Popularity has increased for Herro over the last couple of months, and even the rapper Jack Harlow decided to drop a song honoring the Wisconsin-made, titled 'Tyler Herro'.

“My homeboy Tyler, he play in South Beach. He told me this summer he gon’ fix my jumper,” Harlow rapped.
Both Harlow's and Herro's come-up has been similar. This year, the rapper was named an XXL Freshman, award handed to the best up and coming rap artists. On the other hand, Herro averaged 13.5 points and 4.1 rebounds per game during the regular season for the Heat. His Miami jersey was also the top-selling jersey in the NBA during the 2020 Playoffs.
Both of them have been spotted hanging out multiple times. Herro attended the University of Kentucky, while Harlow was born in Louisville.
Harlow made himself the talk of the NBA while the season restart in Orlando. The rapper from Kentucky photographed Clippers' Lou Williams at an Atlanta gentleman’s club, while he was on an excused absence from the Walt Disney World complex.
The song also marks Harlow’s first solo release since his chart-topping remix of his breakout hit “WHATS POPPIN”.
