On Friday, Lil Uzi Vert surprised fans with a “Sasuke,” a brand new track inspired by Sasuke Uchiha, a character in the popular anime/manga franchise Naruto, which Uzi is an avid fan of.
“This is not no Naruto, but I chop that like Sasuke,” Uzi raps over the Outtatown, Brandon Finessin, and Oogie Mane track.
Despite much social media chatter and rumors of a beef between him and Playboi Carti, Uzi denied that the song is a shot at his frenemy, who he occasionally exchanges subliminal shots with from time to time.
“I’m not dissing him …. promise,” he told a fan.
“Sasuke,” is said to make an appearance on Uzi’s rumored forthcoming The Perfect LUV Tape 2, which would follow his two back-to-back projects, the chart-topping Eternal Atake and the deluxe edition, LUV vs. The World 2.
