Lil Uzi Vert Jumps Into Festival Crowd From 20-Feet High
Lil Uzi Vert doesn’t need to be pushed to the edge.
Over the weekend, the shoulder-shimmying MC found himself atop a large platform while performing “Money Longer.” Counting down for the beat drop, Uzi jumped from a reported 20 feet into a sea of fans at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami with reckless abandon.
It’s unclear whether this led to any injuries, but Uzi was clearly proud of the dangerous stunt, posting footage on Instagram.
That 20-foot drop has now become a meme. Some have compared him to Jazz from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” Others have made him look like a wrestler. Even Diddy got in on the action, writing, “It’s a bird, it’s a plane….It’s @Liluzivert!!!”

Uzi has become known for his daredevil antics. Over the weekend, he also jumped onto rolling carts, which were thankfully held by others to help him roll safely. In the past, he’s also crowd-surfed and been chased by fans around festival grounds.
Onstage shenanigans have seemingly led to success. His “Money Longer” and “You Was Right” singles have both been certified platinum. Plus, “XO TOUR Llif3” is currently No. 9 on the Hot 100. Now, he’s prepping Luv Is Rage 2 for release this year.
