Referencing an iconic line in Eminem’s 2002 song ‘Lose Yourself’, Harlow raps on the first verse of his new cut: “Ya boy’s strivin’ to be the most dominant ever / The hardest white boy since the one who rapped about vomit and sweaters / And hold the comments ‘cause I promise you I’m honestly better than whoever came to your head right then.”
At the time of writing, Eminem has not yet responded to Harlow’s diss. The latter had previously made it known that he was a fan of Eminem’s, saying in a 2021 interview with Pitchfork that he considers the 8 Mile heavyweight to be an “icon”.

‘They Don’t Love It’ appears on Harlow’s just-released third album ‘Jackman’, which arrived on Friday (April 28) just two days after it was announced. It’s the follow-up to his Grammy-nominated 2022 album ‘Come Home The Kids Miss You’, and comes ahead of his starring role in a new remake of White Men Can’t Jump. That will stream on Hulu in the US (and Disney+ internationally) on May 19.
