I am a big fan of his music and hope that some of you that do not like his music at least find his lyrics to be funny as sh-it.
Check out Jack Parow - official music video Hosh Tokolosh.
Jack Parow Dangerously Romantic Afrikaans Rapper
I was really drunk and was watching Pirates of the Caribbean and I said: "Fuck Jack Sparrow the pirate of the Caribbean, I'm Jack Parow, pirate of the caravan park." Jack Parow
A brief history.
Twenty-eight years ago, Zan der 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 nine years.
He studied to be a mechanic, but had to take jobs like packing fish in Cape Town harbour and allocated graves for the Cemetery Division of the Cape Town municipality to support his rap habit. Performing only for a beer and pizza soon changed, when his collaboration with Die Heuwels Fantasties on the track, Die Vraagstuk, put him in the limelight.
It's been almost two 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. His music video for the hit Cooler as Ekke has over 1 million views on YouTube. His songs are hits on national radio stations and he has been on prime TV shows and on covers and centre-folds of publications in South Africa and in Europe.
Jack Parow released an EP in December 2009. It was released on a USB flash drive in the shape of an ice-cream, and featured 10 songs as well as 6 music videos, only 600 of these flash drives were produced. They were sold out instantly.
