Two Jack Harlow Poems

Read Reggie’s latest review on That’s What They All Say here.

Route 66

Bitch I’m from the ‘Nati
Cincinnati since my mama had me
Georgia bred my grandmammy
330 my granddaddy
Sitting through the drama
Since they really can’t stand me
They just don’t want to see my shine

We riding on Route 66
Bring 3 and we can 69
She say she is an angel
Heat things up and then it’s demon time
Our feigning minds
We are quite the pair
That’s why we a 2 of a kind

I’m a poet
Plant these seeds
And watch us grow it
Don’t blow it
That intellect
We inject
Into the world
We gotta show it
Don’t get exposed out here
You reap it
You sow it
Floating like a butterfly
Just know I ain’t the one to go toe to toe with

Keep It Light

I keep it light
From time to time
Since I could get heavy
You saw I bring too much emotion
Shit, have you met me
You look at the aesthetics
When knowledge is sexy
You gonna have to bring more to the table
If you wanna stand next to me

Most of you can’t even stand up to me
My life so far has been a luxury
Been Elmer’s glue since kindergarten
Thankful for the ones that stuck with me
Lucky me
And that’s more than March 17
I’m doing this a way that people ain’t never seen

I keep it 100
No one less than 99
I’m not taking anything that I can’t sign
And what I mean is on the dotted line
And I’m a keep going until the end of time
