Jack Harlow has seen a huge rise in the world of hip-hop over the past couple of years. Jack had his first number one hit less than a year after he gained popularity thanks to his collaboration with Lil Nas X. He also didn’t watch White Men Can’t Jump until he was cast in the reboot.
The topic of white rappers using the n-word remains a widely discussed one even now. Lately, white rappers have adopted the word with the argument that they aren’t using it as a racial slur.
On the other hand, Jack Harlow has an entirely different take on the whole discussion. This is because he is serious about not using the N-word in any of his songs, ever.
While speaking during the 85 South Comedy Show, Jack Harlow claimed that his mother told him to never use the n-word, while he was listening to Kanye West’s ‘Late Registration.’
“My earliest memory is my mom buying Late Registration and playing it in the car and telling me I can’t say the n-word and just me getting introduced to Hip Hop,” said Harlow. “That was it right there.
She was just about to play—this was the first album I remember hearing with that word. [She said,] ‘Hey, you’re about to hear a word on here. You can never say it in your life.'” The hosts joked about what it was like for a young Harlow to ask his mother which word she was referring to. “She’s like, ‘You’ll know it when you hear it.'”
I don’t even say in my room, under my breath, never,” said Harlow. He was told, “Don’t even think it.”
Jack Harlow continues to make his mark in the hip-hop world and the future is truly bright for the young star. We will have to wait and see whether he will end up collaborating with Kanye West one day or not. Fans would love to see that happen somewhere down the line.
