Ja Morantís Suspension For Gun Incident Reportedly Makes NLE Choppa Lose Powerade Deal
 

 

Unfortunately, NLE Choppaís losses out on a major deal amid Ja Morantís nightclub gun controversy.

TMZ reports that the rapperís new song ďMo Up FrontĒ was set to lead Ja Morantís Powerade ďWhat 50% More MeansĒ ad campaign for NCAA March Madness.

In the wake of the Morant gun incident, the sports drink company scraped the campaign, costing the rising artist national exposure.

Sources tell the outlet that the MC is disappointed in the companyís decision. But he is still a fan of Morant and the Grizzlies. Last year, Choppa walked out the team while performing, ďShotta Flow.Ē

Outside of music, Choppa is known for his dedication to giving back to his community. He is set to partake in a celebrity basketball game in support of raising money for St. Judes Hospital.

As for Morant, he is currently serving an eight-game suspension without pay for brandishing a gun on his social media live story earlier this month. The video sparked an uprise throughout the NBA.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement per the a*sociated Press,
ďJaís conduct was irresponsible, reckless, and potentially very dangerous. It also has serious consequences given his enormous following and influence, particularly among young fans who look up to him.Ē

ďJa has also made it clear to me that he has learned from this incident and that he understands his obligations and responsibility to the Memphis Grizzlies and the broader NBA community extend well beyond his play on the court.Ē

On Wednesday, Morant sat down with ESPN sport analyst Jalen Rose to publicly apologize for the ignorance of his actions. ďItís not who I am,Ē Morant stated. ďI donít condone it or any type of violence, but I take full responsibility [for] my actions. I made a bad mistake.Ē

ďI can see the image that I painted over myself with my recent mistakes. But in the future, Iím going to show everybody who Ja really is, what Iím about and change this narrative that everybody got.Ē

We live in an age of selective outrage and without the need for logical analysis. The worst part is that combination allows for individuals to be demonized and ostracized at any given moment, for any reason.

He was at the Lakers game a few weeks ago, I ain't know who he was so I took his pic and sent to my folks, they knew. I knew he was a rapper based on attire but, it was grown grey head men Going up to dude for a photo. I was just SMH...


At any rate, I love the M and the Grizzlies, we Big Memphis hoe but mane, Memphis just let stuff git too damn rachet mane, for real, listen to the lyrics, and its kids & old folks at the game! And they walk out to that, the world is insane. Ban all murder, drugs, and s*x music.
