I’ve mentioned on more than one occasion before that Afrikaans zef rapper Jack Parow is a bit of a guilty indulgence for me. Seriously, earphones in, Jack Parow blasting, and me coding at the keyboard is a combination that is hard to beat! :)
For those of you not familiar with him, here is a quick write-up grabbed off electromode.co.za:
“Thirty three years ago, Zander Tyler was born in Parow, Cape Town. Today he is known as Jack Parow, original donker dodgy afrikaans rapper. Contrary to popular belief, his wild-fire success did not happen overnight. Jack started out rapping with crews from the Cape Flats and has been at it for thirteen years. It’s been almost six years since his breakthrough in 2009 and since Jack Parow has released his first self-titled full length album that struck gold within two weeks of its release and went platinum within a year; headlined at major festivals in South Africa; toured Europe and played before packed out shows there; and then followed it all up with another two seriously popular studio albums! His songs are hits on national radio stations and he has been on prime TV shows and on covers and centerfolds of publications in South Africa and in Europe.
Jack Parow’s self-titled debut album (2010) sold almost 45 000 units which made this sexy romantiese Afrikaans rapper a force to be reckoned with.”
Anyway, from his 2014 Nag Van Die Lang Pette album release, here is Jack Parow, featuring vocals from Nonku, with the brilliant “Ode To You”:
