“This ni**a can raaaaaaap bro And I’m saying ni**a as a compliment,” he wrote.
According to Ye, Jack is among today’s best MCs. “Top 5 out right now,” he added.
Upon hearing Ye’s praise, Harlow was overwhelmed with emotion.
“This right here…is one of the greatest moments of my entire life,” he tweeted. “Glad y’all all get front row seats to it…suddenly all the hate means nothing…imagine your hero saying this about you…I could cry.”

In an interview with British GQ, he spoke about Ye’s influence on the culture.
“I think he sees himself as Mozart or Beethoven,” he said. “I think he’s worried, not about what it looks like now but what it will look like in 100 years. Take what happened with the Taylor Swift situation: at the time it was all pitchforks, but now people treat that as iconic. I am always fascinated to see what he does next. This Donda roll-out, people are going to remember that for years.”
