Lil Uzi Vert has taken his fashion choices to the next level.

In addition to his shocking new fashion partnership, Lil Uzi Vert took the stage at Coachella 2024, sporting an outfit that left fans and critics buzzing. The rapper stepped out in a red leather ensemble and matching red hair. Netizens erupted with commentary, with many users expressing awe at the extravagance of the outfit, while others questioned Uzi’s decision to rock the ensemble.

50 Cent was also a vocal critic. He wrote in a post on Instagram (per ): “Something is in the water. What made you do that, bro?”

DJ Akademiks also offered his perspective on Uzi’s outfit at Coachella, suggesting a curious theory about the rapper's fashion statement. According to Akademiks, Uzi might have been inspired to make a bold statement after observing Playboi Carti's own distinctive wardrobe choices.

“I think Uzi was sitting back watching Carti wearing that thong, and he said, ‘What? This motherf--ker is trying to out-gay me?” Akademiks said. “He's seeing all of the s**t. Zesty … And he walked out there with a Birkin and a crop top.”

Uzi did not respond to the criticism, but he was clearly unphased. His Marc Jacob collaboration came months after his Coachella performance, proving that the rapper has no regrets about his unique fashion choices.
