Lil Uzi Vert was spotted moshing like his life depended on it at metalcore band Lorna Shore’s recent gig. Check out footage below.
The Philadelphia-based rapper has previously made numerous references to his love of the rock scene. During his chaotic London show back in April, he proclaimed that he was “the last living rockstar”. Last year, the musician forked out $100k on a Marilyn Manson diamond chain – after hailing the shock rocker as “the pale Emperor”. On Instagram, he’s shared posts of himself rocking out in his car.
Taking things up a notch, Uzi attended Lorna Shore’s show at Philadelphia’s Voltage Lounge last week. Seen in the pit along with production collective Working On Dying, the rapper went in hard – moshing and high kicking his way through the set.

He certainly impressed Lorna Shore, too. Posting a snap of themselves backstage with Uzi, the band said that “him and his squad went harder than anyone so far this tour.” A hashtag reading ‘collab’ also suggests that they could be working on a project together.
Last month, the rapper was reportedly involved in a fight with Rich The Kid at Starbucks. Fan-shot footage emerged showing Uzi verbally confronting his fellow star on a street corner, before a physical confrontation started in the coffee shop.
Back in May, Lil Uzi Vert teamed up with Travis Scott and Kanye West on the track ‘Watch’. West’s verse on the song appears to speak of his 2017 battle with opioid addiction, as well as his return from the ‘sunken place’.
Meanwhile, the cancellation of the rapper’s scheduled appearance at Santa Teresa Festival resulted in fans invading and vandalising the stage.
