Jack Harlow, hip-hop’s newest charming scamp, is currently on a roll. He’s hanging out with his musical hero Drake, receiving high praise from Kanye West, playing in the NBA’s All-Star Celebrity Game and balling out, too. He’s also been cast in an upcoming remake of the classic basketball comedy White Men Can’t Jump.
As a result, it’s only natural for him to follow in the footsteps of many of his rap colleagues and partner with a fast-food restaurant to create his own menu. That’s precisely what he’s done. With McDonald’s, Popeye’s, Taco Bell, Arby’s and all taken, what better chain for the Louisville native to collaborate with than KFC?
According to the press release, Jack and KFC have launched the new “Jack’s Favorite’s” menu, which includes the menu items he is most fond of since he was a child. Jack even went on to compare his partnership with KFC to poetic justice.
Partnering up with KFC feels like poetic justice. I’ve begun traveling the world and no matter how far I go, KFC is one of the first things people want to bring up when they find out where I’m from.
Unfortunately, the Jack’s Favorites menu consists primarily of familiar products such as the 4-piece tender combo, mac & cheese, and biscuit, with no unusual new additions. Megan got Hottie Sauce on hers after Saweetie’s McDonald’s menu encouraged fans to remix their favorites.
With Jack’s collaboration set to last a year and feature campaigns, social media activations, unique menu item releases, and exclusive experiences, hopefully there will be some flashy new menu items. Take a look at the Jack’s Favorite menu here.
