Aspiring rapper and Kentucky native Jack Harlow first came to prominence in January 2020 with the instant hit “What’s Poppin”. Since then, his star power has continued to grow. But alas, Harlow’s meteoric rise to fame has been met with a fair share of scandal.
As reported by TMZ, the young hip-hop artist found himself in the middle of a fatal shooting while partying at a nightclub in his home state. In the exclusively obtained video, the young rapper is seen running for cover as shots rang out. Later, it was reported that Harlow’s DJ, Ronnie Luciano, was responsible for the fatal shooting of 37-year-old Kasmira Nash, according to Variety. Following Luciano’s indictment, Harlow released a statement condemning the violence. “My heart is broken by the events that occurred over the Derby weekend. My heart breaks for Kasmira, her children and everyone else affected by this tragic death,” he wrote on his Instagram story. “Nothing can reverse what has happened. Too many lives have been changed forever. My life will remain committed to making Louisville a better place,” the rapper promised.
