Lil Uzi Vert Lands Big Week On Billboard Charts With “Sanguine Paradise” & "That's A Ra
Lil Uzi Vert has earned a big week in streams with both of his recent singles hitting the Billboard Hot 100 Charts. “Sanguine Paradise” and “That’s A Rack” have both hit the charts coming in at numbers 28 and 76. This is pretty surprising considering there was no major push or promotion behind the singles, but both still ended up charting.
Lil Uzi has been battling his label on releasing new music for some time now, but it seems as though Don Cannon and DJ Drama refuse to let the rapper release anything. Back in 2015 Uzi inked a deal with “Generation Now” a partnership label under Atlantic Records, which is ran by both Don Cannon and Dj Drama.
At first things were going smoothly, Uzi was able to release four mixtapes within a years time period. In 2016 things started to heat up when some issues arose after Lil Uzi complained about album delays, but soon after things died down. Now things are worse than they have ever been between the label and rapper causing more and more of a feud between the two. Uzi's frustration stems from the label delaying the release of his sophomore album “Eternal Atake”. If you are an Uzi fan you know that he has been teasing the release of this project since last July, and now he’s coming up on the one year mark with no official release date in sight. In January the rapper took to social media to announce that he was quitting music altogether saying this: “I wanna take the time out to say I thank each and every one of my supporters but I’m done with music,” Uzi writes. “I deleted everything. I wanna be normal … I wanna wake up in 2013.” Since Roc Nation has stepped up and has negotiated with Lil Uzi on getting him out of his deal with label “Generation Now” and Atlantic Records. Uzi has already been added to Roc Nations list of artist on their official website which would confirm his new home. Now we just have to wait for the dust to settle and hope for a sophomore album release soon. Until then stream Uzi’s two latest singles “Sanguine Paradise” and “That’s A Rack”.
