The drama surrounding Lil Uzi Vert’s (possibly dead) music career just never seems to end, and now his label has finally commented on the situation.
Lil Uzi Vert fans were lost when the XO tour Llif3 rapper announced he quit music and deleted everything.
Some believe this is nothing more than a publicity stunt to promote his forthcoming album. Others believe he really is scrapping the entire thing and starting over.
The rapper said it was due to issues with his label. In January, he took to social media to express his frustrations on the delay of his upcoming album, Eternal Atake.
“You think I don’t wanna drop music? You just gotta understand, when people don’t love you, they’ll hold your life if you sign a motherfucking … Hold that shit against you … And that go for the streets too. You ain’t supposed to sign no motherfucking paper in the streets because that’s ratting. How the fuck I even sign this shit as a deal? Motherfucker set myself up. What other way I was suppose to let this shit go? Shit, it be all good at first just like them motherfucking rats. Motherfuckers be right out of jail.”
Fans became even more confused when Vert was announced on the lineup for Rolling Loud festival in Miami. Pretty strange for someone who wanted to go back to being “normal” thanks to problems with his label.
Then, the rapper expressed his frustration about the situation again, saying he was trying to figure it all out.
“I really just want them to respect me. They just gotta respect because like I respect them, that’s the reason why I really went over there,” he adds. “Like normal shit, it’s just a different level in life. Everybody go through the same shit.”
Now, his label, Generation Now, has commented on whether or not we’ll ever get the Lil Uzi Vert album we’re all dying to hear.
On Sunday, label head DJ Drama commented on an Instagram post by DJ Akademiks, which focused on fans’ pleading for Uzi’s record. Drama had yet to speak on the matter, but tried to set the record straight on the post.
“Uzi should put out EA tomorrow or any day he wants,” Drama’s comment read. “He has me and (co-CEO Don) Cannon’s total support and blessings to drop it.”
Let’s hope this comment encourages Uzi to just give us the record already, that is if he didn’t actually delete it.
If he does drop it, Eternal Atake will be the follow-up album to his 2017 Luv Is Rage 2. The album did not have a release date but was set to drop in 2019.
