Watch a Very Paranoid Lil Uzi Vert Flee from an Interview with Nardwuar
“Is ecstasy legal here?”
It appears Nardwuar‘s finally spooked someone out of their wits. Unsuspecting Philly rap star, Lil Uzi Vert, who may or may not have been winging the interview on a hefty dose of MDMA, was The Human Serviette’s latest interview subject.
The intrepid Vancouver journalist ran into Uzi backstage at The Breakout Winter Festival. After a bit of friction between Nardy and the green room guard, Uzi finally emerges and allows the painfully-adept researcher to work his magic (for as long as he can bear.) But it doesn’t get too far.
After a bit of the ritual gift-giving, Uzi’s eyes begin to wander, intermittently asking his interviewer about the legal status of ecstasy in Canada. Once convinced that Nardwuar must have some sort of big brother program behind him, his paranoia peaks, and — taking a cue from Kanye’s recent standoff with paparazzi in NYC — bolts out the door to the comforts of a luxury SUV. Nardy gives chase, but it’s too late. Uzi’s already tucked away and making his way out of the stadium lot.
