Uzi's comments on Harlow comes after Brandy has responded to his claim of not knowing who she was during his visit to Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning breakfast show were he admitted not knowing that she was Ray J's sister.

After being informed by the radio hosts that they were indeed siblings, the First Class rapper responded saying "Nobody’s ever told me that in my life".

The R&B singer clapped back at Harlow on Twitter tweeting "I will murk this dude in rap at 43 on his own beats and then sing is ass to sleep".

Fans of Harlow quickly called him out for being clueless on Black culture but involving himself in Black music, with one user tweeting "Not recognizing Brandy’s voice is why he shouldn’t be doing black music".

Another person wrote: "Jack Harlow had a black woman as his album cover, has mostly black woman in his videos, talking bout how much he “loves” black women in that long ass IG post but he didn’t know who brandy was?? But if I say he’s pandering I’m wrong lol ok".
