Fans immediately took to social media to register their distress that the rapper might literally have deleted files for his second studio album, "Eternal Awake", which he's been teasing for months and had claimed was near completion. Don Cannon even said that we'd be getting it before the year ends which was clearly false.
Lil Uzi also got a solo Grammy nod past year for Best New Artist, losing out to Alessia Cara.
In 2003, Jay Z announced he was retiring after the release of The Black Album - but three years later, he was back with Kingdom Come, admitting he'd had the worst retirement of all time.
Lil Uzi Vert is stepping away from the spotlight. "I deleted everything. I wanna be normal.I wanna wake up in 2013". He also wrote, "Thank you love you".
"You are free", Uzi added in text at the bottom of his post. Following the release of Luv Is Rage 2, Uzi's been vocal about his issues with his record label. With the support of Atlantic, Uzi rose to fame with his "Luv is Rage" mixtape and subsequent "Lil Uzi Vert vs".
Hopefully, Uzi isn't actually serious about quitting music and we could expect the rapper's project to drop sometime this quarter.
