After rapping for pizza and beer at parties for a long time Jack Parow hit it big with the song Cooler as Ekke. In a few months Jack Parow was a household name. Some were disgusted, some feared it but loads loved it. jack Parow is like Marmite, you either love it or you hate it. Collaborations with Francois van Coke on Dans Dans Dans and Die Heuwels Fantasties on the song Die Vraagstuk made it clear that Jack Parow was not going to be just a flash in the pan.
