Jack Harlow has fondly recalled late actor Lance Reddick, who he stars alongside in the new White Man Can’t Jump reboot.
On Friday (May 12), during an interview at the film’s premiere, the “First Class” rapper said that although his time with Reddick was limited, the actor was “an absolute pleasure” to work with.
“I got about two days on set with Lance,” Harlow told The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m so glad you brought the legend up. Rest in peace to Lance.”
Set to start streaming on Hulu on May 19, White Men Can’t Jump also stars Teyana Taylor, Laura Harrier, and Vince Staples. It was one of the last projects that Reddick worked on before his untimely death at the age of 60.
While Jack Harlow has gotten some early accolades for his role in White Men Can’t Jump, the “What’s Poppin'” rapper was also recently the subject of a brutal diss by Machine Gun Kelly.
On Saturday (May 6), the Cleveland-bred rapper/rockstar dropped “Renegade Freestyle” which could be in response to Harlow recently proclaiming that he’s “the hardest white boy” to pick up a microphone since Eminem.
While rocking a hat and no shirt, Machine Gun Kelly served up scathing bars on a silver platter in his homies’ backyard. He also made sure to throw a few shots toward Jack Harlow as well.
“Make sure there’s no confusions/ I’m a great white, I can eat these barracudas/ See who I am? You’re stupid, it’s nice to meet you/ I just put this hole in the ground for you like a soccer cleat shoe/ I see why they call you Jackman, you jacked man’s whole swag/ Give Drake his flow back, man, I eat rappers like Pac-Man,” he raps over the infectious beat.
Coincidentally, MGK chose to rap over “Renegade” which was produced by Eminem and Luis Resto and appears on JAY-Z’s 2001 classic album, The Blueprint.
In other Machine Gun Kelly news, he recently appeared alongside Cordae and freestyled over Central Cee’s viral hit “Doja.”
The original Central Cee anthem dropped in July of 2022 and instantly went viral on TikTok for its lyrics, including the oft-repeated: “How can I be homophobic? My bitch is gay.”
With a Lyrical Lemonade video, Central Cee then became the first UK artist to have a video directed by Cole Bennett, and rappers have since started taking the Eve-approved beat and dropped their own bars over it.
