"'Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World' sounds like full surrender — a tight and concise snapshot of Uzi’s liminal period as he transitioned from one to watch to simply The One. All of his signatures are here: freewheeling cadences, playful ad-libs, spring-loaded melodies, sticky hooks and an ear for beats as intriguing as they are repellant (look no further than the kooky accordion backdrop of “Ps & Qs” for proof). He offers up an audible feast for the digital age, cherry-picking everything from the gripping noir of Chicago drill to the bubbliness of ringtone rap and the infectious melodicism of early aughts pop-punk."
