Why Did Lil Uzi Vert’s Label Kill His “Habits” Feature For NAV? | Genius News


JACQUES: On March 22nd, Nav dropped his sophomore
studio album, ‘Bad Habits.’ But according to the Canadian MC, the project’s
missing Lil Uzi Vert feature was thanks to a label dispute. Nav and Lil Uzi Vert had collaborated
before on a number of tracks, including 2018’s “Wanted You.” JACQUES: Many had been looking forward to
hearing Uzi spit a verse on the track “Habits.” But Nav took to Instagram with the
hashtag #FreeUzi ahead of the album’s release to let fans know that issues with Vert’s
label heads DJ Drama and Don Cannon stopped it from happening, he said quote: JACQUES: Uzi has been signed to Cannon and
Drama’s label imprint, Generation Now under Atlantic since 2015, but they had released
his early mixtape, ‘The Real Uzi’ back in 2014. Genius reached out to DJ Drama for
comment, who told us via text message that, quote: JACQUES: Although Drama declined to elaborate
on his motivation for denying this latest request, it’s worth noting that this is the
first Uzi and NAV collaboration since Uzi announced he was supposedly “done” with
music and retiring in early 2019. LIL UZI VERT: You think I don’t want to drop music? You just gotta understand, let me tell you something. When people don’t love you, they’ll hold your life if you sign a motherfucking… JACQUES: Prior to this in December 2018, Uzi
spit a few bars about his complicated deal on DC rapper Shabazz PBG’s track, “Shells.” JACQUES: In February of this year, Uzi was
hit with a $600,000 lawsuit after canceling a show back in October 2018. He had to pay 30k for a similar lawsuit in
March 2017. Many have compared Uzi’s current
situation to Lil Wayne’s past disputes with his label, Cash Money, who reportedly delayed
the release of ‘Tha Carter V’ for years until their lawsuit was finally settled in
mid-2018. But despite Lil Uzi’s label complications,
fans are still holding out for his upcoming studio album, ‘Eternal A-TAKE,’ with a
release date that has yet to be finalized. I’m Jacques Morel with Genius News, bringing you the meaning and the knowledge behind the music. Peace!

  1. This is what happens when you sign 360 contracts without reading the fine paint. They own everything you do. Got to get permission to do this and to do that. That’s crazy. Just stay independent. 360 deals are killers to people music career. All labels want to do is sign 360s tho.

  2. Montana of 300 said it best

    “Dont trust record labels, that shit is a trick
    See they’ll make u famous while u make them rich”

  3. Spoiler alert: The question in the title is not answered in the video.
    Answer to video title: Clown ass label just wants clout and money

  4. Wait wait wait…did he just say waiting for eternal atake to release right after he said lil uzi quit music?? Ok I just lost a few brain cells

  5. Dj Drama cleared that he and cannon ain't holding Uzi's album and he can drop it whenever he wants on akademiks post on ig when he uploaded a Uzi x Brittany picture last night so it all depends on Uzi now if he really wanna drop the EA soon or never

  6. It’s obvious isn’t it? They know 100k was nothing compared to what they will make off EA. They are trying to starve us fans from uzi music until the release of EA so that they can make millions of dollars off EA. Dj Drama and Don Cannon some guys that were falling off and they landed uzi and he is their way to climb back to the top. Uzi is the only person signed to Generation Now that is poppin and he wants off the label because they doing him dirty. They forced uzi to retire for a little bit to starve us. It IS about the money.

  7. Pretty sure Uzi is on the low talking to XO he’s been posting them a lot 🤩 it’d be a good move hope he can drop EA before he leaves tho
