Lil Uzi Vert who signed to Atlantic in 2014, has disclosed that he is quitting music for good via an Instagram story he shared on Friday evening.
The Philadelphia rapper who has self-released two projects earlier, wrote on Instagram;
“I wanna take the time out to say I thank each and every one of my supports, but I’m done with music,” he wrote on the post. “I deleted everything. I wanna be normal… I wanna wake up in 2013.”
Fans who reacted to Lil Uzi Vert’s claim of quitting music, expressed fears that the rapper might have literally deleted files for his second studio album, “Eternal Awake,” which he’s been teasing for months and had claimed was near completion.
The post sparked a controversy of being real or a publicity stunt, as representatives for his label, Atlantic Records, could not immediately be reached for comment.
