Lil Uzi Vert fans are eating this week. In the lead-up to the release of his Red & White EP, the rapper has shared full versions of songs that have long circulated in the snippet universe. "Space Cadet" and "I Know" have both been shared in the past seven days, with another track called "Flex Up" arriving on Wednesday. Notably, it's produced by Maaly Raw, who was responsible for Uzi classics like "Money Longer" and "Do What I Want" before the two artists had a falling out.
It would perhaps be misleading to call the song "new." According to Genius, Lil Uzi previewed the song on Instagram five years ago. If you're a longtime fan of Uzi, you can place the song in the Perfect LUV Tape era just from Uzi's squeakier cadence and the song's blissful vibe (the lead melody sounds like something from Selected Ambient Works). It can get a little bit grating when Lil Uzi fans demand "the old Uzi," but songs like this only compliment the musician that Uzi's become today. Listen below.
