A$AP Rocky is undoubtedly one of the most stylish hip-hop artists out there, but plenty of people are coming fro his throne. One of the rappers closest to that title is Lil Uzi Vert, who recently declared that they dress better than Rocky during an interview at this year's BET Awards. However, the 27-year-old still gave the New York MC his flowers for influencing their drip and helping them out in that regard. During their conversation with Billboard on the red carpet, Uzi answered some questions on which other artists have inspired them the most throughout their career. Furthermore, their answer gave credit in the realms of both fashion and music to three names in particular.

"Mike Jones really helped me be not repetitive in a bad way…” Lil Uzi Vert started off his remarks. “Kendrick [Lamar] helped me with my flow, [and] ASAP Rocky helped me with my clothes. I’m flyer than ASAP Rocky nowadays. He can’t touch me nowadays… he know I got them pieces in the corner, but shoutout to Flacko, though." We'll see if we get a response from the 34-year-old anytime soon.

Regardless of that debate, the Philly star has a huge week to look forward to, as they confirmed that their highly anticipated album Pink Tape (sometimes referred to as The Pink Tape rather than how it appears on streaming) will release this week on Friday (June 30). Not only that, but Lil Uzi Vert's new project appears to contain 26 tracks. It will be their longest project to date based on the pure size of the tracklist, which obviously suggests a long runtimes well. In addition, Uzi also seemingly changed the album on Apple Music from the original.
