Twitter user @akaElJefe claims Lil Uzi Vert's manager scammed him out of eight pairs of shoes, including some Yeezy 700s.
In a strange twist, Jefe appears to have four unreleased CDC Uzi Vert tracks and he's prepared to release them if Uzi's team doesn't make things right.
Jefe explains what went down in a series of Tweets. But the short of it is Uzi's manager bought the shoes and then claimed they were fake. Jefe said they are not, and has the receipts to prove it. He eventually decided to refund the money on the condition they send the shoes back. But they didn't send the shoes back and blocked him.

Time to expose all of Lil UZI’s team who scammed me
In December, a friend linked me to Uzi’s team because they needed Yeezy 700s. Sold the 700s to Uzi’s crew no problem. Came with receipt from Yeezy Supply. Transaction with their team went smoothly. pic.twitter.com/lKPzsGdt29— THE CHOSEN ONE (@akaElJefe) September 6, 2018
They brought me to a show. As a token of appreciation, I offered their team some of the original Off White Nike collection for very good prices since I had many pairs. I sold 10 pairs of Off Whites to them. These were all purchased from https://t.co/CXFRyRksqi UK site as seen pic.twitter.com/v8pyZBeusx— THE CHOSEN ONE (@akaElJefe) September 6, 2018
A few days later, I get a text from @MeanW (Uzi’s manager)saying they are fake. I have been selling sneakers for 5+ years, not once have I gotten a complaint regarding fake sneakers.I sent receipts to them and even the accounts on https://t.co/CXFRyRksqi to prove they aren't fake pic.twitter.com/y5cI7uGtc2— THE CHOSEN ONE (@akaElJefe) September 6, 2018
I was done with arguing with them because I am not going to beg someone to take $1000s of dollars worth of sneakers for a fraction of the price so I decided I wanted them back. I sent the money for them and expected a shipment back. Instead,@MeanW BLOCKED my number and scammed me pic.twitter.com/tiRoDsebIT— THE CHOSEN ONE (@akaElJefe) September 6, 2018
I realize sending the money to him beforehand was a stupid move, but trying to scam me WILL have consequences.— THE CHOSEN ONE (@akaElJefe) September 6, 2018

Those shoes seem too big for Lil Uzi. So we doubt he had anything to do with the scam.
