Lil Uzi Vert returns to the studio, signs new management deal with Roc Nation

The rapper has been frustrated with his record label situation for quite some time now.

  /  03.26.2019

JAY-Z’s Roc Nation has reportedly helped Lil Uzi Vert get back to focusing on what he does best: make music.

After being embattled with his record label for over a year, even hinting at retirement and taking to social media to voice his frustrations, it appears as though things are finally looking up. As confirmed by Complex, the Philadelphia rapper has signed a management deal with Roc Nation.

Hov’s team at Roc Nation reportedly stepped in to work out some of the legalities behind the scenes, including working out a negotiation that will allow him to drop new music, including his highly anticipated sophomore album, Eternal Atake. The rapper first began vocalizing his frustrations with DJ Drama‘s Generation Now label two years ago, making the accusation that they have been holding his new music hostage and inspiring the rapper to use the hashtag #FreeUzi on social media.

In recent days, Uzi and Drama have traded shots at one another on social media.

“If you want your album 2 drop Number One rule don’t hang with the boss girlfriend,” Uzi wrote. “If you want your album 2 drop be patient let the guilty answer all the blogs. FREE UZI.”

After a couple of jabs, Drama addressed the situation and vocalized that Uzi is free to drop his album at any time.

“Uzi should put out EA [Eternal Atake] tomorrow or any day he wants,” Drama wrote in an Instagram comment. “He has me and [co-CEO Don] Cannon’s total support and blessings to drop it.”

In a new development, Uzi uploaded a preview of a new verse to his Instagram stories, thanking Roc Nation and therefore igniting speculation Hov’s team has gotten involved.

Roc Nation previously stepped in to assist Lil Wayne, when he was in a similar contractual situation with Cash Money. Perhaps Roc Nation’s efforts to assist the rapper in a new managerial role will help facilitate the release of Eternal Atake. Either way, Lil Uzi stepping back into the studio is enough to have fans going into a frenzy on social media.
