Eminem’s Rapture tour’s South African leg is almost here. With shows on February 26 in Cape Town and 1st of March in Johannesburg, the 13 times Grammy Award winning artist will be the biggest star to hit the SA music scene in 2014 so far. Check out the acts that will support Eminem on his trip to South Africa.
The official music video for Jack Parow’s P.A.R.T.Y dropped yesterday, and it might be the most South African video ever. (Sorry, Waddy.) In the video, directed by Paul Ward, Jack is on a road trip with his buddies. He lounges on the beach, drinks at a bar, watches sport, surfs, eats at Wimpy and bounces with children and petrol attendees. Like we all do.
Jack Parrow, DJ DNA and Michel Schoots, from Urban Dance Squad came together last year in Holland to record this awesome track.
Jack Parow has released a statement that he will not be attending Oppikoppi 2013 because he has been arrested by police at the Vaalkop dam.

Not content with giving you Kenny Kunene and Khanyi Dhlomo live on 2oceansvibe Radio, we’re pushing the boat even further and throwing in a dollop of Owwweh!
Fanie Fourie’s Lobola is better than you think. The title and movie poster conjure up what you’d imagine to be a crass, over-the-top comedy, leaning on stereotypes with a side order of cheeky romance. Thankfully, it’s not.
Titled, rather appropriately, “Merry Xmas”, Parow’s latest video was shot in Durban and produced by Parow’s mate Warren Haviside. Laat die vet beats drop en die biltong hang!
Jack Parow has just dropped this insane music video for his song, Afrikaans is Dood (Afrikaans is dead). The plot involves Parow defending himself against a group of thieving lowlifes. What do they want to steal? His lyrics, of course!
For months now we’ve all been hearing that “die tokoloshe gaan jou vang-elang-elang as jy hardloop in die gang-elang-elang”. Finally the day is now upon us where we can see what the music video look like for Jack Parow and Gazelle’s radio hit, “Hosh Tokolosh”. But is it any good?
2oceansvibe Radio recently launched our Melrose Arch Studio to much fanfare in Johannesburg. The launch of the studio was our way of answering the desperate cries of our many thousands of Johannesburg listeners who, since being liberated from Morkels ads, “hump days” and “no repeat workday” radio were craving a stronger taste of the Vibe. [...]
Jack Parow has just dropped the first music video from his second studio album. “Hard Partytjie Hou” also features Fokofpolisiekar and Van Coke Kartel frontman, Francois van Coke. Best line? “As jy van die liedjie hou, p**s vir Nicholis Louw!” See full, uncensored video inside.
We caught up with South Africa’s top Afrikaans rapper, Jack Parow, on the set of his latest music video shoot at Assembly, to discuss his controversial decision to turn down Lady Gaga’ touring request. Click through for the full, mind blowing interview!
Well, would you just look at that. The Hosh Tokoloshe, and his lovely stekkie, Jenna Pietersen, immortalised in black and white, kaalgat. Look at his face. Look at his moustache. So serene. So beautiful. How’s the serenity? You might remember that a large proportion of the 2oceansvibe staffers got their kit off for last year’s [...]
Somewhat controversial, is old Jack Parow’s latest single entitled ‘Eksie Ou’ off his new album. It seems our boy is at it again, having a go at a number Cape Town institutions and people. From gym bunnies and hipsters to Kauai and Ice Models, nobody is safe from the sharp tongue of Parow’s favourite son. [...]
So Jack Parow appeared out of nowhere at the 2oceansvibe Media compound last week, sporting a new afro. I can’t be absolutely certain, but I have a feeling his new look could be defined as “zef.” We flew radio control helicopters around The Compound for a while, during which time he explained to me that [...]
As I stood there, mouth slightly ajar, listening to Bittereinder spew out lyrics of defiance and love at Oppikoppi, it suddenly hit me that what I truly loved about this eccentric band was its fearsome Afrikaans-ness. This was an unapologetic and proud Afrikaans band. What’s more, Bittereinder aren’t idiotic about it. They’re angry without being bitter, and they are proud without being supremacist about it. You don’t get that very often. And it got me thinking about the “roots” of the band that followed.
Enjoy this early-release version of a track by local muso, JR (of “Make The Circle Beega”) fame. The track, titled “Show Goes On” will launch officially this coming Friday. Die Heuwels Fantasties and Jack Parow make an appearance on the track. Nicely.
What’s in my bag? Free songs by new Cape Town band Holiday Murray, some fierce guitar sounds courtesy of The Pretty Blue Guns, and a remix of Jack Parrow’s “Cooler As Ekke” that will make you want to bust a move. Yes kids, Easter is here.
Yo yo yo, Captain Jack Parow has just released his newest video called “Byellville”. The video, directed by Duvand Durand and Thomas Ferreira, portrays the world of “Belville Cultue”, as seen through the lens of the somewhat strange musician.

Follow the link to get access to the podcast in jou moeder se huisie. And yes, it was hilarious. We chatted about everything from Joost van der Westhuizen and [...]
Someone made a very good point today (following our coverage of Die Antwoord), stating that although I have mention Jack Parow and his song “Cooler As Ekke,” and even featured the TaxiJam version, I am yet to show the original music video on 2oceansvibe. Surely not? I had a little look around and, my God, [...]
For those of you who don’t know about Jack Parow, this is the afrikaans rapper taking SA by storm. The guys is crafty and, what’s more, hilarious! He gives Carl Gorgens a run for his money and he is in full effect on Taxi Jam. Jack Parow’s phenomenal rise to fame was fueled by the [...]
