New Orleans Representa'
Jeremy "J-Jack" Jackson
Coming out of New Orleans, Louisiana, Artist Jakk Jo has seen the many sides of the Music Industry and continues to push along and grow his craft. The love of music has helped him craft gritty, and crafty music. As we reached back and listened to some of Jakk Jo's earlier releases, you can see him still growing and his potential for even more. Songs like "I'M back" hits hard to set it off!!
With some gritty, yet true, as I've seen wit my own eyes in the streets in the past, hard hitting lyrics like "Yo Main ni77a you squeezing triggas fo'/ he staged a robbery/he kicked yo back do'/he know exactly where you put the sack bro/then he told you, to be ca'ful//da judge got yo life inside the gaffle/gotta protect yo neck or the feds gon make an example..." Whew!! The Notebook sparks and starts off wit a
bang and continues on from there. 13 Songs strong, Jakk Jo puts a stamp on "Notebook Musik." On "Mean Dat Sh@t" "Did my own thang and I was born in da Mob/told Ma, I rap/ I'ont wanna work a job/fam full of Gangsta's, I been outside/ wake up ev' morning, see the Benz outside/ see the 'Lac outside/ can't fit in the garage/ rich ni77a chit, I aint neva gotta act/fifteen Ma puttin' furs on my
back..." Jakk Jo attacks the production, relentlessly. He has more then just the New Orleans accent, voice etc., and he shows it on "NotebookMusik". But even when you hear his lyrics, you still gotta understand that he will still grow with his music with time. Jakk Jo ends "NotebookMusik" with another standout track in "Suicidal Thoughts" "...We stood strong like Soljas/we aint bend or rollova/when that pressure was on my chest/ I aint panic, held my compusure/had to laugh to keep from crying/that's why I'm always jokin'/You cant't relate to this real chit if you neva felt hopeless.."
