Lil Uzi Vert should be kept away from the hammer and chisel toolkit for as long as his perfectionism runs its course.
Word around town is that Lil Uzi Vert is somewhat of a perfectionist. One of the contributors to the long-anticipatedEternal Atake album says that part of the holdup revolves around Uzi's obsessive personality, causing him to re-do the project a whopping 11 times and counting. The person closest to the situation was Finesse, the manager of Lil Uzi Vert's Working on Dying collective. He was the one to pass the message along to Genius, who wasted no time in branding Uzi a weird but calculated methodologist.

"[Uzi's] one of the most creative people that I've ever met in my life, and that's tough man," Finesse told Genius of Uzi's unmitigated creative process. "It's tough because he's such a perfectionist that we've probably had 11 versions of Eternal Atake. He records every day. But he's not gonna put it out until he feels like everyone is to his liking, and sometimes that pace is gonna be slower than what his fans like. So we get it. We understand, but equally speaking he's working on the best music of his life. That's gonna take time."
This past week Uzi released two songs that strongly hinted towards the project seeing light in the coming days. With the modern technology at their disposal, "Sanguine Paradise" and "That's A Rack" were literally time-released to coincide with one another.
