On March 28th, 2019, Lil Uzi Vert had “Free Lil Uzi” leaked on SoundCloud, before releasing the music video himself via Instagram. He recently has been the victim of yet another leaked tracked, but this time he isn’t so forgiving.
The Philadelphia rapper has had his song “Money Keep Coming” leaked via a Discord app server called “Groupbuys.” Members of Discord raised $1,250 via CashApp to “purchase” the release of this record, and have put together another $1,250 to unlock a second leak. “Money Keep Coming” is believed to have been on Uzi’s heavily-delayed sophomore album, Eternal Atake. The “Neon Guts” artist took to his Instagram story to express how he feels about all of this.

He explained to fans and hackers alike, “Every time something leak you know everything takes longer… so have fun.” He then followed that statement with a tease, stating that he was going to have records “that you nerds don’t have.”
The person/people releasing music and reaping all of the crowdfunded cash goes by the name of SpirDark, and claims to have folders full of Pro Tools sessions with unreleased Lil Uzi music. This SpirDark group is also believed to be responsible for the hack of Frank Ocean’s Tumblr a while back, however this as yet to be confirmed. The account has since been deleted, but “Money Keep Coming” has already been shared all over Youtube and SoundCloud.
