During an interview with GQ, the “Just Wanna Rock” rapper explained that he wants to focus more on fashion and spend less time making music.

“Honestly, in my heart, I think I do this better than music,” he told the publication. “'Cause the music s--t is effortless. I actually take my time with this.”

Since then, Uzi has become a fashion icon, blending luxury and streetwear into a vibe that is unique to him. Here are some of Uzi’s most viral getups.

Uzi stole the show at the 2022 Met Gala.

One of his most recent appearances at the 2022 Met Gala left spectators in awe as he donned an eye-catching ensemble. He rocked a black silk jacket, black cropped trousers and raw-edge skirt. The outfit seamlessly blended haute couture with his signature avant-garde style, and it matched the event’s Gilded Glamour theme.

Uzi’s striped shirt sent the internet into a frenzy.

One of Uzi’s earlier fashion moments came in 2017. The rapper was spotted with a form-fitting stripped t-shirt from French clothing brand Faith Connexion. According to XXL, the t-shirt was available at Barney’s New York for $410, but hip-hops weren’t in a rush to cop the expensive garment. Rappers like Waka Flocka joined social media users who were dragging Uzi and suggesting that he should not be considered a hip-hop artist (via Atlanta Black Star).

Uzi was inspired by Daft Pink during his ‘Pink Tape’ era.

Uzi is a huge fan of Thom Browne and regularly shops at the designer’s flagship store. In 2022, Uzi was spotted leaving the Tribeca retailer decked out in a shrunken Thom Browne suit and puffy ski boots. Uzi complimented the look with a helmet similar to the ones worn by Daft Punk. However, Uzi’s helmet was pink and featured glowing cat ears.
