Early Life and Education
Born on March 13, 1998, in Louisville, Kentucky, Jackman Thomas Harlow emerged into the world. His parents are Maggie (née Payette), a businesswoman, and Brian Harlow.
He grew up on a horse farm near Shelbyville and shared his upbringing with a younger brother named Clayborn Harlow. With ancestral roots tracing back to French and Irish heritage, he embodies a diverse lineage.
During his childhood, Harlow transitioned from Shelbyville to Louisville alongside his family. His foray into rap began at the tender age of 12.
Alongside his friend Copelan Garvey, they harnessed a Guitar Hero microphone and a laptop to capture their rhymes and compositions.
The result was a CD titled “Rippin’ and Rappin’,” which they sold within the confines of their school, Highland Middle School. In the seventh grade, Harlow upgraded to a professional microphone, creating his debut mixtape, “Extra Credit,” under the pseudonym Mr. Harlow.

Benefiting from its TikTok-driven popularity and subsequently enhanced by a remix featuring DaBaby, Tory Lanez, and Lil Wayne, the track soared to number two on the US Billboard Hot 100.
The song’s success even secured it a Grammy Award nomination. Before the launch of his debut studio album, “That’s What They All Say” (2020), which went on to achieve platinum certification in the US, Harlow found his place in XXL magazine’s “2020 Freshman Class.”
In 2021, Harlow joined forces with Lil Nas X for the collaboration “Industry Baby,” which seized the number one spot on the Hot 100 chart, marking Harlow’s inaugural chart-topping achievement.
The following year, 2022, saw the release of Harlow’s second album, “Come Home, the Kids Miss You,” featuring the single “First Class.” The latter song marked his second number one on the Hot 100 and the first to debut at the pinnacle of the chart.
