Video: Rapper Lil Uzi Vert Moshes at a Lorna Shore Show
The worlds of rap and metal seem to be colliding a whole lot lately, whatwith Post Malone palling around with Gatecreeper and Power Trip, and this video by A$AP Ferg featuring metal imagery, just to name a couple of recent examples. Those of you in New York may also recall that Andre 3000’s presence at a Converge / Neurosis show last summer created quite the buzz.
Rapper Lil Uzi Vert is apparently a metalhead as well, as the multi-platinum star was spotted at last night’s show in Philadelphia, PA featuring The Faceless, Lorna Shore and Dyscarnate. Mr. Vert completely went for it during Lorna Shore’s set, not only hanging right up inside the moshpit but getting the party started with an aggressive move. Naturally someone caught it on video with their cell phone, which you can watch below.
This isn’t Vert’s first public brush with metal: the rapper spent $220,000 on a custom Marilyn Manson chain and his Instagram account follows just one person, Manson himself.
