Lil Uzi Vert recently dropped his long-awaited Eternal Atake, the follow-up to his acclaimed debut album from 2017, Luv Is Rage 2. While fans scoured the lyrics with much anticipation, finding generational pop culture references from the likes of Yu-Gi-Oh! to G.I. Joe, many were also pleasantly surprised by the diverse production Uzi and his posse of producers utilized. In a new video provided by Bandstand, every sample from Eternal Atake is showcased and analyzed, highlighting Lil Uzi Vert’s love for the unorthodox.

On the album’s fifth track, “You Better Move,” an extremely spacey sample is highlighted, with producer Brandon Finessin utilizing sound effects from Microsoft’s Windows 2000 and XP Space Cadet 3D Pinball game. Uzi references the game in the intro, rapping “I might spin that pinball game” and “Ooh, you better move (that was before I had internet).” For the uptempo hitter “Celebration Station,” Uzi and producers Outtatown and Brandon Finessin highlighted Ariana Grande’s a capella from “raindrops (an angel cried).” For “Chrome Heart Tags,” Chief Keef handed over the beat for his unreleased track “Skkrt Skkrt Skkrt.”

As was evidenced in Eternal Atake’s album trailer, Uzi and producers Harold Harper and Cashmere Cat tap into Travis Scott’s “Way Back” on “Prices.” Other samples included are a heavily-torqued version of 1972’s “Think (About It)” by Lyn Collins on “That Way,” a sample of Tyler, the Creator during his live performance of “Boredom” at Camp Flog Gnaw ’19, a flip on his 2017 hit “XO TOUR LIF3” on “P2,” Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way” on “That Way,” and more.
