Jack Harlow had been waiting forever to collaborate with his idol, Eminem, so you can imagine how excited he was when he finally got to work with Slim Shady on the remix to “Killer,” which also featured Cordae.
Speaking with Billboard, Jack reflected on the encouraging words Em shared with him during their phone conversation.
“I haven’t shared it with the world yet, but I can’t wait until the world hears it,” Harlow said.
“He gave me a lot of props that any artist would love to get.
Sometimes, the best gem is just somebody you admire, letting you know who you think you are. He let me know, ‘You’re that. You’re dope.’ I’ve waited a decade to hear that. So it was special.”
The Louisville rapper also spoke about his new song “SUVs (Black On Black)” with incarcerated rapper Pooh Shiesty.
“[He] followed me on IG and messaged me, saying, ‘You’re hard.’ I thought he was hard too,” remembered Harlow. “So we linked up and got into the studio. It came together real quick. It was natural. He’s a friendly guy — smiles a lot. Free him. “
Jack Harlow and his good friend Lil Nas X performed their Billboard Hot 100 hit “Industry Baby” at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards.
