Lil Uzi Vert "retired" earlier this year, amid issues with his label, Generation Now.
Then he "unretired" about a week ago -- with new backing from Roc Nation --and dropped the track "Free Uzi".
"Free Uzi" was promptly pulled from Apple and Tidal over sample clearance issues. And now hackers are leaking the tracks for Uzi's long-awaited and much-delayed 'Eternal Atake" album.
Members of the "Groupbuys" Discord server raised $2,500 to buy two unreleased Uzi tracks, and they may be able to purchase more.
Uzi lamented the leaks a few days ago.

"Everytime something leaks you know everything takes longer ... so have fun," he typed.
A rep from Generation said the leaks shouldn't delay the album.
"It doesn’t affect anything at all. When Uzi turns the album in, we will put it out," he claimed.
Ya think Uzi will ever get back on track?
