Kentucky native and aspiring rapper Jack Harlow burst onto the scene in January 2020 with the instant hit “What’s Poppin.” Since then, his star power has only grown. But unfortunately, Harlow’s meteoric rise to fame has been met with its fair share of scandal.
As reported by TMZ, the young hip-hop artist found himself in the middle of a fatal shooting while partying at a nightclub in his home state. In the exclusively obtained video, the young rapper ran for cover as shots rang out. It was later reported that Harlow’s DJ Ronnie Luciano was responsible for the fatal filming that killed 37-year-old Kasmira Nash, according to Variety. Following Luciano’s indictment, Harlow released a statement condemning the violence. “My heart is broken by the events that transpired over the Derby weekend. My heart breaks for Kasmira, her children and everyone else affected by this tragic death,” he wrote on his Instagram story. “Nothing can undo what happened. Too many lives have been changed forever. My life will continue to be dedicated to making Louisville a better place,” the rapper vowed. The singer then stopped performing at the Preakness Live concert.
One has to wonder how such an event could affect Harlow’s career or his bank account. After the jump, read on to learn how much it’s worth today.
Jack Harlow is worth so much
Jack Harlow is worth an estimated $4 million. But how does the 23-year-old choose the money he makes?
Harlow’s developed a penchant for expensive jewelry, including a set of 14k white gold championship rings said to be worth a whopping $110,000 per Hypebeast. But that’s not all. Harlow is also reported to be a sucker for a good pair of shoes. During an interview with HighSnobiety, Harlow confessed to owning a few pairs of…New Balances. huh! “New Balance wasn’t a popular shoe in Kentucky when I was in high school,” Harlow explained. “I wanted to rock something that other kids didn’t wear and the comfort of the shoe was always there. I always loved how simple the logo was and it just felt iconic to me. I wore them so much that people started associating the brand with me,” he continued. He owns 40 to 50 pairs per point of sale. And the famous shoe company chose to make him their official spokesman – which can only mean one thing: more moolah for Harlow. And probably more New Balances!
“In first grade, I wrote personal narratives and persuasive letters,” Harlow told GQ in 2020. [credibility] is a requirement for success, but it’s important to me. ”
