Watch Wiz Khalifa Welcome Lil Uzi Vert to Taylor Gang
The announcement came onstage during the A Very Uzi Christmas show in the young rapper's hometown of Philadelphia.
In Wiz's surprise appearance, he joined Uzi to perform their song “Pull Up,” before pulling the chain out of his pocket and saying, “Taylor Gang, we got Lil Uzi Vert now -- welcome to the motherf---in' gang. Thank you for bringing me out to Philly. Thank you for being the most influential young ni--a.”
Wiz later confirmed the news on Twitter, replying to a fan's inquiry with "Definitely is gangster."
Taylor Gang and Vert had already shared the same corporate home at Atlantic Records. Along with Wiz, the label also boasts Juicy J, Ty Dolla Sign, Chevy Woods and SosaMann. Reps for the label were on vacation and not available for comment.
“Pull Up” is the first single off Wiz’s upcoming album, Rolling Papers 2, and Uzi is expected to drop his Luv Is Rage 2 mixtape soon.
