Providence College announced the musical act for this year’s Midnight Madness, and the musician is…..Lil Uzi Vert.

For those of you who may not know Lil Uzi Vert, he was nominated for 3 Billboard Music Awards for 2017 and is most well-known for his song “Bad and Boujee” that he is featured on with Migos. A song that went 4x platinum. For us folks who may be a little older, it doesn’t get much more “on the rise” than those two right there. If you’re a young college kid and looking to have a blast at a show, that’s who you’re looking for. A 22-year old rapper who is rising faster than Usain Bolt in the music game.
You know who will also be at Midnight Madness…the Friar Queen herself, Miss Doris Burke.
Doris Burke is the best. Fact.
Now, I’m going to connect some dots here. When I was looking up Noah Locke highlight videos when he scheduled his official visits, I noticed that one of his mixtapes was soundtracked by Lil Uzi Vert himself. Coincidence? Who’s to say?
There’s literally nothing hotter in the rap game than this dude right now, so kudos for PC getting such a big up-and-comer for Midnight Madness.
