Over the weekend, a previously unreleased Lil Uzi Vert and Gunna collab titled ".223" surfaced. The first verse sees Uzi shouting out Rick Owens, Lenny Kravitz, and Girls Next Door stars Kristina and Karissa Shannon. Gunna, meanwhile, details "flawless baguettes" and the joys of driving Martian-esque vehicles in the chorus and gives DJ Carnage a shout in the second verse.
The origin of the track, produced by 100mph, is unknown. Will it end up on a new Gunna project? Is it part of Uzi's increasingly compelling marketing campaign surrounding his Luv Is Rage 2 follow-up? There's currently no way of knowing, but do some satan hailing and check out the surfaced track via the YouTube link up top.
Last month, Uzi seemingly teased a new project titled Eternal Atake by Instagramming what appeared to be cover art. As those well-versed on cults quickly noticed, the art was heavily inspired by the San Diego-based Heaven's Gate cult's infamous early internet imagery. The cult's tagline had been amended to name Luv, Rage, and Uzi instead of Ti, Do, and someone named Jesus. The Instagram post, however, has since been removed.
At the top of the month, surviving Heaven's Gate cult members told Genius that Uzi's adaptation of "our copyrights and trademarks" without permission had been "taken up" with their legal team.
Gunna dropped his excellent Drip Season 3 tape, featuring the Uzi collab "At the Hotel," back in February. Drip Harder, his upcoming project with Lil Baby, is expected soon.
