Jack Harlow once said that it became harder for white rappers to feel welcome ever since the racial protests in 2020 began.

The Kentucky rapper is now talking about race again, this time with GQ and said he refuses to use being a white rapper as a gimmick.

“I have serious imposter syndrome the whole way through,” he explained. “And then you have to bounce with it and you feel like you are totally where you are supposed to be. Moments of self-doubt combined with moments of I am who I think I am. I think what has worked for me is that my music has never been about the fact that I am white. I don’t try to lean into the, ‘Hey, I’m the white boy.’ I try not to make it a novelty ... I rap from the heart, rather than trying to do a white version of the art form.”

Do you see Jack Harlow being in the game for a long time or no?
