Jack Parow has just kicked things into top gear! A week or so ago, Parow released his minty fresh, tons of fun, catchier than ever single and music video, “Never Gonna Grow Up” (featuring Riky Rick), while on tour in Europe and a few other things are also on the horizon…
Six years ago a skollie rapper from Bellville put out his self-titled debut album and shook the local music scene alive again with his colourful raps and next-level tunes. He quickly became known as South Africa’s infamous Dangerous Romantic Afrikaans Rap Extravaganza or just Jack Parow with one ‘r’. The album struck gold within two weeks of its release and went platinum within a year. The break-out single “Cooler as Ekke” has since been watched over 3 million times on YouTube.
The album also featured the first collaboration with Francois Van Coke on the popular “Dans Dans Dans” and the hit “Tussen Staties” featuring Die Heuwels Fantasties. To celebrate this ground-breaking hip hop record a limited amount of vinyls have been pressed.

Dirt Nasty aka Simon Rex is an American actor, musician, producer, and comedian. When Dirt Nasty and Parow met for the first time in LA a few years, they got on like a house of fire and decided that they should do something together. They released the single and music video for “F*k F*kkity F*k” at the end of last year and in September this year, Mr. Nasty is coming to sleep on Parow’s couch.
F*k F*kkity F*k received such good feedback that a radio edit was produced titled Skop Skoppity Skop. This ended up at Number 4 on the 5FM Top 40.
Great news is that the two acts will perform together on a national tour and together present their hit collaboration, “F*k F*kkity F*k”, directly to South African fans. “I met Simon in 2009 when I visited the States. He was keen to make a track together and this only because a reality on my third album Nag Van Die Lang Pette that was released in 2014. It is a nasty track with a nasty title, but all good fun.” says Jack Parow.
