Kentucky rapper Jack Harlow has been a well-known white emcee in hip-hop for over a decade, and since the release of his 2018 mixtape Loose, the lyricist has had a career of ups and downs.
Since signing with DJ Drama’s Generation Now record label, the young artist has achieved incredible things and has quite the following. However, since then, Harlow has been continuously underwhelming with his material, and his album, Come Home the Kids Miss You, was received extremely poorly by critics.
However, irrespective of what the critics thought, last year, while in Nashville on his nationwide tour, Harlow did something extremely odd and, during his performance, began telling the crowd a story about when he lost his virginity.
Drunkenly shouting, Harlow told the audience, “I lost my virginity when I was 16,” he told the crowd. “I always tell people I lost it twice because when I was 18, and I graduated high school, somehow, some way, I landed this dime piece who was five or six years older than me. She was like 23, 24 — it blew my mind because Nashville, you have to understand, at that point, I’d only fuck with girls I’ve seen in the halls.”
He continued, “It was like welcome to the big leagues like it was huge! I remember I used to take this girl to my indoor soccer games, and she would pick me up and take me home to my homeboys. She was sitting there watching the game, and they’d be like, ‘Yo, who is that?’ I’d be like, ‘Oh her? Yeah, we have sex, you know, like I was feeling myself, and it’s true, we did.”
As well as speaking to crowds about women in his life, last year, he also spoke with Teen Vogue to praise black females, divulging, “Black women are such a massive part of my career. I was telling The New York Times how it’s not a massive phenomenon to me because it’s just a continuation of how my life was before I was famous. They’ll never have to worry about not being credited by me.”
He added, “I mean, I look out at my shows, and I see them. It’s one thing when you see the memes, and you hear people talking about it, but it’s another when you travel the country, and you see them all over the place. I love Black women. I’ve loved Black women my whole life.”
