The cynics will say the warning signs were in the air for some time. The optimists will look back at Michael Jordan's 2nd run with the Chicago Bulls, in an attempt to convince themselves - that Lil Uzi Vert doesn't mean what he said.
As we reported last night, Lil Uzi Vert declared his intentions to delete all his music from user-based platforms, calling a definitive end to his career as a rapper. A ripple effect of distress (on social media) would soon follow.
What makes his sudden announcement all the more bitter to diehard fans, is that Uzi was seemingly moments away from dropping the long-awaited Eternal Atake project. As the above video goes on to explain, Uzi's production run was marred by difficulty, equal parts caused by pressure from above, pressure his diehards, and even some hijinks of his own doing.
In the wake of his declaration, some fans have even resorted to blaming themselves. And though Memes are generally over-exaggerated in their tone, Social Media's general response has been remorseful. If you don't want Uzi Vert to burn the whole bundle, vote YES. The Naysayers would be kind to go out in silence, while this retirement conundrum sorts itself out. NEVER turn your blind eye on a good promo stunt. Here's what Tweeters had to say.
