Lil Uzi Vert might be coming back from retirement

Symere Woods, known as Lil Uzi Vert, is an American rapper. He was born and raised in Philadelphia, where he got recognized by his mixtape Luv is Rage that he dropped in 2015.

Once he dropped his mixtape, he got a deal with Atlantic Records, where he signed under DJ Drama’s Generation Now. He then got much more attention from his single Money Longer that he dropped in 2016, which was number 54 on the Billboard Hot 100, and later turned into double platinum.

In 2017, his single XO Tour Lif3 was on his album Luv is Rage 2, which became number one on the Billboard 200, and was certified platinum.

In 2019, Lil Uzi Vert said that he was retiring and was done with music, because of his record label. When Lil Uzi Vert was asked why he wasn’t dropping anything, he said, “I’m tryna drop something.” This led to him signing with a new record label, Roc Nation.

He was working on an album called, Eternal Atake, which was supposed to be his follow up to Luv is Rage 2, which was dropped in 2017. No one knows if he is still going to drop it, as rumors have it that he deleted every song that was part of that album.

On his Instagram story, he posted, “I wanna take the time out to say I thank each and every one of my supporters, but I’m done with music.” He continued by saying, “I deleted everything I wanna be normal. I wanna wake up in 2013.”

The Weekend’s co-manager and XO record boss played four new Lil Uzi Vert songs on his broadcast, which is not known why.

He later went on to perform with Lil Baby, which gave his fans hope that he was coming back into the rap game. But he later stated in his Instagram story, “Still retired only come out for the guys.”

Overall, the unanswered question still remains if Lil Uzi Vert is going to drop his album Eternal Atake, which has received a lot of support from other rappers, such as Quavo and Lil Yachty, as well as fans.
