Yesterday, Lil Uzi Vert jumped on Instagram Stories and announced he's quitting the rap game.
"I wanna take the time out to say I thank each and every one of my supports but I'm done with music," he wrote on his Instagram Stories. "I deleted everything. I wanna be normal. I wanna wake up in 2013. You are free."
We'll see if the 24-year-old sticks to his retirement. For now, here's how Twitter is reacting to the loss of Uzi.
Hey peace to Lil Uzi Vert for getting out of the game. I can’t imagine what it’s like to be famous and what that does to your mind and heart. Really talented artist but he knows best for him.— Gene Park (@GenePark) January 12, 2019
“I wanna be normal. I wanna wake up in 2013.” That’s a pretty remarkable statement. pic.twitter.com/yOhgqFW5rj
