In preparation for his upcoming project, Sweet Action, slated to drop this Friday, March 13, Jack Harlow just tore up a couple mics during freestyle sessions for the LA Leakers and Funx Flex.

The 21-year-old artist hailing from Louisville, KY, first stopped by Power 106 in Los Angeles and gifted the LA Leakers' Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk with rapid-fire bars based in his signature lighthearted yet pointed style. Eyes shut and fully locked in, Harlow reflects on tales of fast women, mansion parties and, of course, uncooked salmon. šŸ˜‚

"Said she like my chain, wanna rock it like Houston / Errybody boostin', errybody scammin' / Henny make me throw up like uncooked salmon," he goes.

Shortly after, Missionary Jack jetted across the country to link up with Hot 97 for his first-ever Funk Flex freestyle. Flanked by DJ Drama, co-founder of Generation Now, Harlow's label, as well as his homie Urban Wyatt, Harlow taps in and makes the most of the moment. Offering true to life lyrics over an unwavering beat, he even keeps pace after a brief break in the middle.

Taking note from Tyler, The Creator's iconic and hilariously awkward Funk Flex freestyle, Harlow makes a subtle effort to unsettle the legendary radio host. He raps, "I got tunnel vision, I got cash to make / She want pull up on me at the hotel / I be better off if I just masturbate."

Harlow has been riding some crazy momentum lately. His rambunctious single, "WHATS POPPIN," is pushing toward the mainstream, averaging almost 1 million streams per day on Spotify. It also debuted with a charismatic Lyrical Lemonade video, currently sitting at over 15 million views on YouTube.

While details on Sweet Action are scarce, Harlow has been spending a lot of time with Jetsonmade, the producer of DaBaby's "Suge" as well as "WHATS POPPIN," so it's likely he'll make an appearance in the credits.

Really looking forward to this tape. šŸŽÆ
