Lil Uzi Vert and Future Release Their Newest Album: Bluto x Baby Pluto


Quinn Carlson and Gemma Andrew

     On November thirteenth of 2020, popular rap artist Lil Uzi Vert came out with a new album with another famous rapper, Future, called Pluto x Baby Pluto. There are 24 songs in this album and two of them are already on Spotify’s Top Hits in America. Lil Uzi Vert has always been one of my personal favorite artists and this album is some of his best work. Personally, I love this album and every song, my favorite is the third song called Heart In Pieces. 

     Lil Uzi Vert is only 26 years old and has already released 12 albums. He has been rapping since the young age of 10. When he was only 17 he formed his first rap group called Steaktown with a couple of his friends. In 2010, he left the group and started to focus on himself and his own music. Back then he called himself “Vert” which he said stood for vertical. The rap name Vert later developed into Lil Uzi Vert. 

     Future is 37 years old and has released 8 studio albums, 16 mixtapes, 4 retail mixtapes, 1 soundtrack album, and 113 singles. He released his first mixtape in 2010, however, he had a big breakthrough in the rap industry in the year of 2011. He wrote a single hit called ‘Racks’. This song blew up with major artists such as Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and Nelly who decided to remix the anthem helping Future start his career in rap music production.  

     Pluto x Baby Pluto immediately rocketed up to top spots on many charts, gaining a lot of popularity very quickly. It quickly became one of his most popular whole albums and also captivated a wider audience than normal due to Future’s collaboration on it. There are some songs still climbing billboard charts along with the album as a whole. Lil Uzi Vert has only gained popularity over the last 4 years, and every new album, single, or collaboration he releases becomes very popular very quickly. Combine that with Future’s clout and talent as a rapper, and you have a winning combination destined for the stars.

     The album has done very well overall, and has brought both artists new fans. They worked hard on the album, and deserve every bit of praise they get. It will only continue to rise and provide more and more enjoyment. It is only the newest of the popular music that Lil Uzi has produced, and he will continue on his journey, along with Future to create great music and bring a lot of happiness to many people.
