Rappers Lil Uzi Vert and Future drop 2 tracks, 'Patek' and 'Over Your Head', thrilled fans demand album soon
The duo had previously collaborated on the song 'All Bad' on Future's 'High Off Life' album, and some fans are expecting a full-blown joint mixtape to release shortly
Rappers Lil Uzi Vert and Future have teamed up for two new collaborations — the tracks 'Patek' and 'Over Your Head', which dropped on July 31, which is also Uzi Vert's birthday. Besides these two new tracks, we also have the pair starring in a couple of intriguing visuals directed by Hype Williams, which look like they are clips from upcoming music videos or even a cinematic feature starring the duo.
Both hip-hop stars are at the top of their rap games currently and had previously collaborated on the song 'All Bad' on Future's 'High Off Life' album this year. Other collaborations in the past include tracks like 'Too Much Sauce' and 'Seven Million', which both dropped in 2016. So it makes sense that they'd be teaming up for a new venture that some fans are expecting to culminate in a full-blown mixtape that will release shortly.
Another song from that potential album, 'Iced Out', had been previewed by Future on his Instagram Story back in May. Both artistes had previously teased their upcoming collaboration on Twitter in the past couple weeks, with Future tweeting a picture of the two rappers on July 21, along with the caption "#NewProfilePic".
Following up on this, Future had tweeted a teaser preview of a video clip directed by Hype Williams on July 22. The cinematic video showed Lil Uzi Vert and Future having a conversation at a laundromat, where they were discussing the Covid-19 pandemic, a potential money-laundering scheme which would fly over most people's heads and a massive yacht that they had in Saint-Tropez. This was followed by the revelation at the end of the clip that something would be dropping on July 31.
Soon after that, Future had tweeted on July 27, "Buy her a Patek if u love her," which was promptly retweeted by Lil Uzi Vert. It should be noted that Lil Uzi Vert already had a song out called 'New Patek', which dropped in 2018, while Future has a song called 'Patek Water', which was part of the 2017 'Super Slimey' mixtape with Young Thug. All these hints were clues for fans that they could expect something huge in the works.

Future also tweeted out a second visual on the night of July 31 that had been directed by Hype Williams. This short clip showed the two rappers in a liquor store, as they discussed taking their fashion and accessories to a whole other level. Talking up their new mindstate, they declared they're were raising the bar to a "Patek level," referring to the Swiss luxury watch brand, Patek Philippe.
And now the songs are finally here, with most fans already expecting something bigger to pop in the next few weeks. The song 'Patek' has been produced by Starboy & Brandon Finessin, and had actually been previewed in a DJ Akademiks live-stream two days ago. The braggadocious and autotuned track talks about everything from alligator shoes to multi-hued diamonds, and of course, luxury brands like Patek Philippe, Louis Philippe, Mercedes-Maybach, and Bentley Bentayga. You can check out the full track here.
Meanwhile, the other track, 'Over Your Head', which was produced by D Hill, talks about a girl who the narrator seemingly can't see eye to eye with — "Everything I said went right over your head." The girl in question was apparently being disingenuous in the past, and now the rapper is fed up with her games. This means her texts are now being left "on read," while the narrator hooks up with her "best friend instead." Of course, there are plenty more references to luxury brands like Chanel, Christian Louboutins and Ferraris, as the rappers wax lyrical on their stacks of money and playboy lifestyles. You can check that track out below.
Fans were obviously thrilled to see this popular tag-team hook up again, with one follower declaring, "A whole project with them would go harder than Future x Drake."

A thrilled admirer also declared, "Y'all didn't miss," and there are no surprises there.

One enthusiastic fan also begged them to release a full album soon, saying "Drop the album please!"

We'll have to wait and see what unfolds in the coming days because Future and Lil Uzi Vert definitely have more tracks in the pipeline.
