Removing themselves from social media is nothing new for hip hop artists, and Lil Uzi Vert is the latest one to do so. Today (Jan. 20), fans discovered that the Philadelphia rapper randomly deactivated their Instagram account.
They didn’t give any reason for doing so, but some fans believe that they’re on the verge of dropping new music. One fan wrote, “No. Plz no. I need pink tape,” while another one emphatically replied, “ITS TIMEEEEE.”
Earlier this month, REVOLT reported that the “Just Wanna Rock” rapper revealed that they will be dropping something new in February during a conversation on Reddit. On the social news forum, Uzi responded to a few users who doubted the fact that they were dropping their highly anticipated P!NK Tape.
“S**t ain’t dropping, waiting too long,” the user wrote. The rapper responded by cursing the user out. “B**ch a** n**ga,” they wrote. Although there was no confirmation of the arrival of his forthcoming album, they did give an update on when we can expect to hear new music. “That’s why I’m dropping in February… New s**t, new sound, no mid,” Uzi wrote along with the winking and pink heart emojis.

Some may think the 27-year-old rapper is “mid,” but a lot think otherwise. Their latest single, “Just Wanna Rock,” hit over a million streams, which makes it eligible for Platinum certification. Before that, their single “XO Tour Lif3,” which is 11 times Platinum, went Diamond.
The last time fans got a full body of work from the “Money Longer” artist came last year on July 26 when they released the nine-track EP RED & WHITE. However, the last studio album from them dropped in 2020 with the released of Eternal Atake, which became their second No. 1 Billboard 200.
