Lil Uzi Vert Reveals ‘Eternal Atake’ Short Film

In anticipation of his new album Eternal Atake, Lil Uzi Vert has released a short film.

The two-minute clip, co-directed by Uzi and Gibson Hazard, explores the origins of his persona BabyPluto. It opens with the rapper working in an office before mysterious coordinates pop up on his computer screen, leading him to a field where a UFO crashes and women emerge in purple and blue dresses. Uzi becomes the intergalactic cult’s new leader before being lifted into the spaceship as his song “Futsal Shuffle 2020” plays.

Taking to Twitter, Uzi explained the significance of the purple and blue dresses. “If the Ladies in purple Decides to wear Blue they are Searching For Love And Rebirth so that means they take your soul and you will be stuck at the age that was your best year. BUT Everything and everyone you love will die or disappear as time goes on,” he said.

Uzi also shared additional details about BabyPluto on Twitter, revealing that he’s 25 years old and a virgin. When asked the difference between Uzi and BabyPluto, he responded, “BabyPluto tells the truth.”

Eternal Atake, the follow-up to 2017’s Luv Is Rage 2, has been plagued by delays and even threats of retirement, but it is now expected to arrive on March 13 featuring the Backstreet Boys-sampled single “That Way” and “Futsal Shuffle.”
