Jack Parow Lyrics
Zander Tyler, better known by his stage name Jack Parow, is an Afrikaner rapper from Cape Town, South Africa. He is well known for his contribution to the song Die Vraagstuk with Die Heuwels Fantasties and performing with them at the Oppikoppi festival in 2009. He has contributed and collaborated with various other artists such as Die Heuwels Fantasties, Die Antwoord and Francois Van Coke
Parow wanted to be a rapper since he was in primary school, citing Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle as an initial inspiration. Although he started rapping in English, he soon decided that he preferred Afrikaans. His first hit came with his single Cooler as Ekke, which was promoted by friends in Die Heuwels Fantasties, with whom he later collaborated on their song Die Vraagstuk. He has since released four studio albums and toured around the world.
In 2015 Parow released a biography, Die Ou Met die Snor by die Bar,authored by local artist Theunis Engelbrecht.
In 2016 Parow and his friend Hardus van Deventer shot a nine episode TV series titled Dis Hoe Ons Rol, which aired July to August 2016 on the Kyknet premium TV channel. The filming took place as two legs over 30 days, during which Parow performed once in at least each of South Africa’s nine provinces.
In January 2017 Parow launched his own brandy product known as Parow Brandy.
He is currently managed by Fokofpolisiekar and Van Coke Kartel member, Wynand Myburgh.
