You either love him or you hate him — but odds are that you probably love him. Lil Uzi Vert is known as the cool rapper right now. He has catchy instrumentals, melodic hooks, and says ya ya ya after every line to compensate for so-so lyricism.
Below are four lines, lyrics, from a few different Uzi songs. Also, I don’t think that this is a blow to Uzi. No one ever listened to “Sauce it up” or “Money Longer” looking for existential or deep-thought-out lyricism. You listen to Lil Uzi Vert to get pumped up, in a good mood, and to vibe. You don’t listen to this guy for the same reason you may listen to, let’s say, Dave East or Logic. This in mind, here are 3 Uzi lines that are really stupid and only sound good because of his humming, ad-libs, and expensive beats.
Boring Shit (Luv Is Rage 1.5 
First off, let’s talk about the album’s title: Boring Shit. I don’t really understand why he would purposefully name a group of his music boring and why he would even want people to perceive this about him. But okay, it’s Lil Uzi Vert. He’s weird. Here is a line that it dumb and doesn’t rhyme.
I fck so much that I probably got like seven daughters
Boy you move too quick just like a rabbit
Run the game like tortoise
Fck her to the morning
I think I’m immortal
I think I’m an alien
Let’s break it down quickly. He ends the first line with daughters. But, his second line weirdly ends with rabbit and his third with tortoise. Neither three of these words rhyme or even relate, besides the fact that a rabbit and a tortoise are animals. Then he says he has sex with a woman to the morning and alludes to himself being immortal and an alien. Again, these don’t remotely rhyme nor do they even coincide. This type of out-of-this-world lyricism is what people love about him, but I just think its stupid.
Changed My Phone (1017 Vs the World) 
Cause I’m really your dad
If you want fire with that
Invader Zim cause I’m not from this earth
I’m blocking my haters like Shaq
I don’t know what he is talking about, and I don’t mean this in an intentionally aggressive way. I just actually have no perception as to what he is trying to talk about or even rhyme any of the above words with. He uses the most basic lyrics and rhyme’s dad with that. And then he goes on to say that he ‘blocking his haters like Shaq’. Sweet man.
JuiceMan (Single) 
Quarter brick, half a brick, aye, aye
I feel like I am OJ, aye (okay!)
First club when I’m in LA, aye
Smokin’ that gas where I lay, yeah
You can stay right in the house, aye
But you still is not safe, aye
Come on. He mentions a brick of cocaine and then says the most random and simple lyrics. To compensate for underdeveloped lyrics and poor writing, he says aye aye and okay after every line. Without these adlibs, his listeners would be confused and think he is literally talking nonsense. I think he is anyway.
Ultimately, I don’t hate Uzi. But, I think you can go to any number of his songs and just find gibberish. I do like a few songs and vibe with some of his better lyrics. I think “Dark Queen”, “20 Min” and “Canadian Goose” have some good lyrics. Maybe you don’t think the lyrics above are as bad as I do, but I think it’s still very important to analyze rappers lyrics as much as analyzing what beats, hooks, and features they have.
