Whether you witnessed Moonlight overthrowing stodginess at the Oscars or just snoozed, Lil Uzi Vert did neither of these things and surprise released a quick tape. Luv Is Rage 1.5 is a four-song semi-sequel to Uzi's breakout tape of the same name. Wild how the bizarre numbering conventions for the Kingdom Hearts games have spread to rap. Anyways, the EP begins with a song called "Boring Shit" that might be the most definitively Uzi song ever, with a joyous Reading Rainbow sample and lyrical shout-outs to Steven Universe, 808s & Heartbreak, and hentai (anime porn, for those who still have God in their lives and aren't sinners like us weebs).

Other songs find the Philadelphalien reflecting on joining the XO crew on tour and talking to Future in Dubai. You can listen to Luv Is Rage 1.5 below.

Phil still can't believe Uzi released an AMV as a music video once. He's on Twitter.
