Lil Uzi Vert: 'I'm Done With Music'
Lil Uzi Vert fans were reeling this weekend from news that the rapper announced he is calling quits.
“I wanna take the time out to say I thank each and every one of my supports, but I’m done with music,” he wrote in an Instagram Story on Friday. “I deleted everything. I wanna be normal… I wanna wake up in 2013.”
So far, there's been no follow-up from Lil Uzi and no comment from his reps or record label.
The 24-year-old, whose real name is Symere Woods, signed his record deal in 2014 and released his debut studio album, Luv is Rage 2 in 2017.
His sophomore album, Eternal Awake, was expected some time this year. Last month, Lil Uzi told fans the album was finished.
“Sober 2 day I have been shaking," he tweeted in November 2017, shortly after Lil Peep died of a drug overdose. “I have been cursing my love ones out and fighting. In the studio with no thoughts in my head. Teeth biting down because I just wanna be angry at something ... Maybe I will just smoke weed tonight.”
Following the murder of XXXTentacion last June, Lil Uzi pledged to raise money for the rapper’s family. “I want to start a fund/foundation to make sure his child and family are well taken care of not just temporary but for life,” he tweeted.
