Any feature that is labled using the label tool near the annotation of an existing layer will not be labled but rather a Map tip box will appear.
Annotation stored in the Map Document is conflicting with the label tool.
As an alternative you can store the annotation in as a Geodatabase Annotation Feature Class. Turn off the Annotation Layer while you are labeling other features.
