Lil Uzi Vert and Rich the Kid Square Off at Starbucks
Lil Uzi Vert and Rich the Kid came face to face in Philadelphia over the weekend.
In a series of videos, shared on social media, Uzi is seen confronting Rich while standing on a street corner. Uzi reportedly jumped out of a car before approaching the “Plug Walk” rapper, who stands behind a barricade. The details of their conversation are hard to make out.
It’s unclear what transpired next, but a second video shows Rich running down the street, while Uzi and his crew chase him. A bystander filmed the strange scene from her car.
A third video finds them taking their beef to a local Starbucks. Uzi seemingly throws a punch before Rich runs behind the counter during the melee.
Rich later posted a video of himself and maintains that he was unscathed. “Ni**as pulled up and did what?” he asked while holding up his jewelry. “Walk around Philly like this. Ni**as pulled up and did what?”
The feud was ignited when Uzi signed to DJ Drama over Rich’s label. Rich dedicated an entire diss track, “Dead Friends,” to Uzi on his debut The World Is Yours. Uzi responded with his remix to “Who Run It.”
Despite their scuffle, the rap rivals both took the stage at The Roots Picnic in Philly on Saturday (June 2).
