Big Glo is claiming ignorance after a recent pic of her and the New York rapper hit the internet.

GloRilla's lyrics make her sound just as bada** as her contemporaries. Still, throughout her rise to fame, the Memphis native has kept us laughing with her ignorance on several topics. There was the time when she stressed out her stylist by throwing rented sunglasses into the crowd. This prompted the rap diva's team to snatch them back from an enthusiastic fan. Elsewhere, she also faced considerable backlash for posting a throwback photo with a gun on social media – a decision which has had seriously negative impacts on the careers of other Black stars.

Now that that's cleared up, the black-haired beauty can get back on preparing her debut album, which she began teasing last month.

Fivio Foreign isn't the only celebrity that GloRilla has been spotted out and about with so far this month. Earlier in September, she and SZA linked up to attend one of Beyonce's three star-studded concerts in Los Angeles. Both of them donned bold and beautiful silver outfits at the Virgo Queen's request.
