I was just scrolling Twitter when a muted video of a kid with heavy artillery in one hand and a guitar in the other flashed before my eyes. I couldn’t not click. As soon as the words “XO Tour Lif3” flashed, it was clear that some groundbreaking shit was about to go down. Shortly after the slow motion gun flashing suspense ended, an epic guitar riff ensued, and a group of guys started completely ripping apart a cover of Lil Uzi Vert’s crossover hit. We all knew “XO Tour Llif3” was an emo song, so it was only a matter of time before it got a cover in the style
The banger is by a West Palm Beach, Florida-based band called Fame on Fire and if this doesn’t put an ear-to-ear smile on your face, you might need counseling because you don’t have the capacity for innocent happiness. Admittedly, the optics of a bunch of black kids flashing guns are a bit cringe-worthy, but the riffs are next level and everyone seems to be having a good time so who are we to complain? This is the future Uzi wants and he might be getting it real soon. Watch the video above.
