A collaboration with Atlantic Record’s multi-platinum selling artist Lil Uzi Vert to produce the world’s first hip-hop music video that incorporates deep fake technologies.

Directed by Grammy nominated Yasha Gruben and produced by Bill Posters, the music video for ‘Wassup’ feat. Future is from Lil Uzi Vert’s second US number-one album Eternal Atake. The concept parodies digital life under lockdown and features Lil Uzi Vert as Dadaesque reincarnations of influential celebrity icons from the fields of art, music and politics.
