Before Lil Uzi Vert dominated the mainstream with “XO TOUR Llif3,” he garnered viral attention with his Lil Uzi Vert Vs. The World track “You Was Right.” The Metro Boomin-produced song was certified Platinum in March 2017, his first solo single to earn the achievement. It also stood out for its trippy, Alice In Wonderland-esque video that currently has over 80 million YouTube views.
