Over the past few days, Lil Uzi Vert’s Instagram account has been updated with new posts by supposedly everyone other than the rapper himself. Now, a new, heavy-hitting track titled "Rich Forever" has surfaced on his official SoundCloud account, claiming to be a "leak" from the rapper.

An Instagram post from April 8 implied that the 23-year-old was without his phone and taking a hiatus from social media but would return in a few weeks. According to the caption, it was a friend posting on his behalf.

Now, it appears that he may have been hacked, according to a caption from Wednesday that claims "like 20 people has to have Uzi Instagram." The poster -- who fans speculate might be Uzi himself -- went on to say that the artist’s login information to both Instagram and iCloud were found in the bathroom of a massage parlor.

Whoever posted on Thursday (April 12) threatened to leak new music just hours before the new song appeared on SoundCloud.

The leaked track has over 100,000 listens as of press time. The caption for the SoundCloud upload s simply: "hahahahahahahahhahahahaa!" Listen to the "leaked" song below before it's pulled off SoundCloud -- or not.
