Lil Uzi Vert's respect and adoration for Marilyn Manson has long been documented, from the rock legend serving as the rising rapper's style inspiration to Uzi commissioning a custom diamond chain depicting Manson's face.
Manson has since responded with mutual adoration, detailing to host Zane Lowe in a recent interview that he sees "potential" in the young artist.
Now, Marilyn has admitted to Consequence of Sound that he's gearing up to work on Uzi's upcoming album, saying:
"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—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."
