Following a series of rumors and speculation, Lil Uzi Vert has now dropped a new track, titled “Sasuke.” The song from the Philly rapper serves as the first release following the highly-anticipated drop of Eternal Atake and its deluxe edition Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World 2.

The track is undoubtedly an ode to Sasuke Uchiha, a polarizing key character in popular anime/manga series Naruto. Throughout his music career, Uzi has continuously shared his love of the series, most famously likening his facial piercings to that of Pain’s (Nagato).

Expected to appear on the rumored The Perfect LUV Tape 2, the Outtatown, Brandon Finessin and Oogie Mane produced track sees Lil Uzi Vert liken himself to one of the last surviving members of the Uchiha clan. Most notably Uzi raps “This is not no Naruto, but I chop that like Sasuke,” referencing Sasuke’s cold demeanor and the Sword of Kusanagi, a special chokutō that becomes his personal weapon in the later half of the series.
