Lil Uzi Vert has been climbing the ladder at a steady pace, on Oct. 13, his debut album, Luv is Rage 2 has been certified gold.

After releasing several mixtapes including Luv is Rage, Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World, and The Perfect Luv Tape, he dropped his first album in August 2017. His hit single "XO Tour Llif3" went quadruple platinum. The album itself hit the top of the Billboard 200 chart, moving 135,000 units in the first week.

“I ain’t competing with nobody,” he told Fader in an interview earlier this year, when talking about his place in the rap game. “Only person I’m competing with is myself. I’m competing with time. You’ll never ever beat time. Once you beat time, guess what, you die and time beat you.”
