Is Lil Uzi Vert’s 'Eternal Atake' Cover Art Inspired By A Suicidal Cult?

It appears the Philadelphia rapper is embracing an infamous cultist.

(AllHipHop News) Lil Uzi Vert raised some eyebrows when he told the crowd at the 2018 Wireless Festival that they were going to hell with him. Things look to be getting even weirder with the cover for Uzi's upcoming Eternal Atake.

DJ Akademiks pointed out that the Eternal Atake artwork is actually a reference to a religious cult. In 1997, Heaven's Gate members committed mass suicide under the belief they would catch a ride on an alien spacecraft following the Comet Hale–Bopp.

Uzi even changed his IG profile photo to feature a picture of Heaven's Gate leader Marshall Applewhite. The former U.S. Army serviceman, along with Bonnie Lu Nettles, built a following before convincing the converts to take their own lives.

This is not the first time Lil Uzi Vert was associated with mysticism, the occult, or devil worshiping imagery. Offset of Migos called out his "Bad and Boujee" collaborator for wearing an upside-down cross, and some listeners even believe the name Lil Uzi Vert is a play on Lucifer.
