Prince probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when someone brings up Lil Uzi Vert. But Lil Uzi Vert claims that Jay-Z compared him to Prince. He recently tweeted, “OG and Hov said I’m Like Prince ..so I’m Lil Prince now.”

Sadly he didn’t tweet anything further or give insight as to why Jay-Z and Juan “OG” Perez (who is Jay-Z’s business partner and the president on Roc Nation Sport) would make such a comparison.
Twitter still had a field day with this tidbit of information.
