It seems like Lil Uzi Vert’s label woes may be coming to an end. The Philadelphia rapper—now managed by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation—has come out of his self-imposed retirement to drop a trippy visual for a brand-new song, “Free Uzi.”
In the trippy Qasquiat-directed video, Uzi raps and grooves in a grocery store over the beat from G Herbo’s “Gangway.” On the track, he spits bars that seemingly allude to his recent drama with his old label Generation Now, who Uzi claims was the reason behind his retirement and delay of his still-unreleased sophomore album, Eternal Atake. “I can’t trust none of these n***as, might turn on me / I’m still a millionaire, this shit not hurtin’ me (Woah) / But it’s hurtin’ you (Yeah) / And I know the truth,” he raps.
“Free Uzi” is the rapper’s new song since his 2018 track of “New Patek.” After fake versions of Eternal Atake almost topped the charts on streaming platforms, it’s undeniable that the hype for Uzi’s long-awaited album is at its peak. Let’s hope it actually gets released. In the meantime, check out the MV for “Free Uzi” below:
Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake is one of our most anticipated albums of 2019, so here’s hoping it sees the light of day.
