Lil Uzi Vert Recalls Being Beaten To Mobb Deep’s “Shook Ones”
(AllHipHop Rumors) Dang Lil Uzi!
Lil Uzi Vert & Pharrell recently discussed what it was like collaborating for the first time, and they reflected on the passing of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy.
While reflecting on “Shook One’s” Part 2, Pharrell spoke about seeing plenty of individuals fighting to the track as well as someone getting shot over it. Lil Uzi Vert even revealed that he “got a beating” to that song. Uzi didn’t go into detail about who, what, when, where, or why the beating took place, but I’m guessing he was getting beat by an older family member.
Uzi also spoke about the impact of the record.
“It’s not even just Hip Hop. In America, you can’t not hear that song. Like, even if you don’t know the name, if I play the song, you’ll be like… yeah I know that song,” said Lil Uzi Vert.
Uzi has stated that he grew up on a lot of classic Hip Hop. Uzi said that it’s impossible not to know that song. He credited Prodigy for having amazing lyricism and Havoc for having great production.
