NLE Choppa reportedly lost a deal with Powerade due to Ja Morant’s suspension after he brandished a gun at a nightclub on social media.

According to TMZ, the rapper’s new song “Mo Up Front” was going to be played in Ja Morant’s Powerade “What 50% More Means” ad campaign for NCAA March Madness.

Powerade has pulled the campaign in the wake of the Morant’s problems. Sources allege Choppa is disappointed in the company’s decision but he is still a fan of Morant and the Grizzlies.

The league officially suspended Morant for eight games due to a video he posted of himself holding a gun in a nightclub in Colorado. He says he wanted an “escape.” Morant has had several brushes with the law.

“The gun wasn’t mine,” Morant told Jalen Rose. “It’s not who I am. I don’t condone any type of violence, but I take full responsibility for my actions. I’ve made a bad mistake. I can see the image that I’ve painted over myself with my recent mistakes. In the future I’m gonna show everybody who Ja really is, what I’m about and change this narrative.”
