Jack Harlow’s stock continues to rise in the world of hip-hop and there is a good reason for that. Jack had his first number one hit less than a year after he rose to superstardom due to his collaboration with Lil Nas X. He also opened up about his friendship with Pete Davidson.

The now former SNL cast member has become one of the most in-demand celebrities in Hollywood right now. He is not known to sugarcoat words when it comes to expressing his opinion about any given topic.

Pete Davidson is generally well liked, so it was not really a surprise when it was revealed that he and Jack Harlow are close friends. Davidson surprised a crowd of Harlow fans during the rapper’s concert in Los Angeles earlier this year.

While speaking a new mini-essay for TIME, Jack Harlow revealed that Davidson was responsible for his Saturday Night Live appearance last year. He also revealed why he is so close to Pete Davidson.

“A couple years ago, I was on FaceTime with a girl who said she and her friend were with someone who wanted to meet me. She passed the phone, and suddenly I was looking at Pete Davidson. He told me we had to meet. I agreed. After a few months of knowing each other (but never meeting), Pete successfully pushed to get me on SNL, which was a genuine dream come true for me and my family. I grew up watching the show with them and got to bring them on set. My mom was in tears. The night before the show, I went over to Pete’s apartment and he made my friend and me laugh until our stomachs hurt. I felt like I was experiencing elite comedy up close and personal.

Harlow believes that Davidson is appealing to the world because of his “authenticity. He doesn’t try to hide the person that he is. It’s a classic recipe for success and connection. I would consider myself truthful, but being around Pete makes me want to continue to reach even further for the realest version of myself.”

We don’t have another one of him. He’s daring, thoughtful, and simply hilarious. And he’s only 28. An icon with so much more left to accomplish.”

Pete Davidson took part in his final Saturday Night Live episode last week as well. He also sent a very emotional letter to the show prior to his final appearance. We’ll have to see what the future holds for Davidson now.
