Lil Uzi Vert has now dropped a new track, titled “Sasuke.” The song from the Philly rapper serves as the first release following the highly-anticipated drop of Eternal Atake and its deluxe edition Lil Uzi Vert vs. World 2.
The track is undoubtedly an ode to Sasuke Uchiha, a polarizing essential character in popular anime/manga series Naruto. Throughout his music career, Uzi has continuously shared his love of the series, most famously likening his facial piercings to that of Pain’s.

Expected to appear on the rumored The Perfect LUV Tape 2, the Outtatown, Brandon Finessin, and Oogie Mane produced track sees Lil Uzi Vert liken himself to one of the last surviving members of the Uchiha clan. Most notably, Uzi raps, “This is no Naruto, but I chop that like Sasuke,” referencing Sasuke’s cold demeanor and the Sword of Kusanagi. This special chokutō becomes his weapon in the latter half of the series.

Vert has been confusing beef with Playboi Carti sometime now, with fans unable to tell if two are actually beefing or just messing with each other. Over the last few weeks, Vert has teased new music, indicating he would drop his song as soon as Carti released his. And now that Carti has ‘Meh,’ it seems like Vert is keeping his word.’ Meh’ dropped to mostly positive responses, so fans were anticipating some perfect music from Vert. Unfortunately, the song has garnered some slightly adverse reactions.
A Vert fan stated, “Uzi’s always teasing songs for weeks that suck. Sasuke was for sure a miss bruh.” Another fan said, “Sasuke was pretty good, least somebody dropping,” while one user tweeted, “Anybody listens to Sasuke yet? No offense to Uzi, but that sh*t was borderline garbage at some points and mid at best during other parts of it. It’s an L from me, man “@ meh” was better. Try again. After much teasing and trolling, rapper Lil Uzi Vert has dropped his latest song, ‘Sasuke,’ and reactions are a mix of fans loving the new song to some calling it ‘borderline garbage.’
