Lil Uzi Vert Calls Himself “Lil Prince” After Jay-Z Compares Him To Prince

His appeal also comes from his mystique as one of the greatest performers of all times. He has also received several Grammy nominations in the short time since gracing the music scene and is known for his hit collaborations – “Bad and Boujee,” “Too Much Sauce,” “Neon Guts,” among others. Prince died in 2016 and is widely regarded as one of the greatest musicians of his generation. He joined the label in 2019 after running into problems with his former label, Generation Now. — Uzi London ????® (@LILUZIVERT) February 10, 2021

Another said, “that’s just disrespectful to Prince.”
“Prince produced n wrote all of his own music he transcended musically [sic] boundaries this fool ain’t shit like Prince he’s ann above average rapper nothing more.”
Lil Uzi Vert is signed to Roc Nation, a label and management company owned by Jay-Z. In his Roc Nation bio, he is described as someone who flaunts a vision and fashion sense just as loud as his futuristic trap sounds. “This is laughable. Uzi goes by many other monikers, including the likes of Baby Pluto, Orenji, Sasuke, or simply Uzi, but it seems that the one that tickles him the most is something that Jay-Z told him, which has him elated. At most, many feel that he is an above average rapper but not a man worthy of being compared to the great Prince. Prince is one of the greatest musicians of all time,” one person commented. Many fans also love that Prince is prolific at all kinds of music and is particularly noted for his post ‘Diamonds and Pearls’ era as a great contributor of hip-hop and R&B. His latest stunt includes his forehead piercing that has a $24-million diamond centered in the middle of his forehead. Among his best music are his highly acclaimed album ‘Luv Is Rage 2’ which became #1 on Billboard’s 200 Chart and became certified gold by RIAA within two months of release. Lil Uzi Vert has always given off an eccentric vibe like the legend Prince, and he is quite well known as one of the original forces in hip hop thanks to his keen ear for good beats and his overall interesting persona, which can go from weird to quirky but still remain likable. Lil Uzi Vert is comparing himself to Prince and has adopted the new moniker “Lil Prince” after he says Jay-Z compared him to the legend. Prince’s appeal to his fans has resulted in a cross-generational fandom that could even be described as cultist. OG and Hov said I’m Like Prince ..so I’m Lil Prince now ??? In a tweet on Monday, he said Jay-Z compared him to Prince, the singer, and songwriter whose real name is Prince Rogers Nelson. However, it seems that Lil Uzi Vert feels he has achieved Prince status as he gives himself the name “Lil Prince.” While it can be argued that both men have some personality traits that are similar, fans do not think that Lil Uzi should even be compared to Prince.
