Lil Uzi Vert is not afraid of a logo, whether it’s a classic Louis Vuitton print or a Telfar T-shirt, but he’ll rarely wear another artist’s merchandise, official or otherwise. Over the weekend, though, Uzi did one of his signature private jet wardrobe checks wearing an ensemble that gave his fans some insight into his musical obsessions. He paired a graphic, green flame-printed puffer jacket with a charmingly amateurish Rihanna-inspired T-shirt and sweatpant set.
Rendered in a grayscale color palette, Rihanna’s face is painted in larger-than-life proportions across Uzi’s chest while the words “I Love Rihanna” are written in cursive underneath. His pants, too, feature a classic heart with a banner that reads: “Ri-ri.” It’s not the first time that Uzi has worn his love of Rihanna on his sleeve—in a XXL Freshman video from 2016, Uzi freestyled in an Anti tour T-shirt. But it seems he has moved on from official merch to a more personal expression of his admiration. Uzi is clearly the ultimate Rihanna fanboy (and we can’t blame him).
