The 24-year-old rapper, songwriter, and record producer Jack Harlow has enthralled the music industry. Harlow has steadily moved up the charts with songs like What’s Poppin and its remix featuring the rappers Tory Lanez, DaBaby, and Lil Wayne, which benefited greatly from its TikTok fame.
However, there is one aspect about the well-known rapper that continues to baffle people. Specifically, what is Jack Harlow’s height?
JACK HARLOW IS EITHER 5’9” OR 6’3”
The debate over Jack Harlow’s height has persisted for a very long time and continues to this day. According to some sources, the gifted rapper is a full 5’9″. According to some sources, Jack Harlow is a towering 6’3″. What gives, then?
Nobody actually knows what’s going on, or at least where the 5’9″ factor comes into play, is the straightforward response to that query. Jack Harlow’s height during the 2022 Met Gala came under scrutiny because he was pictured with a variety of different stars and celebrities, many of whom he towered over. Many admirers were left inquiring as to Harlow’s exact height because they believed him to be 5’9″.
Naturally, if you’ve seen Jack Harlow, you’ll notice right away that he doesn’t stand out in the height department like some notable basketball players like Shaquille O’Neal, but the man is not short. According to all appearances, Jack Harlow is substantially shorter than the 6’3″ average height, standing at only 5’9″. If you can bear the music, watch his movie Nail Tech. In some of the views, he clearly appears to be on the taller side of the ledger.
If seeing Jack Harlow’s Industry Baby video doesn’t help you understand his height, perhaps watching that one would. In it, Lil Nas X and Harlow work together, and at one point the two are standing side by side. The Sun claims that Lil Nas X can reach a height of 6’1″ or 6’2″.
In the video, it is evident that Lil Nas X and Harlow are nearly the same height, with Lil Nas X’s hairstyle providing him a tiny height edge. The 5’9″ estimate appears to be completely inaccurate. There are, of course, always ways to make actors appear taller than they actually are, and Hollywood has done this a lot.
JACK HARLOW IS THE NEW WOODY HARRELSON IN THE WHITE MEN CAN’T JUMP REMAKE
Almost all of you are familiar with Woody Harrelson. The 61-year-old actor has appeared in a number of well-known movies (Natural Born Killers, Zombieland, The People vs. Larry Flynt) and television shows (Cheers, True Detective), but one of his most well-known performances came in 1992 when he played Billy Hoyle opposite Sidney Deane’s character, played by Wesley Snipes, in the hit film White Men Can’t Jump. The movie featured the tale of two basketball hustlers who initially compete with one another before deciding to work together to win a bigger prize.
In the remake of White Men Can’t Jump, Jack Harlow will now make his feature film debut, taking up the character Woody Harrelson made so well-known. Actor Sinqua Walls will be Jack Harlow’s opponent, therefore his height will be prominently displayed (Friday Night Lights, Power, The Secret Life of an American Teenager). Despite being referred to as a remake, the plot sounds like it will be different from the original.
The movie White Men Can’t Jump was written by Kenya Barris and Doug Hall, and it is being produced by the Mortal Media firm, which was founded by NBA player Blake Griffin, former NFL tackle Ryan Kalil, and Noah Weinstein. The narrative centres on a young guy named Kamal (Walls), who was expected to follow in the shoes of his NBA great father, but whose destiny was altered by a string of poor decisions and an anger management problem. Kamal sees an easy target when hipster white lad Jeremy (Harlow) dares him to a shooting, but he soon learns that Jeremy is another man who failed to accomplish his dreams.
We’ll have to wait and see how closely filmmaker Calmatic (of the House Party remake) sticks to the original Ron Shelton film. The co-lead part of Harlow is impressive because the well-known rapper has never before auditioned for a role in acting (though he has appeared in countless music videos). However, he impressed producers Calmatic and Barris at his first audition. It helped that Harlow had already demonstrated his talent by participating in the Celebrity Game at the NBA All-Star Weekend.
NBA REFEREES HAVE NO IDEA WHO HE IS

Many people wouldn’t be at blame if they were as confused as NBA referee Scott Foster, who earlier this year went viral for merely asking the question, “Who is Jack Harlow?” before Jack Harlow’s height became such a hot topic. It happened during a Boston Celtics-Milwaukee Bucks playoff game, and many people considered it to be a valid query. Foster and his companion Ed Malloy both responded, “I have no idea,” as they were unaware that their microphones were still on.
Foster was able to identify Harlow after the game, telling Malloy, “He’s the guy over here, right here…
Behind you, he is wearing that white shirt. Yes, who is he? Malloy then inquired in response to this, to which Foster responded, “I don’t know. Please ask him.
Neither did, but when Jack Harlow overheard the conversation, his humorous side came out and he took to Twitter to assist the perplexed NBA referees. Regarding the many people who have claimed Harlow resembled Mr. Tumnus from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, Harlow responded to the video clip, “Clearly these mfs have never seen Narnia.” The complete conversation is seen below.
Foster and Malloy can’t be held responsible for not knowing Jack Harlow. They are most likely not interested in Jack Harlow’s height because his music isn’t relevant to their interests. But you have to admit, that back-and-forth was fairly funny.
You will soon get the opportunity to judge Jack Harlow’s height for yourself when White Men Can’t Jump is released in theatres or on streaming services.
In the meantime, you can watch one of his several movies and listen to his two CDs, That’s What They All Say (issued in 2020) and Come Home the Kids Miss You (released in May 2022). Both Jack Harlow’s fame and height are still increasing.
