Jack Harlow, KFC partner to donate $250,000 to help Kentucky tornado victims

The Grammy-nominated rapper is no stranger to giving back and he, along with KFC are coming together to help families devastated by the December 11 tornadoes.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — “No Place Like Home” – it’s the name given to rapper Jack Harlow’s series of hometown concerts following his sold-out Crème de la Crème tour, and it also symbolizes his love for Louisville and the state of Kentucky.

Harlow, who is no stranger to giving back, is pairing up with KFC and their parent company, Yum! Brands to make a combined $250,000 donation to the American Red Cross to support communities affected by the deadly tornadoes in Western Kentucky.

"Growing up, I always dreamed of being that guy who would put Kentucky on the map in the music scene. But to team up with an iconic national staple like KFC, the biggest brand to come out of Kentucky, is truly an honor. I'm looking forward to all the amazing things we're about to do together," Harlow said in a statement.

Two other shows will feature a giant “KFC Bucket Boombox” that will play Harlow’s chart-toppers outside of the venues.
