Jack Harlow Announces New Album ‘Come Home The Kids Miss You’ / Talks Being a Gen-Z Sex Symbol with Rolling Stone

Published: Wednesday 16th Mar 2022 by Sam

Jack Harlow has a new collection of jams incoming.

For, the rapper has announced his sophomore album ‘Come Home The Kids Miss You’ in the latest issue of Rolling Stone. 

Preceded by single ‘Nail Tech,’ the LP arrives May 6. 

Within the feature, the Louisville native dishes on wanting to be his generation’s GOAT, life as a Gen Z sex symbol, and much more.

Full story below…

On Blowing Up Later After Initial Label Interest When He Was Younger:

“I dodged a bullet.  got to go to public school. I got to go to parties. I got to lose my virginity in a normal way. A lot of dominoes had to fall the right way for me to be good at being a rapper. Because I’m still a white guy and I didn’t grow up poor. I had to get perspective to say things that could be universally relatable. I got to finish high school. I got to be regular. I got to be humbled. I got to dress poorly. I got to figure myself out.”

On Quitting Alcohol & Getting Health Conscious: 

“I’m in my well-oiled-machine era. Because I can see my future right in front of me. And I feel there’s so many people counting on me outside of myself. I just feel like I’m a man. I don’t feel like I need to do boyish things anymore.”

On Being Considered a Gen-Z Sex Symbol:

“It started with ‘Who the f*ck is this white boy? He’s dope.’ Then it arced into ‘Who the fuck is this white boy? He’s funny as fuck.’ ” The latter assessment started with a viral Genius video in which he coined the slang “bricked up,” a now-ubiquitous description of male arousal adapted from the Louisville slang “on brick.” “Now it’s the girl thing. It went dope, funny, girls. I’m ready to get back to dope.”

On Having a Fan Base Dominated by Women:

“To be able to make a song that women like is what it’s all about for me…That’s really what you want, to make something that your crush wants to hear.”

On His Motivations:

“I grew up with a lot of love. I grew up with a pretty happy disposition. I’d say I had a great upbringing. So that’s a great question. It’s really a question I want to wrestle with with my therapist. Why do I care so much? Why am I so ambitious? But I just am. It’s me, bro. I wake up and I’m hungry. I think a lot of times you’re right, ambition does come from damage. But it comes from passion for me. I want to live the richest life I can. I just want to feel everything that I could possibly feel. I’m not satisfied with living, like, average life.”

On Wanting to Be The GOAT in a Genre Anchored in Blackness:

“This is a question I’ve asked myself. But at the end of the day, people could ask, ‘Is it right for you as a white person to rap?’ But people see I have an innate passion for rapping, so they don’t ask me that question. . . . There’s a competitive side to this, and honoring the competition makes it even more real and hip-hop, instead of me saying:  ‘Hey, I shouldn’t have won that.’

I’m saying, I love this sh*t so much that I’m gonna go out on that court and play as hard as you’re playing. And we’re not gonna discuss if it’s OK. Let’s play ball. I’m here to play ball.”

The spread comes at a busy time for the MC.

For, not only is Harlow set to perform at the GRAMMY Awards on April 3, but he is also gearing up to star as the lead in the ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ revival.

    The trajectory of his career has been interesting so far.

    He came out the gate with a huge budget, big name features on his debut album, gracing major stages and walking red carpets.

    One could say he’s an industry plant, or is he just well connected?

    I don’t know anyone who listens to him but maybe I’m not in his market? He looks handsome in that second pic.
