Lil' Uzi Vert/Bibi Bourelly/Kodie Shane 

When: Wed., Aug. 2 2017
Price: $40 ADV, $45 DOS
Along with Atlanta’s Lil Yachty, Philly native Lil Uzi Vert has been the poster boy for rap’s next generation. Alternatively lauded as avant garde and trashed as regressive mumbling, Uzi’s has nevertheless rocketed into prominence as he is, according to Noisey, “for better or for worse, yanking people into the future.” The purple-braided, septum-pierced 22-year-old folds a punk and pop-punk influence into his rap recipe, citing Paramore, Marilyn Manson, and GG Allin as primary influences but lacing his melodic, emo vocal affect over hand-picked beats from trap mainstays Metro Boomin, TM88, Don Cannon, and Sonny Digital. His latest single, “XO Tour Llif3,” is a dark, psychedelic rap-rock trip which has made a recent home on the Billboard Charts’ top ten. Uzi brings along two supporting acts, and they’re not to be missed. Bibi Bourelly is powerful vocalist and talented songwriter whose solo career was launched after penning hits for Rihanna like “Higher” and “Bitch Better Have My Money.” Kodie Shane also supports, a playful Atlanta rapper/singer and Yachty-affiliate dripping with youthful confidence and charisma: check out “NOLA” for a taste.
