It seems like Lil Uzi Vert just can’t catch a break.
Uzi fans have been waiting for new music and as soon as their wish was granted, it was quickly taken away. It seemed like the “XO TOUR Llif3” rapper had returned from his retirement, dropping his newest track “Free Uzi,” his first song since signing with Roc Nation. Fans even thought this meant there might be more good news about his long awaited project Eternal Atake. Unfortunately, there’s no new news about the album and even worse, “Free Uzi” has disappeared from all streaming platforms.
Much to everyone else’s surprise, TMZ has reported that DJ Drama and Don Cannon actually have nothing to do with the matter. The actual issue is, for the song, Uzi used a old G Herbo beat called “Gangway” and it seems that there were some clearance issues. So, because of that, he’s not able to make any money off of “Free Uzi,” at least for now. Hopefully it was just a misunderstanding and he’ll be able to sort this out soon. Until then, check out the video below:
