Lil Uzi Vert constantly amazes his fans on a regular basis. The rapper is well-known for his distinctive piercings and emo rap music. Uzi is also famous for his facial tattoos and androgynous aesthetics. Recently, the rapper surprised his fans yet again by breaking out his B-boy dancing moves in the streets of New York City.
Sneakerheads are probably staring at Lil Uzi Vert’s latest unexpected public appearance. It was based on the classic Kanye West Nike design period boots, the Philadelphia-bred MC was sighted in. On Tuesday, a video of Uzi dancing in a showy street performance in New York City began spreading, serving fans some of his fluid dancing skills.
Though Lil Uzi Vert’s B-Boy style was certainly a crowd-pleaser, as seen by the ovation in the video, it was his ultra-rare Nike Air Yeezy 1 boots that attracted the most attention on social media. According to StockX, the Yeezys Lil Uzi Vert was wearing were the highly desired “Zen Grey” 1’s, which start at $5,000 and may go up to $50,000.
Lil Uzi Vert and Kanye West have a complicated relationship, thanks in part to the backhanded compliments they’ve given each other over the years. The “Chrome Hearts” rapper said at the 2018 Grammy Awards how Ye encouraged him to swag his family out because of his generosity in fashion.
Following the release of his multi-platinum Eternal Atake album in 2020, Lil Uzi Vert stated unequivocally that no other artist, including Kanye West, was on his level. “On some real shit, Kanye West ain’t f*cking with me,” Uzi said in a video Kanye reposted on Twitter.
“It’s me, like me. Like, for real though, it’s really me. Like, I ain’t gonna lie. Like, when I be making them songs and those songs only go platinum once, I do that on purpose. I swear.”
