Lil Uzi Vert’s “New Patek” Explained | Song Stories


JACQUES: Lil Uzi Vert’s “New Patek”
is an ode to his love of expensive watches and anime. JACQUES: “New Patek” is produced by Dolan
Beats and is the latest song leading up to Uzi’s upcoming album, ‘Eternal Atake.’ The song’s name and lines reference a number
of expensive timepieces. JACQUES: Franck Muller, Rolex, Audemars Piguet and RIichard Mille are all pricey watch brands. In July, Genius broke down hip-hop’s love
for Patek Phillippe. TIA: Patek Phillippe beats out other brands like Audemars Piguet and Rolex as the most popular luxury watch. Plain, iced out, and two-tone Pateks are common among these watch-loving artists. And the Nautilus seems to be the most popular model. JACQUES: These next few lines could be aimed
at Uzi’s rival, Rich The Kid. JACQUES: The two have been involved in a feud
for much of 2018 and it seems to be ongoing. Next up, Lil Uzi’s love for the Japanese
anime Naruto. JACQUES: Many gangs use complex handshakes
as a way of identifying themselves and Uzi uses Naruto’s “hand seals” as a metaphor. Seals are done to summon deadly techniques, and Pain, or Nagato, is one of the show’s main villains. JACQUES: The beat also samples another anime,
2015’s ‘Death Parade.’ JACQUES: Uzi teased “New Patek” back in
June with a dance challenge and when the full song dropped on September 17th, the cover
art featured Uzi reaching through a keyhole, drawn from the infamous Heaven’s Gate cult—and
they aren’t happy about it. JACQUES: But Uzi’s fans are loving “New
Patek” which is climbing the Genius Top Songs chart even though it’s over 5 minutes long. But as comedian Zach Fox put it: JACQUES: If you want to learn more about “New Patek,” check out the song page on Genius.com I’m Jacques Morel with Genius News, bringing you the meaning and the knowledge behind the music. Peace!

  1. I waited so long for that song to come out like all this other rappers making there song shorter uzi makes a 6 min song

    (I was listening to uzi before the xo tour and money longer)

  2. Wow! Genius back at it again with the overanalyzing videos! So in-depth and nice detail!

    No seriously why do they make these kind of videos lol

  3. This is a very complex and deep song, it really does show the peak of rap and rap culture through rich lyricism, smart rhymes and and great bar enders. Truly deep and we have reached the absolute peak.

  4. Did uzi put anyone on to lowkey one of the best anime of all time with death parade if you haven’t watched it give it a try

  5. I’m pretty sure, the line after the Burberry line says I got swag that’s bob lee ima finish you. Or something like that. He’s referencing the main character of the show shooter who is a badass. I’ve checked every lyric page and couldn’t find anyone say this so I’m owning it, well beside uzi saying it himself😂
