Jack Harlow drops video for 'Churchill Downs featuring Drake'

'Cause I'm done being extra with the extroverts. The label used to wonder how I'm supposed to stand next to Vert. Probably never thought that I would get these legs to work. I work hard, but hard shit don't need no extra work. That's why I show up in a sweatshirt and let it burn. The world's mine, I just say, "F*ck it, let it turn."The girl's mine, I just say, "Fuck it, have a turn."The G.O.A.Ts call me to the side like, "Can we have a word?" I could've fronted but I did this shit how I preferred

Today, June 1st, the much awaited video for 'Churchill Downs featuring Drake' dropped and its a real smooth visual.

The video takes place at the Churchill Downs near Louisville, Kentucky, Jack's home city. It is the home to the biggest annual horse race to take place in the United States, the Kentucky Derby, and has been held at Churchill Downs since 1875.

'Churchill Downs' is one of the most talked about songs on the album. You have to. Especially when you have Drake's always elevating bars on top of an intensely

straightforward beat produced by Boi-1da. The way the two rappers flow from one to the other is easy on the ears and satisfying. Jack Harlow talks about the doubt around his come-up while Drake talks to and about rivals and the difficulty he experiences with his fame.

Jack Harlow's album "Come Home the Kids Miss You" dropped on May 6th.

Though the album was presented with mixed reviews, surprisingly a lot of them negative, the album is a really good effort from rapper Jack Harlow. It presents a mix of different vibes and carries evenly from smooth tracks to upbeat trap tracks.

In an interview with the Breakfast Club, Jack Harlow said he was devastated when the song was leaked a couple weeks prior. "That's one of my idols... I just wanted to control that moment as best I could."

He says that Drake bodied his bars and that he eventually went back and added a few of his own to make things feel more even. When asked if he found it disrespectful for Drake to go so crazy on his song he says he takes it as a sign of respect because, "it's like you activated me... you pushed me into this space. I don't know how i could ever feel disrespected... Some of his bars meant so much to me... I could tell he was tipping his hat to me."
