Atlanta buzzmaker Madeintyo burst onto the scene in 2016, when his smash single, "Uber Everywhere," became a viral hit.

By taking advantage of the popularity of the ride-sharing service, the Warner Bros. Records signee saw the record peak at No. 51 on the Billboard Hot 100 and earn a Platinum certification by the RIAA. 

So, what does Madeintyo have planned for an encore in 2017? 

For starters, he's no longer #TeamUber.

Madeintyo's decision to distance himself from the company whose name helped him earn a hit comes one day after Uber tweeted that they had suspended surge pricing in New York, undermining a strike by NY taxi drivers who were protesting President Donald Trump's executive order to ban people from several countries from entering the U.S. 

This, of course, prompted a #DeleteUber movement on Twitter, which has seen thousands of Twitter users uploading photos and video of themselves deleting the Uber app from their mobile phone.

Lyft, Uber's chief competition in the ride-sharing space, jumped on their rival's PR gaffe, announcing plans on Sunday (January 29) to donate $1 million over the next four years to the ACLU. 

Despite hip-hop's often rocky relationship with corporate America, if Lyft were to reach out to Madeintyo to gain his support on social media, I'd highly encourage him to pick up the call.
