Harlow, the rapper who started viral since the first video titled "Dark Knight" in 2017 was finally watched 7.5 million times. The First Class singer has perfected the art of building a career on social media. He released his debut studio album in December 2020 and all tickets for his 2021 shows were sold out. He has worked over $1 million merchandise. He's also been giving back, raising more than $1 million to nonprofits and the Louisville-based HBCU. "I could make a million hits, but it's not worth going home and saying, 'I want to lift you up with me,'" she said.


"There's a lot of great night scenes, and there's a lot of Instagram stars around here, so there's a bit of a bougie factor, but I'm loving it now. This is the best place for me to be. It's a place where you can actually work, and don't have the same distractions as many other cities." Say Harlow when you first moved to Atlanta to focus more on focus.


At the age of 12, he started recording his own rhymes through his Guitar Hero microphone and laptop. Lots of sense. He teamed up with a friend and even made a CD called Rippin' and Rappin' which he sold at his high school (secondary here in NZ) for $2 a pop. And now, he has entered the Forbes 30 Under 30 list.


*****


Harlow, rapper yang mulai viral sejak video pertamanya bertajuk “Dark Knight” pada tahun 2017 kini akhirnya ditonton 7,5 juta kali. Pelantun “First Class” tersebut telah menyempurnakan seni membangun karier di media sosial. Dia merilis album studio debutnya pada bulan Desember 2020 dan semua tiket pertunjukan tur di 2021-nya terjual habis. Dia telah memindahkan lebih dari $ 1 juta barang dagangan. Dia juga sudah memberi kembali, mengumpulkan lebih dari $1 juta untuk organisasi nirlaba dan HBCU yang berbasis di Louisville. "Saya bisa membuat sejuta lagu hit, tapi itu tidak sebanding dengan pulang ke rumah dan berkata, 'Saya ingin mengangkat Anda bersama saya,'" katanya.


“Ada adegan kehidupan malam yang besar, dan ada banyak bintang Instagram di sekitar sini, jadi ada sedikit faktor bougie, tapi saya menyukainya sekarang. Ini adalah tempat terbaik bagi saya untuk menjadi. Ini adalah tempat di mana Anda benar-benar dapat bekerja, dan tidak memiliki gangguan yang sama seperti banyak kota lain.” Ucap Harlow ketika pertama kali pindah ke Atlanta untuk lebih fokus ke karirnya.


Pada saat 12 tahun, dia mulai merekam sajaknya sendiri melalui mikrofon Guitar Hero dan laptopnya. Banyak akal. Dia bekerja sama dengan seorang teman dan bahkan membuat CD berjudul Rippin 'dan Rappin' yang dia jual salinannya di sekolah menengahnya (menengah di sini di NZ) seharga $2 per pop. Dan sekarang, dia telah masuk kedalam list Forbes 30 Under 30.
