Lil Uzi Vert Says He’s ‘Done With Music’

The 24-year-old rapper surprised fans on Friday when he announced via Instagram Stories that he's stepping away from music.

While it remains to be seen if Lil Uzi Vert is really quitting music or if he's just going through something and venting, or if this is all a publicity stunt to promote his next album ... it looks like we'll just have to wait and see what happens next. "I deleted everything. I wanna be normal..." "I wanna wake up in 2013".

Lil Uzi - real name Symere Woods - added messages reading "You are free" and "Thank you love you".

The Philly rapper had been teasing the project throughout 2018.

Uzi's record label, Atlantic Records, has yet to address his retirement announcement. I'm finally done with that joint'. With the Atlantic machine behind him, Uzi was catapulted from local legend to national fame with his Luv is Rage mixtape and subsequent "Lil Uzi Vert vs". During his "Lil Uzi Vert & Friends" concert in his hometown last month, Uzi announced that the album was finished and pending release.

His first studio album Luv Is Rage 2 was released in 2017, and spawned the hit single XO Tour Llif3, which peaked at number 7 on the Billboard charts.

Lil Uzi also got a solo Grammy nod past year for Best New Artist, losing out to Alessia Cara. As most pop fans recall, superstar musicians Jay-Z, Justin Bieber and others have also made sudden claims about retiring from the game only to come out with new material soon thereafter.
