Mercurial Philly artist Lil Uzi Vert has had his creative differences with his label Atlantic Records. Last December, he tweeted that he “sold out,” and apparently wishes to create music that isn’t targeting the charts. At the time he was riding the wave of “XO Tour Llif3,” a song that he actually had to leak himself to turn into the ubiquitous hit it was last summer.
Recently, Uzi has been either involved or oblivious to one of the most unique social media stunts in recent memory. His account has posted a range of posts with strange captions, including one that says he left his Instagram login info on a “brothel wall.” The fact that the hack has been going on for over a day leads me to believe he’s orchestrating it, but either way, we at least have some new music from the circumstance.
Hey Uzi Told me to tell y’all He Really doesn’t exist and neither does you in the next person eyes. Uzi said if you think of a notepad and pen it will appear in days write “Hello” on the paper lose it on purpose and you will see the word “Goodbye” everywhere Forever unless you have more paper . He also said put these emoji 🤯🍄. This Nigga Weird but he my mans so Fuck it .
Been lookin threw Uzi messages. I feel bad for the kid he has so many platinum plaques and charting songs but for some reason he is still Broke. I’ve been going through his messages and he has some good songs in this thing it’s ashamed that his bosses won’t let him put any content out . Honestly I care nothing about the guy but I hate when people get took advantage of . I typed SoundCloud In Uzi messages and every password came up . Thank me later Uzi I’m leakin songs for your fans 💾.
The person running his account claimed they somehow got his SoundCloud password from his Instagram DMs and subsequently leaked a song called “Rich Forever Leaked” to his official SoundCloud page with a simple “hahahahahahahahhahahahaa!” explanation. The song showcases Uzi raging over an intense, apocalyptic soundscape. “They won’t play this on your FM” he rhymes passionately, channeling frequent collaborator G Herbo with his flow.
You can stream “Rich Forever Leaked” below and stay tuned to a resolution to his Instagram drama.
