Lil Uzi Vert was the latest hip hop star to get dragged on social media. Last week the Philly-bred rapper was spotted wearing a $2400 stripped Valentino shirt, and the memes started rolling in.
But one person who thought the look was dope was fellow rapper Machine Gun Kelly. In fact, Kelly wore the exact same top and jeans in the video for “No More Bad Songs“, but oddly didn’t receive the same reaction from fans.
HipHollywood caught up with the Cleveland bred rapper to talk about all the controversy surrounding Uzi’s eclectic sense of style. “If that’s what’s really stopping traffic in the world is that meme, we are in a shitty world,” he said.
Kelly went on to praise younger hip hop artists like Vert for being themselves, and helping to push the culture forward, even if they are scrutinized.
“I think all the political weirdness, and all the reasons to stand-up and speak out is bringing art back and the culture. I think even if it’s weird and you don’t understand it, so was Basquiat’s paintings. It was angry, but there was something about it, it wasn’t the norm…I think that that’s sweet right now.”
During the show MGK and Vert were spotted being their carefree selves and smoking some weed in the audience during Celine Dion’s performance of “My Heart Will Go On.”
