We're only a few days into March and Jack Harlow is already on a hot streak.

The Louisville rapper dropped a video for "Route 66" - filmed at the iconic Churchill Downs horse racing track – with one of his favorite hometown collaborators, EST Gee, who also has a new smash with Lil Baby, before scoring a couple of buckets on Lil Durk during a 3-on-3 game.

To keep the W's coming, Drake and Kendrick Lamar are showing him love, but the way it's happening has Jack mad confused.

One of Jack's very first music videos from his grade school days started making the rounds after he shared a clip of the song, seemingly titled "Das Me," and confessed, "Still some of the realest s**t I ever wrote."

Bars! He raps, "So don't get mad if you try to text Jack and he doesn't text back / I mean, I'm sorry, I wish I could make it to your birthday party."

Well, Drake commented on a repost of the video, "Hardddddddd," while Kendrick liked Jack's original tweet – the first tweet he's liked in over a year. Jack wondered on his IG Story, "So this is what it takes for the great ones to recognize my work ?"

It's the first time they've publicly acknowledged the 22-year-old, though Jack revealed to The Recording Academy that he's met Drizzy "once or twice" and that he's "listening" and "had some kind words."

All grown up: Get a firsthand look at just how much Jack has progressed since his "Das Me" days by checking out his debut Tiny Desk Concert.
