Ja Morant’s gun video causes NLE Choppa to lose Powerade ad
Sources with direct information reported to TMZ Hip Hop that NLE Choppa’s latest song, “Mo Up Front,” will be included in Ja Morant and Powerade’s campaign titled “What 50% More Means.”
Additionally, the ad was supposed to highlight the NCAA’s March Madness tournament.
However, Joppa’s plans were dashed when Ja Morant’s infamous video showed him flashing a gun in front of the camera. Additionally, Morant is currently serving an eight-game suspension from the NBA.
Therefore, Choppa was kicked out of the commercial for the new song due to the above reasons.
Choppa is reportedly a fan of Ja Morant despite missing out on national exposure. He also has a good relationship with his hometown Grizzlies.
Meanwhile, Choppa is reportedly set to play in the team’s celebrity basketball game. The competition is scheduled for March 20 and will benefit St. Jude Hospital.
