Lil Uzi Vert isn’t your average rapper’s name. We’ve even heard theories about Uzi’s name, with one even claiming that the name was a form of devil worship. Despite this, he has risen to become one of the most popular rap artists on the planet, and in a new interview, Lil Uzi claims that the name was given to him by a “crackhead.”

Lil Uzi explained in a 2016 interview that his name came from someone comparing his fast rapping style to a machine gun.

Lil Uzi insists on being referred to by his rap name rather than his official title. Adin Ross, a Twitch streamer, recently irritated Uzi by insisting on calling him by his real name, Symere.
