Lil Uzi Vert gives some major praise to Lil Baby, saying that he had to step up his game to hang with him on "Commercial."
Lil Baby released one of the best albums of the year so far with My Turn. His first-ever #1 album, Lil Baby opened so many new eyes to his music, completely taking over this year. His reign at the top of the chart was short-lived with Lil Uzi Vert releasing Eternal Atake soon after, but the album is still charting and streaming well.
One of the stand-outs on My Turn is "Commercial," the collaboration between Lil Baby and Lil Uzi Vert. Before that song was released the two rappers had not collaborated much but now, they seem to be close friends in the studio. Baby and Uzi delivered some magic on the album and, on Twitter, the Philadelphia rapper explained why he went so hard.
Responding to a fan who asked about his verse on "Commercial," Lil Uzi Vert said that he only levelled up in order to stay in the same league as Lil Baby.
"Because lil baby 2 good I had 2 keep up," wrote Uzi.
L-U-V isn't the only one of Baby's peers offering him some much-deserved praise. In recent months, Lil Wayne has named him his favorite artist on two separate occasions. LeBron James also referred to the 25-year-old as the MVP of rap right now.
