Lil Uzi Vert appeared in a video for “Left Right” with Playboi Carti earlier this month and now he’s being sued over a missed concert.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Uzi was supposed to perform in Tuscon, Arizona last October, but failed to come through causing promoters to have to ultimately cancel the show. The “Heavy Metal” artist signed a contract in August to solidify the deal, however when October 20th came around he was nowhere to be found. They are suing him for $600,000 to cover their losses.
The Tuscon Convention Center issued this statement via Twitter the night before Lil Uzi’s show:
This isn’t the first time Lil Uzi Vert has landed himself in trouble for missed appearances as he paid a $30,000 fine back in March, 2017.
The Philly artist has recorded a new album called Eternal Atake, but its release seems uncertain as he’s teased the idea of retirement. He also made a contribution to Lil Pump’s Harverd Dropout on the track “Multi Millionaire” and closed out 2018 with an awkward interview with Nardwuar.
Fans can catch Uzi at Soundset 2019 along with G-Eazy, Lil Wayne, DMX, SZA, Run The Jewels, Buddy, Doja Cat, and others on May 26th.
Hopefully Lil Uzi Vert can sort out his legal problems sooner than later.
