New music caught the eye and ear of Kanye West on Friday (February 18). In the midst of him flooding Instagram, Yeezy gave a special stamp of approval to Jack Harlow and his Boi-1da-produced “Nail Tech” single while deeming him to be “Top 5” in Hip Hop right now.
“This nigga can raaaaaaap bro And I’m saying nigga as a compliment Top 5 out right now,” Ye wrote.
With Kanye being one of Harlow’s rap idols, the heartwarming compliment meant a great deal and he called it “one of the greatest moments” of his life to date.
“This right here…is one of the greatest moments of my entire life,” he wrote. “Glad y’all all get front row seats to it…suddenly all the hate means nothing…imagine your hero saying this about you…I could cry.”

Confidence was already a department Missionary Jack didn’t lack in and with the Ye co-sign, his stock price is only going to continue to soar through the roof heading into his sophomore album.
Back in December, Harlow confirmed he never met Kanye but if he did, he would thank him for all of the inspiration over the years.
“That’s what of my bucket list ones,” he told Extra. “That’s one of the few idols of mine I still haven’t met.”
