Jack Harlow’s newest album Jackman, which was released last month, has gotten the attention of Machine Gun Kelly. On Harlow’s song “They Don’t Love It,” the rapper declared himself the “hardest white boy since the one who rapped about vomit and sweaters.”
Kelly decided to make a diss track using Jay-Z’s 2001 hit “Renegade.”
“I’m a great white I can eat these barracuda / See who I am? You’re stupid, it’s nice to meet you / I just put this hole in the ground for you like a soccer cleat shoe / I see why they call you Jackman, you jacked man’s whole swag / Give Drake his flow back, man, I eat rappers like Pac-Man / Must I regurgitate and show you who’s in my stomach / From the Last Dance? I battle rapped, no Instagrams,” raps Kelly.
Last year, Kelly said that he’s never “departed, left or switched” from rap despite going into punk and pop music recently.
“I’m talented as f— and I added on to my catalog of four great rap albums,” he said to The Hollywood Reporter last year. “So what I did was I added on, never departed, left or switched. Because in the same year I was the most viewed YouTube video putter-outer with all rap, which was my lockdown sessions, which gained more views than almost any of my other videos. And it was hundreds of millions of views of me rapping.”
Harlow hasn’t responded to Kelly’s diss.
Jackman came as a complete surprise to fans as Harlow announced the project just two days before the release date. The rapper named the album after his full first name, which is, in fact, Jackman. The project is only 24 minutes. It is the definition of a solo effort since the rapper did not have any featured artist on the album.
