Druski on His Text Messages With Celebs Like Drake + Recent “Knowledgeable Conversation” With Jack Harlow
It’s no secret that Druski enjoys great relationships with some of today’s biggest celebrities, but you have to wonder what are they talking about when they’re on their break?
He tells us that if someone looks into their phone and sees what kind of conversations they have with their famous friends, you’ll most likely find a lot of “jokes.”
“A lot of jokes around me would see that I have with some of these people,” he told The Blast. “We like to joke around a lot and I have some good celebrity friends – super down to earth. For me, I like seeing the real person behind the screen, so I’m pretty close to them – lots of fun conversations, that’s is on.
He then recounts that one of the recent funny conversations he had was with Harlow, which he called “a good, knowledgeable conversation.”
Their budding friendship has been brewing for months and has even been discussed in Complex for their September cover. It all started when a fan met the 23-year-old rapper and told him how they “share the same bestie” in Druski. The comedian commented on his friendship with the 3x BET Award winner, telling the publication that they were on “two different paths in the same transition.”
“I think we share a lot of the same goals, just like,” Druski told Complex.
“So I think the biggest thing with us is just, I could talk to him, like, ‘Yo, so in this situation, how do I move on with this? And he’ll give me advice, like, ‘Yo, I just went through this.’ You know what I’m saying? I’m like, ‘Damn, I needed this.’ same person you started with – not necessarily who you started with, but we’re on two different paths, but we’re making the same transition.
Harlow commented on the friendship in the play, saying they both found they had “real ambitions”.
“We caught the world’s attention around the same time,” Harlow told the publication.
“While we were on that first bus tour, one thing we discovered about each other is that we both have real ambitions. We’re not people who fell there- in. We’re both very hungry. He has aspirations. I have aspirations. We spend time together. But when we’re apart, he works hard as hell wherever he wants. I do the same. And then we go back to each other like, “Yo, I did this. And we push each other. We just admire each other. We never force anything. Everything that’s happened for us on The internet is because we were just together at the time and the camera was rolling.

For every All-Star weekend, you definitely want to walk in the door swinging with your starting five – or you’re wrong. The same sensation told The Blast if the NBA allows him to have an All-Star team next year, who he would pick – and the team looks pretty solid.
“Certainly Jack Harlow will have to be playmaker,” he told us. “I have to have YK Osiris in the squad somewhere, either as a center or a playmaker. I should also have Petey Pablo in the team because it is a very respective name. And for the last two, I would say the Ying Yang Twins.
Interesting team for sure.
