In a Q&A alongside his mentor DJ Drama, Harlow named off Drake, Eminem, JAY-Z, Andre 3000 and Lil Wayne as his biggest inspirations in hip-hop.

“It’s always such pressure. I want to go so far with this – the pressure’s already there but it’s created by myself. I always know what I want to do next – I like to evolve. If you listen to my music from two years ago, three years ago, I’ve come a long way. [Rap influences?] Drake. Andre 3000. Wayne. Eminem. JAY. [I’ve worked with] Wayne – one other one is coming up. One I listed is coming up.”

Quavo + Jack Harlow = Hoop Duo
Four of hip-hop’s top hoopers shared the court in a 2-on-2 game during the NBA’s All-Star Weekend in Atlanta several weekends ago. Southern stalwarts Quavo and Jack Harlow faced 2 Chainz and Lil Baby, and the Migos member predicted his side is getting the W.
Quavo (who won MVP of the 2018 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game) thinks he and Jack Harlow (who showed a little bit of his skills in the “Tyler Herro” video) will definitely beat 2 Chainz (who’s 6-foot-5 and played college ball) and Lil Baby in Bleacher Report’s Open Run game on March 6. Quavo bet big on himself and it paid off, as they won 21-7.
“Those are four good guys on one court — that’s gonna be fire. We the best two that’s gon’ win. You know anyone with me is going to win. Let’s get it. I hope they bring their A-game.”
