Kentucky rapper Jack Harlow is super focused to win in 2021. The hip-hop star has stepped up to dish on his state of mind and how he’s sticking to a non-alcoholic lifestyle all year long.
Jack Harlow’s Staying Alcohol-Free
Harlow hit up his Instagram page to reveal the major revelation. While revealing he doesn’t smoke – at all – Jack admitted going the liquor-free approach has him hungrier than ever in life.
“Haven’t had a single sip of alcohol in 2021. Going the rest of the year without it. Maybe I’ll never take another sip, who knows? My favorite vice was definitely drinking (I don’t like to smoke) but if I learned anything this year it’s that I don’t need it. I don’t usually say a lot in my captions because it feels like anything worth telling y’all I should just put in my songs…but today felt like a good time for a life update. I’m really grateful for how far we’ve come and I want you to know I appreciate all of you. But I’m hungrier right now than I’ve ever been. I’m prepared to become a well-oiled machine to take this shit to the next level. See you soon.”
The groundbreaking life update sparked a major co-sign from Harlow’s “Industry Baby” collaborator Lil Nas X in the comments section.
