Lil Uzi Vert isn’t rolling with DJ Drama’s crowning of “Just Wanna Rock” as the new Philly anthem. Uzi stepped into The Shade Room and said it is too early to make that statement.

“I don’t think so,” Lil Uzi told TSR. “That song like been around for a very long time, and that song is still hitting exactly the same way. I’m just gonna have to see, you know, in a couple of years or a decade or whatever.”

Ahead of the NFC championship game, Lil Uzi Vert performed “Just Wanna Rock” leading the Philadelphia Eagles on the field. The spot, along with many other Philly moments, was normally reserved for Meek Mill’s “Dreams & Nightmares,” but DJ Drama says it’s over for that.

Uzi is aligned with DJ Drama’s Generation Now, so it’s not a surprise to hear him say it.

“You did see Lil Uzi Vert bring out the Eagles to victory against the 49ers with ‘I Just Wanna Rock,’” Drama said. “I think it’s fair to say ‘I Just Wanna Rock,’ with all due respect, has replaced ‘Dreams & Nightmares’ as the new anthem of Philadelphia and the new anthem of the Philadelphia Eagles this year.”
