Li Uzi Vert, seemingly innocuous rapper with upbeat melodies. What could be wrong with that? Well, where to start. First off, his lyrics, though set to catchy base lines and drum beats are full of dark, brooding lyrics. Secondly, the person he evidently idolizes is none other than infamous satanist Marilyn Manson. This video published below examines evidence that points to Li Uzi Vert being more than a successful rapper. They conclude he is much closer to being a satanic puppet.
It is important to look at the focus of Li Uzi Vert’s obsession to better understand what makes him tick. Marilyn Manson is a known satanist, as we mentioned above, and he enjoys creating dark, edgy lyrics and a goth appearance. The fact that Li Uzi Vert idolizes such a person, even going so far as to call him “dad” or “father” is disheartening to be sure and merely more evidence that he could be Satan’s puppet in today’s music industry.
Li Uzi Vert has achieved great success in 2017. After achieving this success, in April 2017, he was able to afford to have a custom made pendant created depicting none other than his idol Marilyn Manson. Li Uzi Vert spent $220K to have the custom piece made. While that alone is odd, it was the response from Marilyn himself that is the most troublesome. After Li Uzi Vert posted a photo of his custom necklace on Instagram, Marilyn responded by reposting the photo with “Lucifer Rising” in the caption, which is disturbing to say the least.
Though the Bible doesn’t address rap music specifically, Philippians 4:8 does speak to the importance of guarding what we put into our minds in a general sense. It reads as follows:
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things…”
It’s safe to say that Lil Uzi Vert’s music would most certainly not qualify.
