However, his fame has not automatically come with etiquette, and we have some cringe-worthy moments from the young "fan-boy" musician to share with you.

Jackman was born to wealthy businessmen Maggie Payette and Brian Harlow on March 13 1998. He was first exposed to hip-hop when he was seven years old by his mother Maggie, who regularly listened to The Marshall Mathers LP and other masterpieces while cruising around their hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.
Due to his skills as a rapper, many have asked: is Jack Harlow white or mixed race? Jackman is Caucasian from a diverse heritage, with a mixture of French and Irish roots.
"I think what has worked for me is that my music has never been about the fact that I am white."
This up-and-coming hip-hop musician began his career in the industry in 2011 with a series of mix-tapes. These musical collections were titled: Extra Credit, Finally Handsome, 18, Gazebo, Loose, and Confetti.
Jack Harlow's album, "Thats What They All Say," launched his musical career on December 11, 2020. The real breakthrough came with Jack Harlow - "What's Poppin'", which reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the US R&B/Hip-Hop charts.
Jack has partnered with prominent artists like Lil Wayne, Tory Lanez, and Chris Brown during his rise to fame.
With "Industry Baby," his dynamite new song with Lil Nas X, he is enjoying his first #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, which the pair performed at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards.

Jack Harlow and Saweetie
Saweetie's track "Tap In (Remix)" starring DaBaby and Post Malone spotlighted Jack Harlow.
In late June of 2021, the young rapper and the infamous Saweetie had an awkward interaction whilst on the red carpet of the BET Awards. Harlow interrupted an interview between Saweetie and "The Shade Room," and was abruptly shut down by the gorgeous diva.
Saweetie has been making headlines after her break-up with Migos' rapper Quavo, which allegedly ended with a display of physical violence from Quavo's side. She commented on the situation on Twitter by stating:
"Presents don't bandaid scars and the love isn't real when the intimacy is given to other women."
Jack Harlow and Tyler, The Creator
Yet another cringe-worthy exchange of words took place between musicians Jack and his idol, Tyler. For some unknown reason, the young rapper decided to face-time with Tyler to introduce and express his admiration. Their mutual friend, DJ Drama, facilitated this introduction.
Where does Jack Harlow live?
After graduating from Atherton High School, the young rapper moved from Louisiana to Atlanta to pursue his career in music. However, he felt that better opportunities were up for offer in a larger city. His parents allegedly are trying to convince him to buy a property in Louisiana, and we will see if his upcoming "No Place Like Home" tour is confirmation of this.
Who said Jack Harlow was better than Eminem?
Eminem is apparently no longer the best white musician in the hip-hop industry, as 2Kbaby proclaimed on Twitter in 2020:
"No Disrespect but Jack Harlow better then Eminem or Did i hit this backwood to hard!"
This comment was met with outrage, so 2Kbaby responded with:
"People always disrespecting 2pac I say something bout Eminem erbody get tight YES JACK HARLOW BETTER!!"
Jack Harlow is steadily climbing up the ladder and earning a name for himself in the hip-hop music industry. Having friends in high places has undoubtedly helped the young rapper along his climb to success, and his talent has kept his momentum going. His fans wish him the best of luck with the second Grammy Nomination of his career so far, and fans are loving his latest track- Luv Is Dro (feat. Static Major & Bryson Tiller.)
After wearing a one-of-a-kind attire on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards, Lil Nas X drew attention.
His unique ensemble was completed by the purple square-toe boots he was wearing. Find out how people reacted to this brave wardrobe choice with Briefly.co.za.
