Jack Harlow Defends Keeping Tory Lanez on ‘What’s Poppin’ Remix, Wishes Megan Thee Stallion Love and Respect

Jack Harlow is defending his decision to keep Tory Lanez on the “What’s Poppin” remix despite Tory’s shooting case in which he is accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, published on Wednesday (March 16), the 2020 XXL Freshman explained his decision of keeping both Tory Lanez and DaBaby on his “What’s Poppin'” remix despite the two rappers being embroiled in controversy.

For DaBaby, it was his controversial homophobic remarks he made at the 2020 Rolling Loud Festival in Miami in July of 2021 and in that same month, Tory’s shooting incident where he allegedly shot Megan in the foot during an argument in California.

According to the publication, Harlow was under pressure to remove both of them from the song but he felt it wasn’t necessary since the two incidents happened after they recorded the song together. Nevertheless, he wished Megan love and respect.

“I know I’m a good person,” he told Rolling Stone. “My character, my integrity are very important to me. And I think I’ve done such a good job that now I’m being forced to answer for other people’s actions.”

“It doesn’t feel right as a grown man to speak for other grown men all the time,” he continued. “One thing’s for sure, is that Megan got shot. And I wish her nothing but love and respect.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Jack Harlow acknowledged that he’s a White guy rapping in a Black genre and some people have questioned his presence in the genre. But the Louisville, Ky. native vowed to stay competitive and compared the rap industry to that of playing basketball, a game he’s an avid player in.

“There’s a competitive side to this, and honoring the competition makes it even more real and hip-hop,” he stated. “I’m saying, I love this shit so much that I’m gonna go out on that court and play as hard as you’re playing, and we’re not gonna discuss if it’s OK. Let’s play ball.”
