The body of work had little promotion and was announced just two days prior to its arrival. On the opening track, “Common Ground,” the 25-year-old rapper spits some bars about the reality of life in the suburbs:
“The suburbs are filled with ebonics and trap sonics, frat boys sayin’, ‘No cap, put racks on it’/ The dialect got a lil’ splash of some Black on it, cap and gowns bought by the money in dad’s pockets/ White girls squattin’ tryna get that a** poppin’, caught back-talkin’ to their mom and dads often/ Recitin’ rap lyrics about murder and cash profit, get to feel like a thug but don’t have to act on it/ Local homicide rates got ’em astonished, readin’ ’bout it on a laptop and pajamas”
In related news, Harlow made headlines back in March thanks to the exciting announcement of his official film debut. The Kentucky-raised star landed the lead role in 20th Century’s forthcoming reboot of White Men Can’t Jump, a well-loved classic about a privileged guy who ironically turns out to be the secret weapon in a basketball tournament. His rival-turned-friend is played by Sinqua Walls. The film is set to premiere on Hulu on May 19.
