Eminem commended the rising Kentucky musician during a phone discussion with Jack Harlow, according to the contents of the call.
The two collaborated on Eminem’s “Killer” remix earlier this year, which also featured North Carolina rapper Cordae. The song first appeared on ‘Music to Be Murdered By – Side B,’ the enlarged deluxe edition of ‘Music to Be Murdered By,’ released last year.
Harlow, who has yet to meet his hero Eminem, stated that he chatted with the 8 Mile rapper over the phone while on the red carpet at the MTV VMAs on Sunday (September 12).
He told Billboard, “We didn’t get to meet, but we had a phone chat that meant the world to me.” “I haven’t shared it with the rest of the world yet, but I can’t wait till they do. He lavished me with props that any artist would adore.”
“Sometimes the best jewel is just someone you admire letting you know who you think you are,” he concluded. ‘You’re that,’ he told me. ‘You’re a dope.’ I’ve been waiting for that for a decade. So it was unique.”
Harlow shared the stage with Lil Nas X for a performance of their new collaboration, “Industry Baby,” at the VMAs.
Lil Nas X took the stage with a full marching band behind him for the performance, before removing his shirt and performing in front of a Montero Prison background. After emerging out of a prison cell, Harlow joined him on stage for his verse. The track changed to ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ just before they finished the performance.
The show takes place just days before Lil Nas X’s debut album, ‘Montero,’ is released on September 17. The title track, “Industry Baby,” and “Sun Goes Down” are among the 15 tracks on the album. The tracklist also includes collaborations with Megan Thee Stallion, Elton John, Miley Cyrus, and Doja Cat, in addition to Harlow.
Meanwhile, Harlow has addressed why he stopped consuming alcohol in 2021, informing followers that he hasn’t touched a drop in a year.
