Lil Uzi made his return to music on Thursday (March 28) with his ironically-named track “Free Lil Uzi.”
You may or may not have heard about the “New Patek” rapper announcing his early retirement from the rap game back in January, leaving fans both stunned and heartbroken. He later came out to say the reason for his exit was linked to his label withholding the release of his highly-anticipated sophomore album, Eternal Atake.
However, it seems that Hip-Hop Godfather, Jay Z, has saved the day yet again. On March 25, 2019, Lil Uzi took to Instagram to thank Roc Nation and has reportedly signed a management deal with the company.
Next thing we knew, the Philly native’s “Free Lil Uzi” was not only “leaked” from a brand new Soundcloud account, but fans were also blessed with the visual by Uzi himself on the same day! Atlantic Records did confirm the release was a leak, which would explain the sped up pitch of the record itself. Whether this means we’ll be hearing Eternal Atake anytime soon or not, we can’t be sure. In the meantime, check out the track below, along with the psychedelic video.
