Lil Uzi Vert performed at Rolling Loud Miami over the weekend, and just before the end of his set, he told the crowd that he'd finished the final song on his upcoming album Eternal Atake. "I ain't gonna lie, the other night, I finished the last song to the album," Uzi said. "Ain't that about a bitch?" He then proceeded to get the crowd riled up about the anticipated project, then abruptly dropped the mic and walks off. Power move, I guess.

Eternal Atake was officially announced in July 2018 with cover art referencing the cult Heaven's Gate – the surviving members took legal action against the rapper days later. After sharing the song "New Patek," Lil Uzi said in December that the album was finished and coming soon.
Since then, the road to Lil Uzi Vert's sophomore album has gotten increasingly rocky. On January 11, Lil Uzi Vert announced that he was quitting music and had "deleted everything," leading many fans to speculate that Eternal Atake had been erased. A feud began developing in subsequent months between Uzi and DJ Drama and Don Cannon, founders of the Atlantic Records imprint Generation Now, which Uzi is signed to. Uzi accused Cannon and Drama of "disrespect" and delaying the album, but Drama countered, claiming Uzi is allowed to drop Eternal Atake at any time.
Uzi went on to share the song "Free Uzi." The track referenced his label strife and was soon pulled from streaming services. The Atlantic-approved singles "Sanguine Paradise" and "That's A Rack" were shared in April.
