Lil Uzi Vert at Express Live
Philly trap rapper Lil Uzi Vert initially earned his nickname because of his rapid-fire rhyming, but these days his moniker doesn't quite suit his style, which, under the tutelage of the A$AP Mob, has morphed into a laid-back, mumbly flow that fans of Future (a frequent collaborator) will likely dig.

Norman Whiteside and more at Live Entertainment Center
Norman Whiteside never gave up hope in the 31 years he spent in prison, preferring instead to focus on the greater plan he believed God had in store for him.

"It's kinda depressing. … I started listening to the songs, and I was like, 'Wow, things haven't changed that much.'"Barcelona celebrates 20th anniversary The Stray Birds at Natalie's
