Last Friday (June 17), which marked the fourth anniversary of XXXTentacion’s tragic death in 2018, Lil Uzi Vert was performing at the Lyrical Lemonade’s Summer Smash Festival in Chicago when he paused his set to honor X. The Philadelphia rapper reflected on his and XXXTentacion’s competitiveness during their come up.
“Things were different around that time and different in a good way,” he said. “That was like my only competition.”
“Every time I dropped, he dropped, or every time he dropped, I dropped,” he continued. “Or either he goes No. 1, or I go No. 1. Either way, it was going to go, one of us was gonna turn up.”
