After previewing the track, Uzi Vert informed fans on his IG Live (via Reddit) that he’s still not recording any new music, but he has a stash of old songs that he wouldn’t mind releasing to the public.
“But I wish they let me feed y’all, they let me just…tell me to come on, tell them me to come on,” he said. “Tell them to come on let me feed y’all with the old stuff.”
“I don’t music no more but y’all can have this old stuff,” he continued. “I mean it’s gonna be new to y’all, I mean, y’all gonna say it’s new shit.”
Lil Uzi Vert is only two months in his self-imposed retirement. The 24-year-old rapper made the surprise announcement on Instagram back in January.
“I wanna take the time out to say I thank each and every one of my supporters but I’m done with music,” he wrote with a photo of his Gucci socks on his Instagram Story. “I deleted everything. I wanna be normal…I wanna wake up in 2013.”
Uzi Vert had initially planned to release his Eternal Atake album, but there’s no word if the project’s release is postponed indefinitely.
Despite his retirement, Uzi Vert joined Meek Mill during his New York stop of his Motivation Tour on Tuesday (March 12) and performed his hit song “XO Tour Lif3.”
Before signing off his IG Live, Uzi Vert told his viewers that he still in control of what he wants to do musically.
“I still do what I want and we are rocking,” he said.
