Lil Uzi Vert Trends As Rapper Announces The End Of His Music Career
Lil Uzi Vert shocked fans Friday night when he announced his decision to step away from music.
“I wanna take the time out to say I thank each and every one of my supporters but I’m done with Music,” he wrote on Instagram Stories. “I deleted everything. I wanna be normal … I wanna wake up in 2013. You are free.”
Uzi was expected to release his sophomore studio album, Eternal Atake, sometime in 2019. The Philly rapper had been teasing the project for a minute, sharing singles, snippets, and controversial visuals. During a concert in early December, Uzi told the crowd that the much-anticipated album was finally completed, though he didn’t share an expected release date.
It remains to be seen if Uzi sticks to his guns, but if he does, Eternal Atake would’ve marked his first proper release since 2017’s Luv Is Rage 2.
