Lil Uzi Vert acquires more bling.
Lil Uzi Vert is one of 2017's breakout stars in the world of hip-hop and he's continuing to bask in that glow.
Elliot Avianne of Avianne & Co. shared a picture and video of the piece on his Instagram account, showcasing an iced-out gun with the number "16" visible at the bottom of the weapon's handle. Incredibly detailed and expertly realized, it's another impressive addition to the celebrity jewelry orders that Avianne & Co. have fashioned recently, with the list of customers including Travis Scott, Offset, Kylie Jenner and many more. It's also a departure from Uzi's recent bling style, which has been dominated by his now-signature upside down cross symbol.
Lil Uzi Vert, iced-out chains aside, has been the center of attention for his music as of late. A recent report from an industry insider suggests that his long-awaited LP project could be dropping in a matter of weeks. Speculation has been rampant as to the contents of any new Uzi material, but no solid confirmations as to a tracklist, cover art or anything of that nature has surfaced as of this writing.
Also, Uzi has been the subject of some mild shade thrown his way by one of his contemporaries, Kodak Black. The Florida native says that he doesn't listen to Lil Uzi Vert of many of the other young rappers in the game right now because he's really focused on his own music.
