Hip-hop star Lil Uzi Vert was apparently feeling the metal vibes last night. Enjoy some video of the “XO Tour Llif3” rapper moshing and jamming out to New Jersey deathcore champs Lorna Shore at an eclectic death metal show in Philadelphia.

Lil Uzi Vert and his crew reportedly showed up to the Voltage Lounge on Wednesday just in time for a typically fiery set from the Shore. As shown in some fan footage from the gig, Uzi hopped in the pit for some mosh action as the band performed.
Lorna Shore are currently on tour supporting sprawling death metal outfit the Faceless, the Michael Keene-led group perhaps known as much for their continual hemorrhaging of band members as their progressively technical orchestrations.
Not that the Shore crew are without turnover. (Hey, it happens in metal.) They’re out on the road right now with Signs Of The Swarm’s CJ McCreery — founding vocalist Tom Barber jumped ship to join Chelsea Grin earlier this year.
Regardless, it was Lorna Shore’s sonic assault in ol’ Philly that seemingly got Lil Uzi up and amped for some stellar pit moves. An after-show pic of the band with a beaming Uzi says it all. (He apparently went wild on the dance floor.)
“not only did @liluzivert come see your boys today,” the band posted on Instagram, “him and his squad went harder than anyone so far this tour. thanks for the respect Homie. Til next time.” Check it out, and see the band’s tour dates, below:
