Lil Uzi Vert has been noticeably absent from social media following controversy over his upside down cross. The self-proclaimed rock star was a no-show at the 2017 Soundset Festival in Minnesota on Sunday, May 28.
Fans were especially upset with Uzi skipping out on his performance:

Uzi didn’t provide any reasoning for his absense, but did take to Twitter to hint he was possibly working on “Luv Is Rage 2.”
Uzi wrote, “My brain … I’m going crazy.”

Uzi has been silent over social media following his fallout with Migos Offset over his upside down chain.
Uzi is seemingly practicing the customs of his music idol Marilyn Manson.
Marilyn Mansion essentially confirmed Uzi is in support of his Satanist movement in an eyebrow raising Instagram post.
Manson posted onto IG a photo of Uzi holding a custom icy Ben Baller chain modeled after his image.
He captioned the post, “Lucifer Rising.”
Uzi liked the post in addition to commenting with a fire emoji.
Marilyn Manson’s upcoming “Heaven Upside Down” album and tour also appears to hint the meaning of Lil Uzi Vert’s upside down cross.
Uzi expressed his love for Marilyn Manson during an interview with Nardwuar.
“That’s my father. The Pale Emperor. Listen here, at age 27 I will leave this Earth for this man right here. He’s the pale Emperor.”
Uzi said Manson inspired him to wear a grill.
“I saw Marilyn Manson. He had like the platinum grills and that’s when I got my first ones,” Uzi explained. “And honestly, I didn’t even buy them. My grandma bought those. I paid her back right away though.”
Manson explained Satanism in an old interview.
“In America, Satanism is sensationalized and kinda misunderstood. People associate it with worshipping the Devil,” Manson said. “But it’s really a philosophy of individuality and self-preservation. It’s about being your own God.”
Uzi’s promotion of the upside down cross had upset Migos Offset.
Offset suggested that artists who wear upside down cross chains “get with God.”
“All y’all n****s wearing upside down crosses, even my little partners, stop that s**t. You look lame,” Offset said. “All that worship the devil s**t. Get with God man.”
Uzi was unbothered by Offset’s criticism and continued to troll fans on his IG by posting the satanic symbols, including “666” and “upside down cross.”
Offset wrote in Uzi’s comment section, “I will pray for you my brother.”
Offset’s comments after Lil Uzi Vert wore a $2,400 Valentino shirt with an upside down cross at the Billboard Music Awards.
Sahbabii was not too pleased with Offset’s comments about his “unknownism” culture.
Sahbabii lashed out against Offset in several posts that have since been deleted. The Ninth Ward rapper called out Offset for donating only $1,000 to Atlanta’s Booker T. Washington High School.
“I showed these n****s respect now f**k Migos!! We ain’t goin for no disrespect. Nobody asked this lame ass n***a opinion,” he wrote. “N***a you look lame f**k you talmboud. My cross gone stay upside down y’all n****s donate $1000 to Washington but throw $10,000 in a club. I will beat yo ass.”
SahBabii went on to explain the meaning of his “Unknownism” movement.
“I created this ideology for seeking the truth,” SahBabii said. “I had this mindset since a young boy. I stand strong behind this and we will kill for it. Book coming soon!! Unknownism0 accepting the fact of not knowing if all of this bullsh*t they tell us is true. 666 6 protons, 6 electrons, and 6 neutrons. This has nothing to do with Saint Peter. Unknownism is life. Sorry, we are open minded and don’t follow the wave and believe in bulls**t that hasn’t been proving. Much love to my unknowns #666.”
SahBabii later posted a video calling Offset out.
“You was the first b***h ass n***a to take this s**t to the Internet,” SahBabii said. “You’s a h*e ass n***a. Stop speaking on street s***t you industry pig tail wearing b***h. This n****s wearing pig tails, b***h style. N***a, this s**t all on the Internet. I’ll be glad to be your ass though.”
It didn’t take long for Offset to respond.
“Stop it SahBabii, whatever the f**k yo p***y ass name is,” Offset said. “You fake claiming. You ain’t PD. You ain’t Slaughter Gang. You ain’t the mob. Ain’t from Atlanta. You from Chicago. Then you talking bout you’d beat my ass? I’ll pull up to your hood that ain’t yo hood, have yo n****s wash wipe yo ass in yo hood. You better know what’s going on with set. I know the real mob, man. You ain’t the mob. Ain’t Slaughter Gang.”
XXXTentacion is standing in support of SahBabii in defense of the upside down cross. X took to social media to explain his meaning of the upside down cross.
“By the way, for those of you who don’t know what the upside down cross is, it’s nothing satanic,” X said. “Just so you know. Stop saying that. It’s not controversial.”
XXXTentacion dissed Migos Offset for dissing Sahbabii over “upside down cross” comments.
“I don’t respect no n***a that don’t wanna see a young n***a prosper,” X said. “That s**t p***y. You supposed to wanna help the new generation. Tell this p***y n***a Offset to get off a n***a d**k. The f**k you on that young n***a d**k for? Always on somebody d**k. Shut yo p***y ass up. N****s like 35 still tryna catch the wave. Yo career over.”
