The rapper told fans in a video posted on Instagram that his label is to blame.

“I’m tryna drop something. I dropped ‘New Patek.’ That shit ain’t getting leaked. I’ve been tryna drop something new. Bro, this is my life now. All I can do is make music and sit back and wait for y’all response and make visions to this shit,” Lil Uzi Vert said. “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 muthafuckin’ … Hold that shit against you.

“And that go for the streets too. You ain’t supposed to sign no muthafuckin’ paper in the streets because that’s rattin. How the fuck I even sign this shit as a deal? Muthafucka set myself up. What other way I was suppose to let this shit go? Shit, it be all good at first just like them muthafuckin’ rats,” he continued.

This video is a follow-up to Lil Uzi Vert’s story thanking his supporters and pronouncing that he’s done with the industry.

“I wanna take the time out to say I thank each and every one of my supporters, but I’m done with music,” Lil Uzi Vert says. “I deleted everything. I wanna be normal…I wanna wake up in 2013.”

Eternal Atake would have been Lil Uzi Vert’s follow-up album to his 2017 Luv Is Rage 2. The album did not have a set release date but was set to drop in 2019. Let’s hope he’s not serious about deleting all of the work he’s done.
