Harlow recently praised Nas for being a positive role model for the younger generation during an interview with Variety.
“I think he’s giving a voice to a lot of people and kids who could use one,” Harlow told the outlet. “I think the community he represents could use someone who’s succeeding on a mainstream level — where it can feel like, ‘Yo, you can be No. 1. You can be the greatest.’ I really recognize what he’s doing and I admire him. I admired him long before we met.”
Nas’ highly anticipated debut album, Montero, is set to release later this week on September 17.
