Dave is one of the hottest shows on television. Starring, and loosely based on the life of, rapper David “Lil Dicky” Burd, the series has been a smash hit for FX. The currently airing Season 3, which holds a 100% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, follows Dave’s first major breakout in the music world. He’s been touring, met Rick Ross, and also fallen in love.
However, a cameo that many people were looking forward to was that of Jack Harlow. Harlow and Burd have long been compared to one another, both in terms of musical content and physical appearance. While Harlow’s appearance on the show is small, it’s memorable for tapping into exactly everyone about their non-existent beef.
Jack Harlow And Dave Feud At The Met Gala
Harlow appeared in the latest episode of Dave, May 17’s Met Gala. As can be inferred from the title, the episode is centered around Dave’s first appearance at the Met Gala. There he runs into Harlow, and the pair have a hilarious, and meta, argument.
Harlow: My name’s Jack, what’s your name?
Harlow: What’s your name?
Dicky: Like my legal government name? ‘Cause I know you know my artist name. The whole reason that you’re even here is because I came first. Look at how you’ve modeled your whole physicality. I mean, surely you must hear it a lot.
Harlow: I do know you who you are. You’re actually the worst thing that’s ever happened to my career.
Dicky: Hard to compete.
Harlow: Being asscociated with you at all is….It’s tough, I can’t lie. But, I get through it, as you can see.
Dicky: It’s hard to be asscoiated with this level of art.
Harlow: It’s a breeze at the end of the day.
[both laugh as Harlow touches Dave’s outfit]
Dicky: Don’t touch. You can look but don’t touch.
Harlow: I’d rather touch almost.
Dicky: I’ll give it to you, you got hot.
Harlow: Some people wanna be hot, some people don’t. I get it.
Dicky [mimicking Harlow]: “Oooh, I put earrings in.” [In regular voice] If I wore those, I’d look like a woman.
[Harlow begins sniffing Dave]
Dicky: What are you doing?
Harlow: Mmm. You stink, bitch. I like that. [Harlow walks away and scoffs at Dave] Got beef? [Harlow grabs his crotch] ‘Cause I got a whole slab. [Harlow scoffs again before walking away] Pussy.
Dave Season 3, Episode 8, “Met Gala”
It’s a hilarious commentary on the similarities between the artists. Furthermore, it’s a creative imagining of the lengths their beef could go to if the pair were actively feuding. It’s unknown if Harlow will reappear in the show, but he’s definitely set himself up for some sort of villain arc if he does. However, what did you think of Harlow’s cameo, let us know in the comments.
