Jack Parow has come a long way from the rapper in the caravan park. He’s got this second album, PAROW braai sous, a clothing line, and a soon to be released badass jewellery line. So what’s this dude doing exactly? Well, I’ll have the second album speak for itself.
Eksie Ou is in a class of it’s own. While you can still hear the resemblance of the first album, the improvement of the lyrics, tracks, & mixing is very evident, making the album full of potential singles.
With colaborations with Pierre Greeff of Die Heuwels Fantasties, Francois van Coke of Van Coke Kartel, David Kramer, Gazelle, and PH Fat, these tracks give off a hard party, a laugh, and lethargic memories of an 80’s/90’s kid.
Expect lyrics like ‘As jy van die liedjie hou, p*** vir Nicholas Louw’, ‘Jack Parow: die Bear Grylls van braai’, ‘Jack Parow het ‘n lekker penis’, you know, the usual Jack Parow really.
There were one or two tracks that I don’t really like, but personal favourites would be ‘Biltong en Biscuits’ with David Kramer, ‘Welkom Terug’ with Pierre Greeff, ‘Katerien’, and of course, ‘Laat Ons Suip!
If you don’t do heavy foul language, I’d give the album a pass, but if you’re an avid parow fan I’m asking why you haven’t pre-ordered your copy and stocked up on your parowsous yet??
Overall, I give the album a really high 4 out 5 stars.
