“I wanna take the time out to say I thank each and every one of my supporters but I’m done with Music,” he wrote on Instagram Stories. “I deleted everything. I wanna be normal … I wanna wake up in 2013. You are free.”

In 2018, Uzi was expected to drop the follow up to Luv Is Rage 2 in Eternal Atake but it never materialized. The Philly rapper with hits such as “Do What I Want,” “XO TOUR Lif3,” and “Do What I Want” had been teasing the album throughout the year with singles, snippets and controversial videos where he alleged to have worshipped Satan. In December, he told a crowd that the album was finally done, without necessarily telling people what the release date was.

Fans obviously were taken aback at Uzi saying he was stepping away from the music on social media.

Again, you never know with rap retirements. We’ll see if Uzi sticks to what he’s saying.
