"I don’t try to lean into the, 'Hey, I'm the white boy.' I try not to make it a novelty," he added. "I rap from the heart, rather than trying to do a white version of the art form."

Further, Jack discussed how he deals with impostor syndrome. The rapper said people need to bounce back from such an experience.
