It’s been a very long, complicated journey to the release of Lil Uzi Vert’s next album. A year and a half has passed since he teased the title of Eternal Atake, and it’s been nearly a full year since he first claimed the project was finished. At times, it looked like the album would never come out (like the moment he announced his retirement), but there have been signs of progress over the past couple months, culminating with the release of a single and music video for “Futsal Shuffle 2020.” As we wait for Eternal Atake to finally arrive, let’s retrace the many important steps on the road to Uzi’s forthcoming LP.
