Lil Uzi Vert was born on July 31, 1994 in Philadelphia, PA. His real name is Symere Woods, and his stage name is Lil Uzi Vert. When Uzi was attending high school, his best friend William Aston got him into rapping. They used to rap all the time and write poems and record them in their makeshift studio. Being the only child at home, Uzi’s mom let him do whatever he wanted, so it gave Aston and him long nights to record their raps. Uzi always told his friends that he did not want to become popular; he just wanted to be famous. Last year, Uzi had a dirt bike stunting charge because he was caught doing stunts on the street. All the charges on the incident were dropped, and Uzi currently has a clean slate. Dirt biking and Four- wheeling however is one of Uzi’s favorite things to do in his down time. He has a whole collection of cars, bikes, and four-wheelers. Lil Uzi also just went back to his old high school and performed his newest song XO TOUR LIFE.
