GloRilla has released some teaser photos from her upcoming campaign with Tommy Hilfiger, which is expected to drop later this week.
On Tuesday (March 28), the Memphis rap star uploaded a small collage of photos of the iconic brand’s new capsule to Instagram. In the pics, Big Glo sports the signature red, white, and blue colors that made the brand famous.
The collaboration will be in partnership with Aries, a luxury streetwear brand founded by Sofia Prantera. The new collection is scheduled to be released on March 31.

Prior to her post, the Grammy-nominated rapper revealed the upcoming campaign during her recent Paper Magazinespread. During the interview, the rapper revealed she took a lot of inspiration from the late singer Aaliyah, who also modeled for the brand back in the day.
“I’m a big Aaliyah fan, and I love what she did with them,” she said. “I’m part of keeping a legacy going.”
She continued: “It’s refreshing to me, because I love the old-school and being able to bring it to my generation.”
Unfortunately for GloRilla, it isn’t all smooth sailing. She and Finesse2Tymes are facing legal action in connection with a deadly stampede that left three women dead at a show in Rochester, New York.
Per TMZ, the family of Brandy Miller — who was killed in the immediate aftermath of the tragic incident — has been speaking with their lawyers and exploring what legal options are at their disposal.
Michelle Miller, the woman’s sister, informed TMZ that the family will likely sue the concert venue Main Street Armory and the promoters who organized the event, as well as the two rappers.
ABC News originally reported that concert-goers believed shots had been fired inside the venue, which led to a panicked crowd rush that injured 10 people.
Rochester Police responded at 11:05 p.m. based on initial reports of gunshots, but didn’t find anyone with injuries consistent with bullet wounds. An investigation is ongoing to determine whether a gun had actually been fired inside the venue.
The “F.N.F.” rapper took to Twitter to address the tragedy shortly after, writing at first: “I’m just now hearing about what happened wtf [teary sad face emojis] praying everybody is ok [prayer hands emojis].”
She later returned with a longer message, saying: “I am devastated & heartbroken over the tragic deaths that happened after Sunday’s show. My fans mean the world to me [teary sad face emoji] praying for their families & for a speedy recovery of everyone affected [prayer hands emoji].”
