On Saturday, Nav took to his Instagram story to post a photo of himself beside Uzi, writing, “If @liluzivert quit im out too.” Later, Uzi reposted the image to his own IG story, with the caption, “You always got my back.”
On Friday night, Lil Uzi Vert astounded fans when he announced his decision to step away from music.
“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 on Instagram Stories. “I deleted everything. I wanna be normal ... I wanna wake up in 2013. You are free.”
Uzi was expected to release his sophomore studio album, Eternal Atake sometime in 2019. The Philly rapper had been teasing the project for a while, sharing singles, snippets, and controversial visuals. During a concert in early December, Uzi told the crowd that the much-anticipated album was finally completed, though he didn't share an expected release date.
Recently, Uzi might have alluded to his dissatisfaction with his career. In his feature on Shabazz PBG's “Shells,” which arrived before the new year, Uzi raps, “Tryna figure out how I'm gon' get out my deal.”
