The American hip hop scene is constantly growing and, most importantly, changing. While the name Symere Woods may not ring any bell for many, we bet Lil Uzi Vert does. The young American rapper debuted in 2016, at the age of 22. His debut single was ‘Money Longer‘, and it was only available online. Produced by Don Cannon and Maaly Raw, ‘Money Longer’ was the first single from ‘Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World’. This was the rapper’s fourth mixtape. Symere claims that his music is greatly influenced by renowned artists like Marilyn Manson, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams and many others. His popularity grew rapidly after ‘Money Longer’, and now Uzi Vert is influencing other artists all around the world himself. In a relatively short period, he has managed to generate a considerable net worth. So let’s see what his net worth is.

Lil Uzi Vert’s net worth
The young rapper’s net worth is estimated to be almost 3 million dollars. His net worth is mostly generated by his EPs and mixtapes, as well as his live performances. Lil Uzi Vert has collaborated with a great number of hip hop artists since he began his career as a musician. The American artist currently has three EPs and five mixtapes released under his name. On top of that, he has also released 14 singles, half of which have Uzi Vert as a featured artist. Apart from his music albums and live performances, Uzi Vert also generates his net worth through his YouTube channel. In November 2016, his channel earned almost 8.5 thousand dollars. The rapper’s YouTube earnings are continuously growing, this year’s March bringing him almost 110 thousand dollars.
In October 2016, Uzi collaborated with Migos, the hip hop group formed by Quavo, Takeoff and Offset. Together, they released the ‘Bad and Boujee‘ single. This was a great boost for Vert’s popularity, as well as his net worth. ‘Bad and Boujee’ was the first number one Migos single in the US. However, this was not Symere Woods’ breakthrough moment. He gained his popularity among fellow hip hop artists in 2015, when he collaborated with ASAP Ferg and Rich the Kid on Carnage’s ‘WDYW‘.
Described as a natural entertainer, the young rapper always tries to keep his act fresh and engaging. During a recent tour through Europe, he surprised his fans with four unheard songs: ‘LUV Scars K.O.’, ‘YSL’, ‘XO TOUR Llif3’ and ‘Boring Shit’. He has also collaborated with artists like Wiz Khalifa and Young Thug, who appeared on his ‘Luv is Rage’ mixtape, Future, and many others.
Symere Woods, known as Lil Uzi Vert, was born on July 31, 1994, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He grew up in North Philly and got into rap at a young age. He stated that one of his high school friends, William Aston, got him into rapping. Aston is also a rapper, and the two have collaborated on a few songs. They have also performed together during the ‘Lil Uzi Vert & Friends’ concert. Uzi was first noticed by producer Don Cannon, co-owner of record label Generation Now. Symere signed a record deal with this label shortly after meeting Cannon. Together, they released ‘Luv is Rage’ in 2015. In 2016, they released ‘Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World’, ‘The Perfect Luv Tape’, ‘Luv is Rage’ and ‘1017 vs. The World’.
Prior to signing the record deal, Symere had released ‘Purple Thoughtz EP Vol. 1’ and ‘The Real Uzi’ in 2014. In February 2017, Uzi released ‘Luv is Rage 1.5′, ‘Luv is Rage 2.0’ being announced for May, 2017.
