Lil Baby and Lil Uzi Vert are leaders of their generation. We’ve witnessed both artists get it out of both and transform into the biggest stars of today. Baby became an inescapable force in the music industry. Records like “My Dawg” took over the streets while songs like politically-conscious “The Bigger Picture” showcased his range. On the other hand, Lil Uzi Vert has undoubtedly pushed the boundaries when it comes to his sound and style, especially in recent times. Though “Just Wanna Rock” didn’t top the Billboard Hot 100, it’s yet another anthem that proves Lil Uzi hardly misses.

Though both rappers don’t necessarily work together often, they certainly frequent the same spaces. This weekend, both rappers hit the stage for Rolling Loud where they delivered memorable moments. Baby proved that “Freestyle” always hits while Uzi got fans excited for his forthcoming Pink Tape as he showed love to Playboi Carti and claimed he has JT believing in the devil. However, fans still hope that we’ll hear more music from them in the near future if possible.

Lil Uzi Vert Praises Lil Baby

Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Baby both held it down at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards, where the former actually got slimed. However, on the red carpet before the award show, the rapper caught up with Young Hollywood who asked him who he was most excited to see. “I heard Lil Baby’s going to be here,” he said. Then, the reporter asked what song he’d want to perform with Lil Baby if he had the chance. “He has a lot of great songs, like, I never heard a bad song from Lil Baby in my life ever,” he added. “But we have a song and I would love to perform it with him.”

Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Baby have worked together on a few records in the past. The two linked up on My Turn highlight, “Commercial.” Prior to that, Lil Uzi Vert appeared on Lil Baby’s Harder Than Ever project on the Gunna-assisted, “Life Goes On.” Perhaps, we’ll get to hear more from Lil Baby and Lil Uzi Vert. Though Pink Tape is rumored to be featureless, maybe Uzi will make an exception for Lil Baby since he’s such a fan. Check out the clip above and sound off with your thoughts in the comment section below.
