Jack Harlow 85 South
Jack Harlow is a young Louisville native who has been making quite a name for himself in the music industry. He recently signed to the Don Cannon and DJ Drama juggernauts of the hip hop world, Generation Now. And, he’s not stopping anytime soon. Not only does he have a number one album in the bag, but he’s also about to start a tour with City Girls and Bryson Tiller. It’s no surprise that he’s been awarded with multiple awards for his work in the past couple years, and he’s not done yet.
While he’s been busy touring the world, Harlow has had time to squeeze in a little bit of self-indulgence. For example, he was in the news for a good reason when his friend rap superstar Drake visited his hometown of Louisville. A few months later, the two took a mini vacation to the Turks and Caicos. During their time away from Louisville, the duo bonded over sports betting, music, and, of course, cocktails. Despite the fact that they both are relatively young, the two friends have maintained a close friendship. As a result, when they got back home, they were able to pull together the most impressive of their collaborative efforts.
Although Harlow is not a first-ballot Hall of Famer (yet), he is currently riding high on the success of his second studio album, Come Home the Kids Miss You. He’s also had the chance to collaborate with his friends and a few of his contemporaries, including his cousin Copelan Garvey and DJ Bryson Tiller. This was the source of a few of his best songs, including the aptly named “City Girl” and “Thru the night”. But, the real prize here is his growing list of fans.
One of the more interesting achievements of the night was the emergence of a mutual adulation between the two lynchpins of the Louisville rap game, which in turn led to the aforementioned collaborations. So, it’s no surprise that he’s a fan of the foxy one. In fact, he even boasted that he placed the six gods of gambling bets at the Kentucky Derby. The gist of it all, however, is that he actually lost a few thousand dollars on the bet, which was a lot less than the cost of his flights home. That, and his loss of faith in his own abilities. If he’s able to shake that funk, he might just be the next big thing in the world of hip hop.
Obviously, the 85 South x its ilk is a fun place to be. There’s something about having a bunch of bozos in the same room – especially if those bozos are rappers. Fortunately, Harlow managed to make the most of his visit, even taking a few selfies with the gang.
