So far, 2018 has suffered from a noticeable lack of new Lil Uzi Vert scriptures. In January, Uzi dropped off the track "200 on My Dash." He also brought a coffin to Colbert for a "Way Life Goes" performance and made other 666-y creative contributions like appearing on Gunna's Drip Season 3 tape. Still, nearly two months into the new year, we still don't have that Paramore-inspired freestyle rock album or a Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World sequel.
Uzi has clearly been busy, as seen by how frequently he hits Instagram with teases of new music. Most recently, he previewed a song that has an apparent change of vibe for Uzi in comparison to his last full-length project, Luv Is Rage 2. According to HotNewHipHop, Uzi shared the clip below on Instagram Monday but later removed it.
Where this song ends up is anyone's guess, as Uzi is known for having an almost mythological amount of unreleased songs in the vault. Judging by the sound of the most recent clip, however, this is likely not that aforementioned rock album that's set to feature input from Marilyn Manson and Tyler Bates.
Last week, we learned Uzi's estimated annual song haul is a whopping 700. During an interview with Ed Lover, producer Don Cannon spoke highly of Uzi's undeniable work ethic. "He's a studio rat," he said. "You would think somebody that is performing and out there as much as he is, he wouldn't be in the room as much. He does not leave that space. He beats me in that space."
The latest studio tease arrives amid the wave of global tranquility stirred by ASAP Ferg's recent declaration that Uzi is "the new Blink-182."
