Lil Uzi Vert Talks 'Luv Is Rage 2' Topping Billboard 200 Albums Chart: 'It Means Everything'

Lil Uzi Vert kicked off 2017 by earning his very first Hot 100 No. 1 with his Migos collaboration "Bad and Boujee" in January, and he went on to notch his first Billboard 200 No. 1 in September with his debut solo album Luv Is Rage 2.

Billboard sat down with the rapper to find out where he was and what went through his mind when he first heard the news that his album topped the chart.

"When I first heard that I went No. 1, I was sitting in the studio in Atlanta," he shares. "Everybody came to show me on their phones, and I was just like, 'Huh, OK!'"

"It means everything," he continues. "I think I'm the only person, anyway, that exists, so I'm already No. 1!'"
