Jack Harlow is currently promoting his latest single ‘Nail Tech‘ which has gotten off to a good start everywhere.
Today in a new interview with Rollingstone, the Louisville, Kentucky rapper has announced that his new album is titled Come Home the Kids Miss You and will arrive May 6 via Generation Now/Atlantic Records. It will serve as the follow up to his debut album That’s What They All Say which spawned multiple hits including the multi platinum ‘What’s Poppin’.
Jack said ‘Nail Tech’ is probably his “least favorite song on the album. But I know the effect it’s gonna have on people. I’m spitting, and there’s energy behind the beat.. I have different tastes. I can’t believe people love to listen to ‘Tyler Herro’ on repeat and ‘What’s Poppin’ on repeat.”
Jack says he wants to be the face of his generation, and one of his biggest inspirations is obviously Eminem who is the most well known white rapper in the world. “That’s what made Em so hard — he was in the dog pile,” says Harlow. “I want to be the face of my shit, like the face of my generation, for these next 10 years. We need more people in my generation that are trying to be the best, and you can’t do that with just ear candy, vibe records. You got to come out swinging sometimes. . . . My new shit is much more serious. Right now, my message is letting muh’fuckers know I love hip-hop, and I’m one of the best in my generation. You can’t do that with nonchalant, like, ‘Eeey, I got the bitches,’ in clever ways over and over again. I got to dig deeper this time.”
He adds that he’s glad that he has a big female fanbase. “It’s sick,” he says. “I f**k with it! . . . To be able to make a song that women like is what it’s all about for me. There’s a lot of things it’s all about, but that’s a huge one. That’s really what you want, to make something that your crush wants to hear.”
Earlier this month, it was announced that Jack will star in the official White Men Can’t Jump Remake.
