After releasing ‘Eternal Atake’ in March, Uzi shared an expanded version of the album, featuring a whole second disc and taking the tracklisting to 32 songs.
Reviewing ‘Eternal Atake’, NME wrote: “Inspired by Greek mythology, this sprawling record sees Uzi confirm his status as a modern great whose releases act as timestamps for rap.
“Lil Uzi Vert still has the game in a chokehold,” the review continued. He’s been making masterpieces for five years now; his body of work offers timestamps for different eras of rap music in that period. And here, again, he has made another record that will stay close to the hearts of a generation of rap fans. He is surely our generation’s Lil Wayne.”
