In 2012, Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Allderdice mixtape. We were vocally introduced to some of the neweet edition to the roster. Members such as Juicy J and Lola Monroe showed us what a collaboration would be like with all of them on one track. Remember “T.A.P” and “The Code”? Now lunging into 2016, the gang released TGOD Vol. 1. JR Donato, Juicy J, Ty Dolla $ign, Chevy Woods, Sosamann. The list can unravel forever. Now that list unfolds with Lil Uzi Vert’s name; Philly’s hottest young talent.
On Dec. 22, it was a very Uzi Christmas, with Lil Uzi Vert taking the stage in Philadelphia. A$AP Ferg joined Uzi for a performance of “Uzi Gang” and “WDYW.” It wasn’t until Wiz joined the stage, announcing the signing of the 22-year-old Philly native. Wiz pondered over the members of Taylor Gang, before reaching the name of Lil Uzi.
Khalifa didn’t stop there, adding in how hot of an artist Uzi is. Well, it’s official. Lil Uzi Vert is officially signed to Taylor Gang under Atlantic Records. The two linked up earlier this year for “Pull Up,” a single that will appear on Wiz’s Rolling Papers 2 album. with Uzi now a member of the Gang, we’ll surely hear more collaborations in the near future. We also await the arrival of Uzi’s ‘Luv is Rage 2’ project. That’s sure to hosts a few or more bangers.
