Jack Harlow sat down with Zane Lowe to discuss “Come Home The Kids Miss You”
The album “Come Home The Kids Miss You“, by Jack Harlow, arrived on Friday, so naturally the 24-year-old got the press, promoting the 15-track album. More recently, he spoke to Zane Lowefrom Apple Music, to discuss rumors about him being an “industrial plant” (artists who act like things are miraculously happening for them based on their talent), his biggest inspirations, and how he remains humble as he rises to stardom, among others. other things.
“My career had a very humble beginning,” the “WHAT’S POPPIN” hitmaker told the host. “That’s why whenever I see my name associated with something like ‘industrial plant,’ I’m very proud to be able to say that I’m, of everyone in the game right now, one of the furthest away from that.” Harlow recalled his appearances at events like South by Southwest and A3C, even performing at showcases “with no one there”.
“On my first tour, I went to Madison, Wisconsin, did a verse with eight people,” he said. “I felt those feelings of not being the guy. Yeah, and to confirm I was walking around and finding out I wasn’t the guy. I felt it all, I did it, but it’s like you said, once you’re in that bubble, and if people haven’t seen any of it, they’re like, ‘Where did he come from? Wow, he just got helped again.’”
Although Jack Harlow didn’t become an overnight success, now that he has, the “White Men Can’t Jump” star has plenty of legends on his side, including Drake and Kanye West, which he revealed to have been major inspirations for his own work. “We had our talks. And more than anything, I just draw inspiration from his notes. Drizzy is launching a project and he’s definitely my motivation, you know what I’m saying?” Harlow said about the Toronto native.
“I just get inspired by all the legends because it moves me. Kanye West is an example of what I said. I see what he does. But I think it all comes down to him not just being a street artist. Because it’s something so traditional about this genre. And if you’re not from the street… I’m not the first artist to go through this”.
