It's unclear whether "Big Bank" will end up on a project from either artist, but it seems this is one of "like 100" unreleased songs that Carti recently revealed he's recorded with Uzi. Like they've done before on songs like "wokeuplikethis*" and "Bankroll," Uzi and Carti complement each other well with similar rock-influenced approaches to rap and liberal use of ad-libs over over spongy, bass-heavy production. Hear "Big Bank" via YouTube above.
Hinting at his large vault of unreleased music, Playboi Carti told The Cruz Show in late July that he and Frank Ocean recently recorded five songs together. "Frank Ocean, he’s the goat," he said. "The last time I worked with him was in New York about a month ago. We did like five songs." Acknowledging Frank's notorious reluctance to release music, Carti then admitted, "You know, it’s Frank, so he move how he move. You never know what he on." Asked where the songs are, Carti answered, "They're with him."
As for Uzi's unreleased music, it appears his next project is finally on the way. After sharing a series of cryptic messages using the words "Eternal" and "Atake" in mid-July, Uzi unveiled mysterious Eternal Atake artwork inspired by the Heaven's Gate cult—a UFO-based religious cult that existed in America for decades before leading to a mass suicide of 39 members in 1997.
The following day, he shared more artwork on Instagram.
Then, over the weekend at Lollapalooza in Chicago, Uzi played a previously unheard song for fans.
We still haven't received word of a release date or any solid information about the album itself, but it seems the arrival of Eternal Atake is fast approaching.
