Fans lost their collective minds in the comment section, asking Uzi to drop the tape but the Philly rapper only cracked a smile in response to the commotion.
Uzi dropped his much-delayed second studio album, Eternal Atake, in March 2020. The album earned over 400 million streams in its first week and topped the Billboard 200 chart on two separate occasions after Uzi unleashed the deluxe edition a week after Eternal Atake‘s initial release.
