DJ Drama seems to have started another controversy by claiming that Lil Uzi Vert has replaced Meek Mill after the former’s song was used as the Eagles’ national anthem during the team’s final game.
Lil Uzi ran to the field ahead of the Philadelphia Eagles’ victory on Sunday, and Drama stirred up the mood when he suggested that Meek Mill had previous ties to the team and had played his music at previous games. Replaced by Uzi.
“You did see Lil Uzi Vert lead the Eagles over the 49ers with ‘Just Wanna Rock’. I think it’s fair to say that ‘I Just Wanna Rock’ has replaced – IMHO – ‘Dreams and Nightmares’ as Philadelphia’s new national anthem, becoming the new anthem for the Philadelphia Eagles this year,” DJ Drama said in a statement. An impromptu interview with TMZ.
“I look forward to hearing this song many, many times [throughout] Super Bowl weekend,” he added.
Meek Mill’s 2012 track “Dreams and Nightmare” was used by the Eagles in their 2018 Super Bowl title run and is considered a sports anthem in Philadelphia as it rallies national patriotism in support of a mighty NFL team.
Meek Mill also responded to Drama on Thursday night, seemingly unfazed by the comparison DJ Drama made.
“Intro has been lighting up the world for 10 years! Like rocking the room for years!” he tweeted.
Intro has been lighting up the world for 10 years! Loved rocking the room for years!

Lil Uzi Vert’s “Just Wanna Rock” was released last October under DJ Drama’s Generation Now label and peaked at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. That would explain why he has high hopes for the track.
Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles are one to watch as fans look to the Super Bowl LVII title.
I agree with this message! Great space for both songs ? ? ? ? Philadelphia won? ? https://t.co/wjqgYlwoZa
