You know you’re officially a rock star when you’ve gotten up to enough shit to write a book about it. Yip, that’s correct, Jack Parow, The Afrikaans rapper from Bellville has a book, “Die ou met die snor by die bar” (The guy with the moustache at the bar).
The book was written by Theunis Engelbreght and tells of the wild, crazy adventures that Jack has been on in his quest to becoming one of South Africa’s award winning artists.
The book also details his childhood and younger days and how he set out to become the rap sensation that he is today. The story starts at his life behind the “boerewors-curtain” in Bellville and makes a couple of turns in Parow, The Netherlands, London, Los Angeles and Moscow.
The stories behind his hits are disclosed, as well as some of his lyrics which will appear in print for the very first time as they don’t feature in any of the CD-booklets.
The book also contains some never-before-seen photos.
