Taking to Instagram Stories on Friday (Jan. 11), Uzi thanked his fans for their support before making the surprise announcement. "I deleted everything. I wanna be normal..."
The 24-year-old rapper was expected to release his sophomore studio album, Eternal Atake, sometime in 2019 and had been teasing the project for a minute, sharing singles, snippets and visuals. Lil Uzi Vert announced on Instagram that he's "done with music". "I WANNA WAKE UP IN 2013", read the post's message.
He added, "Thank you love you" and "You are free".

We try to be stable in everything. "We realised that last season in Carabao Cup, we saw how complicated they are", he said. You have to be quicker and more efficient.
Uzi fans, it's been quite the struggle with the troubled Philly rapper.
In 2014, the Philadelphia rapper signed to Atlantic Records, having previously self-released two earlier projects. Past year him and Don Cannon announced we'd be getting his forthcoming album Eternal Atake within time, likely before the end of 2018.
His 2017 debut album "Luv Is Rage 2" charted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and gave the world the dark and catchy single "XO Tour Llif3". What's unclear is whether Lil Uzi is serious or whether this is a publicity stunt. 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.
