Lil Uzi Vert shocked his fans last week when he announced he was done with music and just wanted to be “normal.” Now, the “XO Tour Llif3” mastermind has revealed why he made the brash decision.
In an Instagram video posted over the weekend, Lil Uzi explained his label situation is to blame.
“Y’all talking about drop something,” he said. “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. 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 muthfuckin’ 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. Mutahfucka be right out of jail.”
As Lil Uzi said his goodbyes to his supporters last week, he thanked his loyal fans but claimed he’d deleted the material intended for his long awaited Eternal Atakealbum.
“I wanna take the time out to say I thank each and every one of my supports but I’m done with music,” he said. “I deleted everything I wanna be normal. I wanna wake up in 2013.”
Eternal Atake would serve as Lil Uzi’s follow-up to 2017’s Luv Is Rage 2Only time will tell if the new album will see the light of day.
