Many people are perplexed about Jack Harlow’s height; this aspect of the popular rapper remains mysterious.


For a long time and even to this day, Jack Harlow’s stature has been the subject of dispute. Certain sources indicate the brilliant rapper is 5’9″, while other outlets cite 6’3″. So, what’s the real deal?

The basic response is that nobody knows where the 5’9″ assumption comes from. This was further compounded at the 2022 Met Gala when Jack Harlow was seen standing above many celebrities. This led his followers to doubt the original height estimates of 5’9″ for Harlow.

It is quite evident that Jack Harlow does not tower like other iconic basketball players like Shaquille O’Neal, yet he is not petite either. In actuality, he seems to stand closer to 6’3″ rather than 5’9″.

Viewing his video for “Nail Tech” (assuming you can handle the soundtrack) showcases his apparent elevation, appearing to be taller in many of the shots.

Jack Harlow’s height is highlighted in his Industry Baby video, featuring Lil Nas X. The Sun reported that Lil Nas X stands around 6’1″ to 6’2″, giving an indication of Harlow’s size when standing side-by-side with him.

It is evident that Lil Nas X and Harlow have the same height, the latter being only marginally taller due to his hair. Consequently, the assumed 5’9″ height seems to be incorrect.

On the other hand, it is worth noting that filmmakers in Hollywood have found numerous ways to make actors appear taller than they are.

Jack Harlow has been chosen as the lead role of Woody Harrelson’s part in the remake of the iconic movie, White Men Can’t Jump.

Jack Harlow’s Height

Renowned actor Woody Harrelson rose to stardom with his unforgettable performance as Billy Hoyle in Ron Shelton’s 1992 box office hit, White Men Can’t Jump.

Opposite Harrelson’s Hoyle was Wesley Snipes’ Sidney Deane, the two portraying two basketball hustlers who initially attempted to outsmart one another before ultimately joining forces to take on a more rewarding challenge.

Rising star Jack Harlow is now set to appear in a remake of the same film, taking on the same role that Harrelson was so famous for.

Harlow will be joined by Sinqua Walls (Friday Night Lights, Power, The Secret Life of an American Teenager), as the film is set to bring to life a fresh, modern interpretation of the classic plot.

Producers Blake Griffin, Ryan Kalil and Noah Weinstein, under the banner of their company Mortal Media, are reimagining the 1992 cult classic White Men Can’t Jump for the screen, with a screenplay penned by Kenya Barris and Doug Hall.

The narrative follows Kamal Walls, a young man whose destiny to emulate his renowned NBA father was ruined by his missteps and fury.

Kamal spots a simple victory when hipster Jeremy Harlow challenges him to a shoot-out, only to come to the revelation that Jeremy is another individual who let his ambition slip away.

The level of similarity Calmatic, the director of the House Party remake, chooses to stick to the original Ron Shelton movie remains to be determined.

It is especially impressive that Harlow, a rapper with no prior acting experience (apart from his music videos) was able to capture the attention of producers, Calmatic and Barris, with his very first audition. Furthermore, Harlow’s skill at the Celebrity Game during NBA’s All-Star Weekend served as further proof of his capabilities.


Jack Harlow’s elevation had not yet attained its current fame, and few could have blamed Scott Foster – a NBA referee – if he were as bewildered as he was earlier this year.

His confusion had gone viral, his query to his colleague Ed Malloy simply asking, “Who is Jack Harlow?” A legitimate query, the microphone catching Foster and Malloy, and Malloy’s honest response being “I have no idea.”

Jack Harlow was in attendance at the Celtics-Bucks game, and upon pointing him out to Malloy, Foster uttered “He’s the guy over here, right here… He’s in that white shirt, behind you.” In response, Malloy posed the question, “Yeah, who is he?” to which Foster replied with a suggestion to go ask him.

When Jack Harlow heard the exchange, his humorous nature took over as he jokingly replied on Twitter. He was alluding to the numerous comments about his resemblance to Mr. Tumnus from the movie The Chronicles of Narnia:

The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Foster and Malloy couldn’t be blamed for not knowing Harlow since his music style doesn’t fit their genre and his height is inconsequential to them. Despite this, the amusing back-and-forth created some amusement.

Soon, with White Men Can’t Jump coming out either in cinemas or on streaming services, one can finally make an informed decision on Jack Harlow’s height.

Until now, Jack Harlow’s presence is seen through many videos and his two albums. That’s What They All Say, released in 2020, was his debut album, and Come Home the Kids Miss You, which was released in May 2022, was his second. As his fan base grows, so does his notoriety.
