Lil Uzi Vert’s torrid 2020 run continued on Friday night (April 24) when he released his new record “Sasuke.”
Dedicated to his favorite Naruto character Sasuke, Uzi goes the anime route when paying homage to the beloved ninja. “Yeah, Sasuke, Sasuke, Sasuke, Sasuke, Sasuke, Sasuke/ This is not no Naruto, but I chop that like Sasuke,” he kicks off his verse.
“Sasuke” isn’t just scattered with anime references, as Uzi does find time to speak on his adoration for his usual topics: money, women, and fast cars. “I just ran from 12 in Audi R8, this ain’t stock s–t/I got so much blue, my pocket GS9 (Yeah), I’m on my hot s–t,” Uzi raps.
Uzi’s voluminous output this year includes the release of his sophomore album Eternal Atake and LUV vs. the World 2, the sequel to his 2016 mixtape, which was was packaged as Atake’s deluxe edition. Last month, Eternal Atake rocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 288,000 equivalent album units its opening week.
