Atlanta rapper Young Thug‘s here for Lil Uzi Vert‘s career. The hip-hop star has saluted the popularity surrounding Vert these days.

A screenshot has surfaced of Thugger getting gushy over an Uzi pic.

This week, Uzi Vert addressed some nasty shade thrown his way from fellow rap rookie Kodak Black.

“What do I think about Kodak? What? That’s one of my classmates on the XXL [Freshmen class]. I f*ck with Kodak. What? Because he was rapping when he said that? I f*ck with Kodak though. That ain’t nothing. I ain’t poor. It’s just you old n*ggas.”

A few days ago, Kodak Black publicly singled out Uzi and fellow rap rookie Lil Yachty.

“Listen, I got some more albums coming out. I am not like these other n*ggas. I don’t even listen to Uzi. He need a d*ck in the booty. They confusing the crew. I don’t even listen to Yachty. N*gga don’t be dropping no knowledge.”
