NLE Choppa clears the air on the latest rumours.
Accordingly TMZ, Choppa’s latest single, “Mo Up Front,” was set to run in a commercial for Powerade’s “What 50% More Means” campaign, which featured heavily on Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies. The commercials reportedly aired during the NCAA March Madness.
However, the commercial was reportedly dropped after Morant shared a video of him brandishing a gun live on Instagram.
