There’s a new star in hip-hop. On Friday, Jack Harlow released his sophomore album, Come Home the Kids Miss You, two years after dropping his full-length debut That’s What They All Say. The 15-track album comes just in time after the release of Harlow’s new Fergie-sampling single “First Class,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Along with a song dedicated and titled after English singer Dua Lipa, Come Home the Kids Miss You features Pharrell Williams (“Movie Star”), Drake (“Churchhill Downs”), Justin Timberlake (“Parent Trap”) and Lil Wayne (“Poison”).
Along with making it in rap, Harlow is set to star in a remake of 1992 film White Men Can’t Jump, with music video filmmaker Calmatic set to direct, and also starring Teyana Taylor, Lance Reddick and Laura Harrier, according to Deadline.
In a new profile by The New York Times, Harlow spoke on being a part of the rising class of white rappers, noting earlier generations of rappers including Eminem, Asher Roth and more.
“I’m not preoccupied with my whiteness,” Harlow said. “I am aware of it, but it’s not something that I’m battling against or lifting up. I just let it be,” he said. “Even though I haven’t lived through all those generations, I’m aware of and I’ve been able to reflect on them,” he added.
