Rich the Kid lobs diss track at Lil Uzi Vert

Twitter beef escalates

Queens rapper Rich the Kid and Philly rapper Lil Uzi Vert have mixed words more than once before, but now it seems they are ready to take their beef to the next level with the latest diss track.

The two rappers have been throwing shade at each other online for weeks following their public dispute on Twitter back in January, where the two went back-and-forth about contract negotiations. Lil Uzi fired first by issuing a warning for artists not to sign with any labels created by “a rapper or a DJ.” Rich responded immediately by suggesting he should have signed with him.

The feud then began to drift to Instagram after Lil Uzi Vert took a photo of a $1,000 crab and tagged Rich the Kid, who responded by taking a snapshot with the caption, “aw look at my son… tryin’ to look just like me.” The reference, was, of course, referring to his green-dyed dreads. It may also have something to do with the fact that Uzi first gained media attention after being featured on Carnage’s single “WDYW” featuring A$AP Ferg and Rich The Kid in 2015.

It is worth mentioning that before he had a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 charts and before his guest appearance on the Migos hit single, “Bad and Boujee,” Lil Uzi Vert first signed a record deal with DJ Drama, Don Cannon and Leighton Morrison‘s record label Generation Now.

The release of his album was delayed and it seemed that there was some confusion over why. DJ Drama would later go on Twitter to clarify that “due to any confusion or contrary belief, Lil Uzi Vert is only ‘Signed’ to Generation Now, LLC!” However, it is still unclear what the exact motivation was for his initial Tweet in January.

Now, Rich the Kid has taken things a step further, sharing on his Instagram, video of a new diss track slamming Lil Uzi for copying his style. On the track, Rich raps about how “your money getting shorter,” taking shots at Uzi for his track, “Money Longer” and calling him “little man.”

Only time will tell where their beef will go, but clearly, this has only just begun. For the time being, Rich the Kid is looking forward to the release of his upcoming album, The World Is Yours, on March 30, while Lil Uzi has also been cooking up new music with Playboi Carti.
