Lil Uzi Vert has social media buzzing with accusations he has satanic symbolisms embedded in his “Luv Is Rage 2” album.
In Uzi’s artwork for his debut album, he portrays a demon with bat wings and horns. But fans can easily miss this imagery as Uzi is barely noticeable in the art’s top left-hand corner.
Uzi appears to be flat-out blatant with his satanic stance in track two “444 + 222,” which happens to equal “666.”
Uzi spits Satanic rhymes in “Early 20 Rager,” saying, “Feel like triple-six mafia (666), all I see is demons.”
But even more telling about Uzi in this project is his acknowledgement of his bad ways, and wanting forgiveness from God. He repents in song “How To Talk,” saying, “Even though I’m so evil, I still look at the sky.”
The rock star has long been accused of promoting Satanism. The “XO Tour Llif3” singer has the numerical mark of the beast “666” written in his Twitter bio.
Uzi’s bio reads:
“Luv is R6ge 2 Coming Soon I once w6s the Devul backw6rds…LUVED SEMICOLON Lifestyl3.”
Fans have particularly become intrigued by Uzi’s use of satanism in his art.
His name alone represents Satan.. logic / say "Lil Uzi Vert" 3 times fast, sounds like LUCIFER or nah! Stay woke millineials

Lil Uzi Vert has been promoting the upside down cross as of late. Uzi celebrated his 23rd birthday weeks ago by customizing his Nike Air Jordan 4 retros to have an upside down cross drawn onto the tongue of the sneaker. Uzi showed off his sneakers while hugged up with social media fitness model Brittany Renner. Fans have dubbed the sneakers “Luci-4s.” Lil Uzi Vert’s name sounds like Lucifer when sped up.
Uzi recently copped four icy upside down cross chains.
Uzi first caught criticism for his upside down cross chain in May. Uzi copped the chain in honor of his music idol Marilyn Manson.
Marilyn Mansion essentially confirmed Uzi 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 told Nardwuar he wants to join the “27 Club.” Twenty-seven is the age that some of the world’s most legendary rock stars died.
Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison died at the age of 27 between 1969 and 1971. Kurt Cobain of Nirvana died at age 27 in August 1994.
Uzi told fans he won’t be around much longer in the rap game.
“Y’all old n****s, y’all got talent. Y’all was in this motherf*****g game for 15 years,” he said. “How the f**k you do that? I might not even f*****g be here. I’m not motherf*****g be here for goddamn three more years in this rap game. This s**t is really hard.”
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.
Migos Offset is not rocking with Uzi’s promotion of the upside down cross. 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.
