Shouts out to Lil Uzi Vert for shouting out T-Mobile Sidekicks on his latest partnering with ATL-rap producer/impresario Zaytoven. It’s one of a multitude of elements on the track that’ll elicit a chuckle or at least a grin, which doesn’t even include the twinkling keys and jingling bells. There’s Uzi Vert telling a chick “ooh you need some Trident,” his assessment that he’s “balling like Bojack” and his not-so-humble brag that “I fucked her in the SLS, you fucked her in the Hyatt.” (I’m not a total expert on such things, but I can’t recall too many rappers using hotel sex as a measurement of status.)
Not unlike Rich Kidz’ “More” from a few years back, it’s an ode to conspicuous consumption that’s never grating in its braggadocio, it’s giddy. But its also a Queen Bey “best revenge is your paper” type of joint with the roles reversed. Uzi Vert’s gonna get the last laugh not merely because he’s the one with the mic, but because he always seems to be laughing.
