Concert promoters claim in a lawsuit filed Tuesday that Atlanta rapper Lil Uzi Vert hastily canceled an Arizona show in October, costing the marketers more than $600,000.

The suit was filed in Fulton County Superior Court because the rapper, whose real name is Symere Woods, listed his place of business at Means Street Studios in downtown Atlanta.

The suit also claims that Woods lives in unincorporated DeKalb County.

The studio nor the rapper’s listed management were immediately available for comment by phone nor email Tuesday night.

The Philadelphia-born rapper was nominated for two Grammy awards in 2017, one for best new artist and the other for his performance on megahit "Bad And Boujee" with Gwinnett County's Migos.

According to an exhibit in the court file, Woods signed a agreement with the promoters Aug. 13 ahead of the Oct. 20 show, set for 11 p.m. at the Tucson Convention Center.

The convention center tweeted out at 9:16 p.m. the day before saying that the show was “postponed” and didn’t give a new date.

The lawsuit claims that Woods has “failed or refused to schedule another concert date or reimburse (the promoters) for its expenses.”

Reports from December claim that Woods was forced to pay $30,000 for missing a show in Texas during March 2017.

Closer to home, Woods was arrested in Atlanta for allegedly riding unregistered and uninsured dirt bikes on sidewalks and the wrong way into traffic along Northside Drive in December 2016.
