Lil Uzi Vert and Marilyn Manson to work on rock album together
Manson said, “He could make a new thing—not some rock/rap type of thing, something special.”
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.”
