Kanye West is an enigma whether people hate or love him. Over the years, music lovers have known him for his controversies and no-filter remarks. His interviews and mid-concert speeches often spiral into self-centered or offensive territory. But there are things that go unnoticed because people focus more on his ranting rather than meaning. It includes Ye’s habit of putting people upfront whom he feels deserve appreciation. This side of the rapper faded away in the fog that his disputes created. However, the rise of Lil Uzi Vert on Spotify has once again proved his words right.

Hip Hop All Day recently reported on Twitter that Lil Uzi Vert has taken over the top spot on Spotify. It is revealed that the hype of his new album ‘Pink Tape’ has brought him into the limelight.
