Popular rapper Lil Uzi Vert has taken to his fans to decide on the cover art for highly anticipated upcoming album, Eternal Atake, almost two years since he first started teasing the album.

Uzi’s second studio album since 2017’s Luv is Rage 2 has been a huge topic for hip-hop fans in recent years, with a lot of controversy surrounding Uzi, the album, and his label allegedly withholding its release.

Now, though, it appears the project is finally coming, with a March 13 release date the expectation among fans after he teased a two-week wait on February 28 while on Instagram Live.

The wait for Eternal Atake has been a long one for fans.

Late on March 2, Uzi said he was going to let his fans pick the cover art, with three potential options that he released intermittently over the next day.

Finally, on March 3, he tweeted a poll simply asking for fans to pick which of the three pieces of art they prefer, with each one wildly different from one another and offering completely separate visual aesthetics to accompany the new music.

Following a multitude of tweets with fans talking about what to expect from his new album, Uzi said “Album Cover for Eternal Atake… You Pick… Go Now,” following up with an image of each potential cover.

The first features multi-layered diamonds and jewels in a bright yellow/orange hue, a fairly psychedelic image that you might expect from an Uzi album.

The second is a little more plain, with three people staring at Earth from a planet in outer space, while the third is simply a crowd holding up signs about Uzi and his new alias, Baby Pluto.

After the poll had ended, options two and three were split 62% to 32%, after which Uzi conducted another poll to decide which will be the album cover and which will be on the tracklist side. Option two was eventually picked as the winner, with option three occupying the reverse side of the physical album.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
