Rich The Kid and Lil Uzi Vert are two young artists who are bringing a new type of energy to the rap game right now. However, over the past several weeks there's been some tension between the two artists.. While neither have really said much to each other since, Uzi and Rich The Kid decided to kick the week off with a bit of shade.
It all started when Uzi debuted his newly dyed green hair on his Instagram story earlier today while holding a massive crab. Later on, he'd post another photo with the crab except the grab was tagged with Rich The Kid's IG handle. Of course, Rich The Kid clearly caught wind of this and reposted the picture of Lil Uzi Vert with the green hair and said, "Aw look at my son @liluzivert tryna look jus like me."
It's incredibly doubtful that Lil Uzi Vert decided to copy RTK's hairstyle. Uzi used to rock with the green dreads once upon a time.
Their feud started around the time Lil Uzi Vert warned up and coming artists not to sign to other DJ's or artists. Many took it as a jab at DJ Drama who Uzi's currently signed to. Rich The Kid reached out to Uzi on Twitter, in the midst of the drama, to offer him a deal to Rich Forever Music. Uzi simply replied back, "Boy I'm not signing for 20 racks."
RTK was asked about the offer in an interview earlier this month. "Maybe I would sign him on my business, but for personal reasons I wouldn't sign him." He said.
