‘Luv Is Rage 2’ ? Are we ready for it?

If you’re in my car and I’m controlling my auxiliary, you’ll likely hear songs from Lil Uzi Vert’s Luv is Rage, The Perfect LUV Tape, Lil Uzi Vert Vs. The World, and the joint-project with Gucci Mane. There’s always bangers on those project that I enjoy. A rapper? I always viewed Uzi as just a person expressing himself. An artist, nothing more. By doing this, I was able to accept his music for what it was, nothing more. After a while, less became more and more became too much. The line must be drawn.

Uzi is not the only artist I wish would slow down on the output of material, but he’s at the top.

After the release of The Perfect LUV Tape, I tapped out. I never want to consume too much music from artists I listen to often. The guy dropped four mixtapes within a 13-month span. None seemed to top the work that was done on Lil Uzi Vert Vs. The World. “Money Longer” and “You Was Right” had a strong run on the Billboard charts.

I’m tapped out and I CAN wait for Uzi’s next run in music. Now that Future has stepped off the scene (to a degree), I’m missing his music. He gave us a hand full of tracks but nothing more came out of it, like a project or anything. When artists like J. Cole release one body of work and it’s all we have for some time, appreciation sinks in. I sit with it much longer and I anotate my way through each listen. I wish a lot of artists had the same mentality.

Despite Uzi’s highly critiqued verse on “Bad and Boujee,” the song went no. 1 on the charts and gave Migos their first no. 1 single, ultimately leading to their first no. 1 album in Culture.

I’m sure many will think “why is he taking time out of his day to write about Lil Uzi Vert?” Because I am a fan of his work. However, I don’t want his work to be diluted due to frequent releases. With that being said, I’m hoping we have some time before Luv Is Rage 2 releases.
