Lil Uzi Vert recently chopped it up with Billboard and talked about his success as an artist this year. What was interesting about Uzi cover story was the fact that his hit song "XO Tour Lif3" was originally a throwaway song. 

I was on tour overseas with The Weeknd and Bryson Tiller and I put out these four songs on SoundCloud. They were just throwaways, and one of them, “XO Tour Llif3,” started taking off.

Lil Uzi not only credits "XO Tour Lif3" for his success but also just being real in his music making it relatable. 

"I was speaking authentic on “XO Tour Llif3.” Anyone can relate: I was in a dark space, so I went with it. That’s how I made the album. I just got that feeling: These are the songs, that’s it."
