While it’s extremely unlikely Uzi was in possession of a lone grasp copy of Eternal Atake, his early retirement does put the destiny of the undertaking in jeopardy.

Rapper retirements (exterior of Joe Budden) hardly ever appear to stay, so, for now, followers must simply wait and see the way it performs out.
