Nardwuar vs. Lil Uzi Vert is one of the best things on the internet today.
The rapper agreed to talk to the notorious video interviewer when he came knocking on his dressing room door in Vancouver. But things inevitably got a little weird once Nardwuar got into his groove.
He should have known, doing thorough research and getting celebs extremely thoughtful and totally bizarre gifts is Nardwuar’s whole shtick. Lil Uzi Vert seemed to be comfortable with the first two gestures, but then the interview escalated.
Lil Uzi Vert completely froze up when he received a poster of the Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects. “I’m glad I’m a good guy because if I was under investigation for something, I’d be scared right now,” he said. “How you know that? They don’t even know that. I don’t talk to them about that,” he hinted at his crew. “He know too much. I can’t do this.”
