Lil Uzi Vert attracted the most followers out of any other artist on Soundcloud in 2016.
Lil Uzi Vert's success started from the grassroots with fans chasing him at his shows as if he was a fifth Black Beatle. Tuesday, Soundcloud awarded the Philadelphia trap star a trophy for the most follows in 2016. Lil Uzi took to Instagram to announce his prize.
"The internet 2016 . 2017 on Da Way Don't Forget Where You Came From 2," the LUV Is Rage rapper posted in the caption adding goat and fire emoji. The trophy is a physical rendering of a sound wave.
The diminutive emcee has 857,000 followers on the streaming service website. And according to Billboard, most of them -- about 815,000 --subscribed to his channel last year. A few months ago, HNHH shared some gems from Lil Uzi's 97-track-heavy Soundcloud catalog.
The rapper is currently on tour in Europe with The Weeknd and Bryson Tiller.
