Lil Uzi has been trying to get into his ‘rap retirement’ for a minute now, but the industry just won’t let him live! As of Tuesday, Lil Uzi Vert is now facing a $600,000 lawsuit after he cancelled a concert that was supposed to happen in Arizona.
According to Complex, there was a complaint filed by the concert promoters who claimed that Uzi did not hold up his side of the deal to appear at the show scheduled for Oct. 2018.
The promoters have chosen to remain unnamed per the document filed with the Fulton County Superior Court. Of course, Lil Uzi Vert is being held accountable for not showing up for the gig and failing to book another date. However, anyone who held a ticket was refunded their money.
In a late social media post, Uzi talked about how his record label was not allowing him to release his latest album. Therefore, he was announcing his retirement from music, and this lawsuit came at a very rocky time for him!!!
“You think I don’t wanna drop music? You just gotta understand when people don’t love you, they’ll hold your life if you sign a m*****n… Hold that s**t against you,” Uzi said. “And that go for the streets too. You ain’t supposed to sign no paper in the streets because that’s ration’. So why the f**k I even sign this as a deal.”
No one has yet to respond to this case on the behalf of Uzi.
