Jack Harlow may have a couple of Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles to his name, but not everyone knows who he is just yet.



The “First Class” rapper attended Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals between the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics at the TD Garden on Sunday (May 1) when he was brought to the attention of mic’ed up referees Scott Foster and Ed Malloy. Harlow appeared on the jumbotron to applause from the crowd, but the refs had no idea who he was.

“Who is Jack Harlow?” Foster asked, to which Malloy responded, “I have no idea.”

Foster continued, “He’s the guy over here, right here. He’s in that white shirt, behind you.”

“Yeah, who is he?” Malloy replied, to which Foster said, “I don’t know. Go ask him.”

Jack Harlow caught wind of the viral clip — which has racked up millions of views — and joked on Twitter, “Clearly these mfs have never seen Narnia.”

The referee conversation wasn’t the only Jack Harlow-related topic of the night. While sitting courtside, the Louisville, Kentucky native took to his Instagram Stories to share a video of himself playing with buttons on an NBA camera operator’s equipment.

Although oblivious at the time, the camerawoman, Tami Nguyen, ended up seeing Overtime’s repost of the video that featured the caption, “Jack Harlow bouta get someone fired.”



In response, she tweeted, “Hi @jackharlow you owe me chicken fingers,” to which Harlow replied, “I got you Tami.”

Jack Harlow is set to play Billy Hoyle in the remake of the 1992 basketball movie White Men Can’t Jump. Despite landing the role, NBA star Kawhi Leonard apparently told him he needs to work on his layups.

“He’s the shit,” Harlow said about Leonard. “I met him for the first time the other day… Told him about the movie I’m preparing for. He told me I need to get my layup package together because it’s ass.”
