Lil Uzi Vert is projected to dominate the Billboard 200 chart for a second straight week with Eternal Atake/LUV vs. The World 2, a deluxe version of Eternal Atake, which debuted at No. 1 just last week.
It has been an impressive run on the charts for Uzi, 25, who was told by Ebro during his HOT 97 interview three years ago that he would be a struggling artist by the age of 27 or 28. Skip ahead to the 13-minute mark to hear Ebro deliver his now incorrect prediction of Vert's career trajectory.
On the contrary, Uzi's popularity has never been greater, and while he could easily take a victory lap, and shove it in Ebro's face now, Uzi is taking the high road...sorta.
Uzi is asking his fans to stop hating on Ebro now, emphatically claiming that his one-time doubter is "old" and "don't know no better."
Uzi's mea culpa comes after Ebro took to Twitter to admit that he has been proven wrong, and welcomes other artists to do the same.
Even though things appear to be good with Ebro now, Uzi still had some things to get off his chest, turning his attention to old rappers bragging about their hits or how much money they have.
And if you think luck had anything to do with Uzi's success on the charts, he has a message for you, too.
Uzi warned that he has more heat on the way, but he's going to hold off and wait for someone to drop their project.
Someone suspected he was talking about Jack Harlow, an artist on DJ Drama and Don Cannon's Generation Now label. It didn't seem all that ridiculous of an assumption since Uzi did release Eternal Atake/LUV vs. The World 2 the same day as Harlow's latest project Sweet Action. But Uzi struck down that theory.
