Lil Uzi Vert’s much-anticipated album, Luv Is Rage 2, still (can we italicize the word "still" any harder than that?) hasn’t dropped, despite a growing demand for the project. But the good thing for Uzi fans is that there hasn’t been a lack of new Uzi music so far this summer.
In late June, Uzi provided his loyal followers with a preview of Luv Is Rage 2 when he sensed that they were growing impatient with him for not releasing the album sooner. A few weeks later, two new Uzi tracks called "Alone Time" and "Repercussion" surfaced, though it’s still unclear whether or not they will end up appearing on Luv Is Rage 2. And over the weekend, five (!!!) new Uzi songs premiered on DJ Drama and DJ Don Cannon’s Gangsta Grillz show on SiriusXM.
The titles for the songs haven’t been confirmed, but a SoundCloud user snatched up all five of them and packaged them together under the titles, "Walking Around With a Bank," "Bag" (which features Young Thug), "Let You Know," "Loaded," and "Pet." You can listen to them below:
Initially, the belief was that the five songs were cuts from Luv Is Rage 2, with many fans assuming it meant the album was probably going to drop sooner than later. But early Monday morning, Uzi took to Twitter to reveal that the songs will not appear on the project. He said he’s going to be "coming way harder den dat" on the album in reference to the new songs:
In addition to the five songs that premiered on Shade 45, Uzi also performed a new song called "I Got The Work" during his set at the Flyover Festival in Bonner Springs, Kansas over the weekend. You can watch him perform it here:
