Lil Uzi Vert, the Philadelphia rapper, has once again surprised fans with a fresh look, igniting discussions across social media platforms. The recent alterations to Uzi’s hair length and color have led many to draw parallels with the distinctive style of Frank Ocean.
On January 2nd, an important moment unfolded in Philadelphia as Cherelle L. Parker was inaugurated as the city’s first female mayor. Notable personalities, including Freeway and DJ Jazzy Jeff, graced the occasion. Among them was Lil Uzi Vert, who stood out with his newly cut short and green-dyed hair.
Almost instantly, social media became abuzz with comparisons between Lil Uzi Vert’s latest look and Frank Ocean’s iconic appearance, particularly reminiscent of the cover art for Ocean’s 2016 album, “Blond.”
Twitter users wasted no time in expressing their thoughts, with one stating, “Uzi in his Frank era,” and another affirming the resemblance, stating, “N***a in his Blond era.” Some even coined the term “Frank Uzi” to encapsulate the striking similarity.
