Jack Harlow got a letter from Louisville mayor Greg Fischer in which he formally declared December 18th as “Jack Harlow Day”!
“For answering, once and for all, that what’s poppin’ is Louisville when it comes to talent that makes it bigger than big, but doesn’t forget the “home” in hometown or homegrown,” the letter read. “The rapper’s way with words and beats has earned him untold fans, chart-topping releases and an ability to give back in meaningful ways, and he does.”
Harlow has spent a lot of time to help his hometown by partnering with KFC, to donate over $200,000 to the American Red Cross to aid with Kentucky’s tornado relief.
“Growing up I always dreamed of being that guy who would put Kentucky on the map in the music scene,” Harlow said in a statement. “But to team up with an iconic national staple like KFC, the biggest brand to come out of Kentucky, is truly an honor. I’m looking forward to all the amazing things we’re about to do together.”
Harlow also donated to five Louisville based organizations: AMPED, the Center for Women and Families, Grace James Academy, Louisville Urban League, and Metro United Way.
