Tune in and turn up

Lil Uzi Vert’s Luv Is Rage 1.5 has been getting bumped in the Highsnobiety office an unholy amount since he dropped the four tracks on his SoundCloud recently. All the tracks are strong, but it’s the Philly rapper’s twinkling, melancholic “XO Tour Llif3″ which has blown up the most in popularity, gaining nearly 20 million (!) plays already.

The TM88-produced track is now so big it’s spawned its own hashtag – #LilUziVertChallenge. Fans of Uzi will know that he’s not afraid to rock some nonchalant dance moves on camera. If you’re not, check out his voguing below at New York Fashion Week.

The challenge has captured the hearts of fans, who are replicating the The Perfect Luv Tape rapper’s increasingly iconic strutting, as you can see below.

Could this potentially lead the rapper to the number one slot in the charts in a similar fashion to the viral #MannequinChallenege created by Gucci Mane and Rae Sremmund’s “Black Beatles“? At this rate, it could well do.

Revisit the animated video for “XO Tour Llif3″ below.
