Jack Harlow spoke about his responsibilities as a white rapper in a culture originally created by Black and Latino artists.
671 In 2020, Jack Harlow took part in the #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor protestsin his hometown. Breonna Taylor is the African-American EMT who was shot and killed in her home when three plainclothes Louisville police officers executed a botched no-knock warrant. I feel blessed to have a voice in this period because, one, Im not a street artist, and two, Im not Black, added Jack Harlow. The only thing keeping me here right now is that level of authenticity, of being myself. The 23-year-old Generation Now representative partnered with New Balance for his own sneaker collection. He spoke about his interest in fashion with Footwear News. When I first moved to Atlanta, I would go out with some of my OGs to the mall and I would see them buy all this designer stuff. I remember thinking in my head, Oh, when you sign your deal, this is what you do with your money, you go to a designer store and this is how you become a good dresser, said Jack Harlow. The Thats What They All Say album creator continued, I spent probably about six months to a year buying designer stuff and throwing it on aimlessly, I wasnt doing it right. But coming down here gave me a taste for high-end expensive fabrics. Posted in
