LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Rapper Jack Harlow, a Louisville native, visited a local record store in the Clifton neighborhood on Sunday.

Guestroom Records on Frankfort Avenue hosted Harlow for an in-store appearance. Attendees were allowed to enter the store with the purchase of limited edition autographed CD of Harlow’s “Come Home the Kids Miss You” album.

Inside the store, Harlow met with fans, taking selfies and signing memorabilia. More than 1,000 fans showed up. 

Evan Olinger is a huge Jack Harlow fan – showing his appreciation for the Louisville rapper through his art – a colored pencil drawing that took him 10 hours.

“I would love to get it signed but if he wants it I would give it to him just because he is a huge inspiration to me and it would be really cool to have him own it,” said Olinger.

The line wrapped around the store and went for several blocks as some people waited for more than 24 hours to have the chance to meet Harlow.

Harlow arrived in a black SUV flanked by several security guards and quickly made his way through the screaming crowd directly into the store.

Prior to his signing Harlow spent the weekend in Louisville – hosting a Derby Eve party at the 21c Museum Hotel and doing the “Rider’s up” call for the 148th running of the Kentucky Derby.

Sunday, though, was all about the fans.

“I think we are all so proud. We are proud of Louisville, we’re proud of Jack, we’re proud of each other – it’s just a good day to be in Louisville,” said store manager Lisa Foster. 

Fans lined-up for blocks Sunday to meet rapper Jack Harlow. 

Harlow will also making appearances at Amoeba Hollywood, DTLR Camp Creek and Urban Outfitters Herald Square next month to celebrate the album.

The autographed CD had sold out online as of 3:15 p.m. Sunday.
