Lil Uzi Vert – Eternal Atake
Released: 6 March 2020
FINALLY. After months of disputes with DJ Drama and his label, Lil Uzi Vert finally got the green light to release the long-awaited and highly-anticipated Eternal Atake LP.
However, what is supposed to be a 3 Part/Split-Personality themed album (divided into 3 sections – Baby Pluto, Renji, and Lil Uzi Vert)- sounds like a random assortment of compiled songs, similar to Lil Wayne’s “Funeral” LP, loosely held together by transitions.
Eternal Atake dropped early on a Friday morning. Do you remember what you were doing when it dropped?
★★1/2: Average; fans of the artist will find value here.
