Last March, Kentucky rising star Jack Harlow delivered his latest EP Sweet Action, which saw seven hard-hitting tracks from the Generation Now/Atlantic-signed emcee. Now, one of the project’s biggest standouts, the Pooh Beatz and JetsonMade-produced “What’s Poppin,” gets a major upgrade with added features from DaBaby, Tory Lanez, and Lil Wayne. To the surprise of no one, the song’s guests compliment Harlow with some of the dopest bars spoken aloud this year, especially the ones from Tunechi:

“Uh, what’s brackin’? Brand new whip, new mansion, brand new tips, new dancers, same old d***, new Magnums/

Same old s***, new maggots, same old throne, new dragons, same old strong, new ashes, I could pass that b***h like Magic, yeah/

I ain’t cappin’, I’m lit, I’m active, yeah, lil’ five in that b***h like Paxson, yeah, gonna drown in this milk like Apple Jacks, I sell a b***h dreams, put tax on that.../

Jack Harlow’s been making music for the Black Lives Matter movement as well. Earlier this month, he dropped the “Only Way Freestyle,” which saw him speaking on the country’s current injustices over production from super-group StarGate:

“This is Chuck D, Public Enemy, this is not a fundraiser, this is real energy, this is not a token friendship, he is kin to me/

Don’t know how the f*** you think that this how it’s meant to be, pick a side, less tweets, more picket signs, spent the last two months bein’ told to get inside/

Now we all outside ‘cause we sick and tired, 2020 and it’s supposed to be a different time, but racism is alive, though they think it’s behind us/

Rest in peace to Breonna, we ain’t askin’ for the moon, just police to be honest, I don’t think it’s too much, these times got me thinkin’ too much.../”

Press play on both “What’s Poppin (Remix)” and — if you missed it — “Only Way Freestyle” below.
