Both songs have production credits from the veteran producer, Oogie Mane, with the song “Sanguine Paradise” containing troops from a former club banger “Do It” by Mykko Montana and K.Camp.
Uzi has long since battled with his label Generation Now, which some believed lead to his retirement announcement in January. A major issue between Uzi and the label stem from his 2017 smash hit “XO Tour Life”, where Uzi received a fraction of the 4.5 million dollars of profit from the song. Uzi even engaged in a back and forth with label executive DJ Drama over whom young rappers should sign too.
This is the first music from the Philadelphia rapper first time in 2019; however, there is no word yet on any future project.
