Symere Woods, professionally known as Lil Uzi Vert, has finally released his long awaited album Eternal Atake. The album, as advertised, is out of this world. It seems as though Uzi has put the last two and a half years to good use and spent the time devising a project to blow the doors off the worldwide music community.
As a longtime fan of Uzi, the album does not disappoint. The artist’s ability to combine infectious melodies with catchy lyrics makes for a project that is entertaining from start to finish.
Eternal Atake, from the starting gun, is an album chock-full of headbangers. As has been his schtick for his entire career, Uzi brands himself as a rockstar, and if his freshman album, LUV is Rage 2, did not solidify that statement, Eternal Atake surely does.
I listened to the album for the first time in my dorm immediately after I learned of its surprise drop and I found myself smiling the entire time. Everything about it is just so infectious, you can’t help but be happy for the man as he brags about “the famous life,” even if you yourself can-
While one would think that the formula of fast cars, beautiful women and
expensive watches would have gotten old by now, Uzi manages to find ways to take that formula and make it so much better. I just can’t get tired of his new Richard Mille watch or his five million dollar Bugatti.
Lil Uzi Vert has defined trap music over the last five years, and I am here for it. Notable songs include the opening track, “Baby Pluto,” which serves as a taste for the vibe of the rest of the album. Additionally, “Silly Watch” provides an infectious bop that, if performed by any other artist, would make absolutely no sense, but unexplainably, Uzi pulls off.
Finally, my personal favorite: “Prices.” “Prices” features a sample from one of my favorite songs from another artist, Travis Scott. Uzi uses a sample from the song “Way Back” and just makes it so much better. What’s even better is that Uzi just dropped the deluxe version of the album including 14 (yes, 14!) additional songs and serving as a follow-up to 2016’s Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World!
2020 might be off to a rough start, but it seems as if Uzi is doing his best to combat all the upset the world is facing right now.
Eternal Atake (Deluxe) – LUV vs. The World 2 is just as fantastic as its normal version and features unreleased leaked songs that fans have been clamoring over for years.
Chief among these songs is “Myron,” a song leaked in 2018 that was finally mastered and included on the album. The legendary Chief Keef appears on “Bean (Kobe)” and Future also makes an appearance on “Wassup.”
I am shocked by the way this has developed and strongly encourage everyone who likes music in any capacity to give this album a listen.
Very proudly, I give both parts of this album my second 5/5 ever. Fantastic work, Symere Woods.
