Symere Woods is a famous musician in the hip hop genre and he got famous after writing his song “Money Longer”.
Symere was born on July 31, 1994 in Philadelphia.
Woods spent his childhood there, in North Philadelphia.
His neighbourhood, the Francisville, according to Uzi, made a great home.
Symere says that he always listened to music wherever he was. He was so influenced by all of the great artists he listened to, such as: ASAP Rocky, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Kanye…, that he decided he wanted to make a rap career on his own.
The thing is, he was always very sceptic and he didn’t know will he be able to get famous because he was afraid his talent won’t be good enough.
He says that he can’t be more grateful than he is to his friend who got him into rapping all the way back while they were in high school. William Aston always sang, rapped and wrote rhymes in his free time, so Woods noticed that someon shares his love for music.
When Symere started to hang out with Aston, his wish to rap himself got bigger and bigger and he eventually started to rap on his own.
Uzi decided to get involved in the music industry when he was young and that is why he had a big chance: he started in his late teens.
He started to rap for money because he was already pretty popular in his city. He is always really honest on his interviews and says that he doesn’t lie about his early life. He claims he quit school after realizing that he can make a career in the music industry.
He first collaborated with DJ Diamond Kuts and was featured on his album which gave him a good boost at the beginning of his career to get noticed by other music labels and similiar.
Luckily for Symere, that’s exactly what happened. Don Cannon noticed Uzi’s talent to rap and he saw a lot of passion in what he was doing. Cannon got some help from DJ Drama and they let Uzi sign a contract with Atlantic Records and Generations Now.
Woods had no time to waste and he started to write rhymes as soon as he got his contract. He spent a few months writinf his mixtape „Lil Uzi vs The World“ which was released in early 2016.
He made a few smart choices while making the mixtape, including featuring Metro Boomin and Maaly Raw.
The mixtape got famous because of two songs that were featured: You Was Right and Money Longer. These songs reached the Billboard Hot 100 and the album itself made its way to the list later.
His fifth mixtape „The Perfect Luv Tape“ was no minor success too. Lil Uzi made his way to the stars.
His most famous song, howewer, came in late 2016.
Symere decided to pair up with one of the currently biggest new artists, Migos, and they decided to write a catchy song that’s going to be played non-stop.
They came up with ‘Bad and Boujee’ which managed to land on first place of the US Billboard list in the very beginning on 2017.
He is currently working on his new mixtapes since he doesn’t want to spend any time having fun until he feels like he made his way to the very top.
Uzi said that a lot of mixtapes are coming up soon and that he may even make a part two for one of his previous mixtapes.
Lil Uzi rarely shares any information about his family and his life before the fame. He says that he knows what it’s like to be afraid of something and that he doesn’t want his family to experience that.
He also claims that the worst thing about being famous is cameras that follow him absolutely anywhere he goes.
