“I’m at this hotel and I’m having dinner with Rick Ross, who said his dream is to work with me”, Manson explained. And we talked a lot. And I think that’s maybe what rappers like about me.
“You can tell when something is being forced and trying to be something it isn’t”, he added. Because they’re hardcore and they have a different lifestyle that’s unlike mine. While the friendship between the two has been documented on social media on a few occasions, Marilyn Manson has now opened up about his relationship with Lil Uzi Vert. They’re from a different lifestyle. And real scars show it. But Manson sees Lil Uzi Vert as a possible heir to the rocker’s throne of weirdness.
During a recent interview with Zane Lowe, Manson discussed meeting Uzi for the first time and his perspective on the new wave of rappers.
“I didn’t try to return to a sound I had before, but I definitely have the attitude I had before”, Manson explained of the new album’s sound to outcome of Sound. “Not some rock/rap type of thing, something special and new that I think needs to be created just to f*ck the world up more”. I think he has punk rock in him. He’s a little insane motherfucker. And good. Smart as f*ck.
He ends his segment by talking about why this new generation of rappers and artists alike acknowledge him as an influence in their music.
As for Manson’s new record, it’s entitled Heaven Upside Down, and is due out 10/6, and is introduced today by the lead off single “WE KNOW WHERE YOU F*CKING LIVE”. “That one song, “Love On The Brain”, it really hit me because I saw her perform it and she just… meant it”.
Music is so awesomely weird right now.
