In 2016, Lil Uzi Vert explained his love for Marilyn Mason during an interview with Nardwuar. Then, earlier this year the Philly rapper cemented his love for the rocker with a $220K diamond choker and pendant of Manson by jeweler Ben Baller.
Well, Manson and Uzi have officially met. While Manson promotes his new album he spoke to Consequence of Sound and revealed plans on working with Uzi to create a rock album.
“He wants to do a rock album next, and I would love to see that happen because I think that he could make a new thing,” Manson says. “Not some rock/rap type of thing, something special and new that I think needs to be created just to f**k the world up more. I think that if I had to pick what Lil Uzi Vert should be, if he’s involved in rock, it’s an early Bad Brains or Faith No More, but with a catchier element. I think he has punk rock in him. He’s a lil crazy motherf**ker. And good. Smart as f**k. He has an attitude like I did, and I like that about him.”
