The Strange Mystery of Lil Uzi Vert’s “Hacked” Instagram Account

Over the last couple days, I spent way too many hours attempting to get a handle on what the hell is going on. Here goes…

Let’s start at the beginning. Just a few days ago, Uzi’s Instagram started acting strange’even for him. It began with a post that looked like it came from one of his friends. The caption reads, ‘Posted from @mean.w phone. Uzi is currently working on the best music in his and your life so he does not have a phone. New music soon. PS this is my phone Uzi had 2 white iPhone X… He will be back in a few weeks maybe he says.’

With a little digging, I saw that @mean.w is ‘Mean,’ the founder of Mean Management, who manages producer Maaly Raw. You might recognize Maaly Raw as the producer of ‘I Do What I Want’ other Uzi gems. So, Mean and Maaly seem to be a part of Uzi’s extended camp.

For the next 24 hours, the account uploaded three different times. All of the photos allude to the fact that Uzi’s Instagram had been hacked. The first caption tries to explain why:

A couple things about this post seem strange. Why would someone who hacked Uzi’s Instagram not change anything? His bio, profile photos, old photos’everything remained perfectly intact. The post also includes a photo of Uzi that perfectly fits the aesthetic of his profile. Why would the 20+ people who allegedly have his info not touch the profile, except to share a photo that Uzi himself would post?

How I Hacked Bloodborne and Found Never-Before

From even a cursory glance at trailers and pre-release footage, it’s clear that Bloodborne went through many significant changes during development, and the alpha files that were built only 9 months prior to the game’s release confirm that. The storyline and characters are dramatically different to what would eventually ship, and as a result, there’s plenty of unused data left behind on the game’s disc. For one, there’s model data for about twenty enemies and characters that would be wholly unfamiliar to anyone who played Bloodborne.

I’ve spent the past three months uncovering parts of Bloodborne that have never been seen, until now.

A YouTuber who goes by the name ‘SanadSk’ actually began trawling through every scrap of data available to find and catalog everything that he was sure never actually appeared in the game (largely based on file names), including voice clips, character models, and unused subtitle tracks. Some of the file names are hard to interpret and while model data is viewable to a degree, initially, nobody was sure what exactly these unused enemies were, or how they would have behaved in Yharnam.

Inspired by that – and with SanadSk’s help – I took Bloodborne’s files and started working on reassembling them back into a playable state. I figured that if I could take these raw files and actually get them to run on a PlayStation 4, I’d be able to make changes to them and explore unseen, off-camera secrets from the game. So, after some time, I eventually managed to figure out how to swap enemies around so that one character was in place of the other, starting with one particularly interesting creature that SanadSk had discovered, called ‘Slug Princess’ (video below).

After that, SanadSk gave me an entire list of ‘character ids’ he had discovered that had unfamiliar content. I found them in the files, injected them into one of the game’s maps, and they each came to life. There were issues, of course. Depending where I injected them, characters would get ‘confused’ by environments that they clearly weren’t built to handle, but with a lot of trial and error almost every cut creature could be revived to some playable degree. There were strange demons that looked like they’d be more at home in Dark Souls, unused variations of key storyline and boss characters, and, mostly, a whole lot of questions about the roles they were meant to play before being cut from the game entirely.
