In my opinion Lil Uzi Vert is the best rapper of this generation, possibly even the best in history. Lil Uzi Vert was born in the North side of Philadelphia, in a small neighborhood called Francisville. He was 18 when he made his first song in 2012 called “Steaktown Anthem”, ever since then Lil Uzi Vert has dropped 4 mixtapes and 1 album. 

The wait for Lil Uzi Vert’s upcoming album “Eternal Atake” is tremendous. Fans have been waiting for over a year and a half just for this album and there still is no release date, no official album cover, and we basically know nothing about this upcoming album, except the name which was posted with the non-official cover art in July. The Lil Uzi Vert fans are fiending for music, the last song we got from Lil Uzi Vert is called “New Patek”, which released on September 17th of 2018.

Kevin Magaña said, “I think Lil Uzi Vert is the best rapper because he has so many flows and he has some of the best fashion in the rap game.”

Lil Uzi Vert’s first song that really blew him up was Money Longer which was released in early 2016, but he caught steam after his amazing debut mixtape “LUV Is Rage” in October of 2015. He has so many different flows inside of his songs, there is never a song that sounds the same from Lil Uzi Vert. In his song “New Patek” he switched his flows 3 times in the 6 minute song. In my opinion his best mixtape/album is “The Perfect LUV Tapes”, he mastered that mixtape, and I think it’s one of the best projects that he has ever created.

The argument that Lil Uzi Vert is the best rapper of this generation is a big statement, but it is one I am going to stick with. Lil Uzi Vert makes all his lyrics himself, he gets in the booth and he just freestyles, he makes his songs on how he is feeling at that time. I feel like when he finally drops Eternal Atake all of his haters are going to turn into fans and they will think the same thing as me. I listen to a lot of music and I have never heard of an artist that has more hits then Uzi. If you do not write your own music, I do not think of you as a artist, you are more like a performer, so the fact that Lil Uzi Vert writes and makes his own lyrics makes him better than Drake and Cardi B.

Lil Uzi Vert at his recent event said, “The album is finished and I am gonna drop it,” but there has been no official release date or no other announcements since then.

This album is going to be worth the wait and all of the people that hate or do not like Lil Uzi Vert’s music, will listen and love his music. He has recently played a new snippet at Rolling Loud Los Angeles on December 14th 2018 called “Rack” and it sounds pretty good, and he also played another snippet. The song has no official name yet but fans named it “Bambino”, but that is not the official name for the song.

Hopefully we get new music very soon from what I believe to be the best artist alive.
