Before Lil Uzi Vert dropped his fourth mixtape Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World with his track Money Longer bringing a lot of attention & fan fare his way.
Growing up in North Philly Lil Uzi Vert or Symere Woods would jam out to his one and only CD the Ying Yang Twinz but he had other early infliencers like Mike Jones and believe it or not, Marilyn Manson who inspired him to embrace his own musical interest and style. In highschool he was a bit of an outsider and class clown dressing as a skater. He noticed a friend getting some attention for himself from the ladies and respect from the fellas through rapping and this inspired Symere to put together his own music, as soon as he got going he started turning heads. The name lil Uzi Vert has to do with the way he delivers his lines and the vert, or vetical is for the direction he plannd on going in. Alhough his career blew up fast it wasn't that long ago that he was working as a stock boy at a Dollar Store.
