What! Lil Uzi Vert's been preparing for the album's release throughout 2018. The rapper announced his departure from the rap game via instagram saying "I'm done with music I deleted everything I wanna be normal". He added at the bottom of that post, "You are free."
Vert gained attention after appearing on Migos’ song “Bad and Boujee,” which reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in January 2017. That same year, in June, his song “XO Tour Llif3” peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song went quadruple platinum, according to the Recording Industry Association of America.
