Jack Harlow Speaks On “Jackman” Reception, Thanks Fans & Peers For The Love

Jack Harlow's recently released album Jackman saw him return to what his OG fans knew him best for. Rather than engage in more pop production and songwriting with big features, the Louisville rapper took on ten hip-hop instrumentals by himself on his latest full-length. Of course, not everyone is a fan of the project, whether for its quality as it stands or because they're haters of his style. No matter where you fall on that spectrum, Harlow is thankful for the support and acclaim he's received. Moreover, he took to Twitter to express a message to his listeners and industry colleagues two weeks after Jackman hit digital and physical shelves.

"2 weeks have passed," Jack Harlow began his remarks. "I just wanna say the love & respect I’ve felt from not only my peers… but from YALL… the fans… the folks that have supported me from the beginning… it feels f***in amazing... I have never felt so connected to the people listening to my music… thank you." While Jackman's sales numbers saw a dip from his previous effort (Come Home, The Kids Miss You), clearly it's not at the top of his mind. Furthermore, it seems like he's mostly concerned with appreciating what people love about the album and being grateful for it.

Unfortunately, many don't seem to vibe with the release, with the garage featured on the album cover being graffitied over. One rapper (and pop-punk dabbler) in particular even took shots at Jack Harlow during his latest freestyle: Machine Gun Kelly. However, as the 25-year-old hasn't addressed such occurrences, it seems like he's letting those blows brush off his shoulder. After all, given its surprise release and more focused vision, he indicated to his audience that number's weren't the name of the game this time.

Meanwhile, the "Blame On Me" MC recently launched his own foundation to give back to his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. As such, even if through a press release and an organization, he made it clear that he doesn't want to leave his roots in the dust. With other industry figures like DJ Drama supporting his vision, he's likely only going to go up from here. Regardless, keep checking in with HNHH for the latest news and updates on Jack Harlow.
