Jack Harlow (born March 13, 1998) is an American rapper from Louisville, Kentucky. He released his first official project in 2014 titled Finally Handsome, as well as an EP the following year which kickstarted his drive to make music.
After racking up around 250,000 total views on YouTube as of 2016, his 2017 project, Gazebo, was immediately met with a very positive reaction by fans and celebrities alike; launching his career to another platform. “Dark Knight”—the second song released off the album—eventually featured on the front page of Worldstar Hip-Hop and racked up 1,000,000+ views on YouTube. Additionally, he even got a co-sign for the aforementioned song from both Peter Rosenberg and fellow Louisville native Bryson Tiller.
Harlow is now associated with DJ Drama and Don Cannon’s Generation Now record label. In 2018, he released Loose. Harlow’s fourth official project and his first major release since signing with Generation Now and Atlantic Records, the project was a showcase of his increasing stardom, as he managed to get rap veteran CyHi The Prynce and former XXL Freshman K Camp to feature on the project. That same year, Harlow was even a guest performer at Genius' very own IQ/BBQ. Jack was later named to the 2020 XXL Freshman list, himself.
His shot to stardom reached a peak it had never seen in 2020, as his song “WHATS POPPIN” acquired features from Lil Wayne, DaBaby, and Tory Lanez and made it to the Top Ten of the Billboard Hot 100.
