“Yeah yeah he cool,” Jackson replied. He went on to describe Harbaugh comparing himself to Ravens in the weight room.

“When I was growing up, the barbershop is the first place I ever heard real, open dialogue about things that were going on. It’s the place where my community could come together and be real,” James said to The Hollywood Reporter. “That’s why we created The Shop, where people from all walks of life can come together as a community to have honest discussions about important topics.”
Musician and actor Donald Glover and Colombian reggaeton star J. Balvin are also guests of the fifth season.
Former guests include former US President Barack Obama, rapper Drake, California Gov. Gavin Newsom and LA Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.MORE NEWS: Baltimore Police Stepping Up Deployment On Fourth Of July Weekend, Commissioner Says
