Lil Uzi Vert understood the assignment when he was contacted to feature on the Space Jam: A New Legacy soundtrack. Everything that the Philadelphia rapper has touched recently has turned to fire as Uzi continues his remarkable stretch of new music releases, coming through with “Pump Up The Jam” from the movie’s OST.
The soundtrack features Lil Wayne, Saweetie, Lil Baby, Chance the Rapper, Joyner Lucas, SAINt JHN, and more. Lil Uzi Vert’s contribution has earned rave reviews early on though with fans celebrating his inclusion on the project. Reworking a classic record, Uzi gave a new twist to “Pump Up The Jam” and packed in as many basketball references as he could on the two-minute record.
