INTERVIEW: Lil Uzi Vert Defends Jack Harlow
TMZ interviewed Lil Uzi Vert on Sunday to get his thoughts on whether there is any truth to his belief that white privilege played a role in his friend Jack Harlow‘s success.
Uzi was first asked if Harlow deserved criticism, and he flatly rejected the idea, assuring the interviewer that the Louisville native was “very good.” When speech changed white privilege, according to the HNHH, “no, there is no white privilege … He signed on to black people.”
Harlow signed with DJ Drama and Generation Now, which was founded by Don Cannon. The HNHH noted that the two were not on good terms when the two initially posted a photo of Uzi Harlow on social media and put the clown emoji on his face. They have since resolved their differences.
David Banner recently claimed that white rappers enjoy white privilege and said, “White people around the world support everything.”
When asked if Harlow was among those in the group, he replied, “Of course. The whiteness of white people is a benefit for them anywhere in the world. If whites run the structure, whiteness will benefit.”

Lil Uzi Vert Says He’s Focused on ‘Working’ and Is ‘Going Back to Classic Mode’
Looks like Lil Uzi Vert is working on new music.
It’s been a minute since Uzi first introduced The Pink Tape. Since revealing his name, Uzi has continued to mock music, most recently last month when he said he “put it all on this album.”
On Tuesday, Uzi took to her Instagram Story to seemingly sell out her next offer, no matter what.
“This time it’s harder to talk less,” Uzi wrote on IG. “We’re going back to classic mode. I’ve been too much twice this time. Nothing can hurt me.”
