Lil Uzi Vert Biography
Lil Uzi Vert (Symere Woods) is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter. He gained recognition following the release of his Luv Is Rage mixtape, which led to a record label deal with Atlantic Records under DJ Drama’s Generation Now imprint. Woods’ climb into the mainstream began with the single “Money Longer”, which debuted at number 92 on the Billboard Hot 100, his first entry on the chart.
The subsequent mixtape Lil Uzi vs. the World debuted at number 37 on Billboard 200 and was later certified Gold. Woods released two projects following Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World, one a collaboration with Gucci Mane.
He was given his first Billboard number-one single with a feature on Migos’ single “Bad and Boujee”, and later had his first top ten single with “XO Tour Llif3”, which peaked at number 7. Woods’ debut studio album, Luv Is Rage 2, was released on August 25, 2017, and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, later being certified platinum.

Lil Uzi Vert Age
Lil was born on July 31, 1994, in Francisville, Philadelphia, PA. He is 26 years old.
Lil Uzi Vert Family
He was born Symere Woods in North Philadelphia’s Francisville neighborhood. He grew up listening to Mike Jones and Ying Yang Twins. Jones’s debut album was the first album Liz purchased. Later he started listening to Wiz Khalifa and Meek Mill, who influenced his future style.
Lil also began listening to Marilyn Manson, Paramore, My Chemical Romance, and The All-American Rejects when he was 13 years old and has said he is a “big Marilyn Manson fan” and called Mechanical Animals his favorite album.
In his 10th grade, Lil started rapping, calling himself a “regular kid, I didn’t really wanna rap”, after hearing classmate William Aston freestyle over a remade Chris Brown instrumental. Lil, Aston, and another friend created a rap group, Steaktown, which broke up when Woods was 17.
Lil then dropped out of school and soon started working at a Bottom Dollar store, but he quit after 4 days and was chased away from home by his mom. His situation made him get his first face tattoo, the word “Faith” under his hairline, which provoked him to take his rap career seriously.
Lil Uzi Vert Girlfriend
Lil dated fashion designer Brittany Byrd from 2014 to 2017. Brittany, a popular figure among Woods’ fans, was attending Parsons School of Design after moving from California to attend the school when she met Lil.
He first referenced Byrd in the song “Nuyork Nights at 21” from Luv Is Rage and has since made many songs about the designer, even appearing in the music video for Woods breakout single, “Money Longer”. The two broke up on June 26, 2017, with Lil announcing the news with a new song titled “Stole Your Luv”.

Lil uzi vert Releases New Album Eternal Atake
Lil Uzi has released his new album Eternal Atake. The record’s arrival comes as a bit of a surprise, as Uzi never revealed a formal release date. He did, however, share a trailer for the record earlier this week and the tracklist just last night (March 5).
The new album includes his two latest singles, “Futsal Shuffle 2020” and “That Way,” as bonus tracks. In addition, the Internet’s Syd makes a guest appearance on “Urgency,” and he had previously said that “Chrome Hearts Tags” is set to a beat that Chief Keef made.

Eternal Atake is the first new album from Lil Uzi since 2017’s Luv Is Rage 2. The project has been in the works for a long time, with the rapper first teasing its title in July 2018 and then announcing that it had been completed in December 2018. In between then and now, he shared the non-album cuts “Sanguine Paradise” and “That’s a Rack,” as well as the rebellious “Free Uzi,” which his label called “a leak.”
