After months of relentless teasing, Lil Uzi Vert finally dropped off his first single of the year, “New Patek.” The Dolan Beats-produced record was announced by Don Cannon, who posted a snippet on his Instagram page, since Uzi has been on hiatus.
The Philly artist rapped about his luxurious lifestyle and his sex life over a trap-infused beat. “New Patek on my wrist (gang)/White diamonds them shits hit pink (gang, gang)/Got cold, had to go get a mink (gang)/New finger ring sit like a sink (gang, gang),” Uzi raps during the chorus.
Later in the song, Lil Uzi Vert proves that he’s more than just another lil with his fancy wordplay. “She from the six one nine, Rey Mysterio/I’m the same nigga bustin’ their stereo/Yeah, my boys on the block selling O’s, no Cheerios/I don’t wake up in the morning for cereal/Flip the brick make the whole shit do a aerial/Bang the shit out and make the hoes sing Ariel.”
It’s unclear whether or not “New Patek” would be featured on his forthcoming project or if it’s just a loose single. But we do, Uzi has a new album in the works.
