While fans are still waiting for Lil Uzi’s Eternal Atake, after months, Uzi has just released a new video, “Futsal Shuffle 2020.” Uzi seems to be doing big things this year, as he will also be a significant lineup for Coachella. This years seems like it’s going to be a lit one for the rockstar rapper.
We are still unsure why Uzi has not released the album, but fans seem to think there was conflict with his cover art. His cover art was similar to the Heaven’s Gate logo for the UFO based cult, where 39 members committed suicide in 1997. Uzi deleted the cover art from his Instagram.
“Our attorneys are working with him on direct and clear infringement of trademarks, copyrights and use of logo,” a Heaven’s Gate rep said. “We are also dealing with expressions of ‘Fair Use’, which is cited when this kind of image is displayed. The artist has to be careful to not make full use of the spirit and meaning of the group while altering images of it to make it look like he isn’t infringing. We will see what can be sorted out. It is in the hands of attorneys.”

Over a month ago, Uzi hyped up his fans as he showed off his crazy dance moves, on social media. No doubt, fans are ballistic over Uzi, as he gets crazy on stage. Social media was lit, and were posting their own videos, following Uzi’s dance. Not only did Uzi get the hype going, but fans were suspecting a new album. Perhaps, Uzi was anticipating something.”
It’s been 2 years since double platinum debut album Luv Is Rage 2, with seven-times platinum single “XO Tour Llif3” when Uzi was a part of 2016 XXL Freshman. Uzi has released videos for “That’s a Rack” and “Sanguine Paradise.” Others songs like “Free Uzi” and the leaked records “Everything Lit” and “Introvert.”
Whatever Uzi does, it’s always a surprise, and out of the ordinary. In May 2019, Lil Uzi did an interview, as he fled from the scene, and took off, while Nardwuar was chasing him. Or, perhaps he’ll show up at a school bus of kids and say, “It’s my 3rd day. Whether it’s an album or random surprise, we can’t get enough of the one and only, Lil Uzi Vert.
