Maaly Raw, who has worked with Uzi since 2014, went on to tell XXL, "I guess we're just working on extra songs trying to perfect. ... We'll be in the studio from 2 p.m to 6 a.m every day. We basically sleep there."
When it comes to the Uzi's work ethic, the 22-year-old producer says that Uzi "works fast, real fast. I'll pull up a beat. He'll do it. He'll hop right up and wanna work on the next one right after that. It just be like that all day."
According to Maaly the album is a "classic" and he has assured fans it will be "everything Uzi been doing, he just elevated it, that's all." Atlantic Records has reportedly set a deadline for the "Luv is Rage 2" but it has not yet been confirmed publically.
