The pandemic hasn’t been kind to most people. However, Jack Harlow has seen a meteoric rise in fame in the past couple of years. People are interested in his life so much and now he has revealed the reason why he stopped drinking.
Jack has opened up about various aspects of his life and his music in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. On the topic of sobriety, the 24-year-old told the outlet that he doesn’t think he has a problem. He then revealed that he quit drinking last year to keep his priorities aligned.
“I’m sick of waking up with a dry throat, sick of feeling bloated, I’m sick of the decisions I make on it. I’m in my well-oiled-machine era. Because I can see my future right in front of me. And I feel there’s so many people counting on me outside of myself.”
In August, the rapper got candid on social media about his journey to sobriety. Jack said he hadn’t “had a single sip of alcohol in 2021.” This just went on to show his amazing mettle when it comes to sorting out the most important things in life.
During the interview, the rapper also opened up about his upbringing. He also said living a normal life as a teenager prepared him for his career now. When Harlow was in high school, he had opportunities to sign with a label but they all eventually fell through, luckily.
On talking about his source of motivation, he said it all stems from the love he has received since childhood. In comparison to artists who are driven by trauma, his stems from his passion for music and hunger for success. This way of thinking has affected his craft which we all love today.
Jack Harlow will not let a single thing get in between himself and his career. His life is not only his anymore as millions look up to him. Jack’s sobriety is a way of him living up to the expectations of him as an artist and his fans.
