    9th Ward – Typical N.O. rapper …yadda yadda ya …the second song wasn’t half bad tho

  • Peru (Chicago)

    Damn, reading the comments made me listen to Jacka’s shit a second time…but I still dont think it’s good, am I missing something??? I will definitely give a nigga credit for good shit when the credit is due but I’m not hearing it. I dont know if my shit just aint playing the songs right or what but these two songs are weak…somebody put me on to more of his music and maybe my opinion will change…

  • Rap is Crap

    Its good to know that even though we could have a Black family in the Whitehouse in a few months, that Niggas will always be Niggas!

    “Smell Yo Dick”…Wow!

  • http://www.myspace.com/mc585 MC

  • Yayza

    I was ready to skip past all the shit, but Reks caught my eye, and son is nice on the mic, point blank.

  • JDizzel3000

    A peru shoot me your email …and ill plug you with some jack…these two songs may not be your thing ..i felt the same way about all over me when i first heard it …cos he usually dont get down wit no “for the ladies” tracks but then the beat grew on me…but yeah holla at me bruh i got you

  • http://leftcoast415.blogspot.com leftcoast415

    Jacka is the shit. You gotta listen to his albums to really get into him. Do yourself a favor and listen to “The Jack Artist”. I’m sure Tear Gas will be just as good. He gets real deep with his lyrics (not complex, but deep thought provoking shit) and raps over some nice laid back production. Don’t sleep.

  • 11KAP

    They all have potential.

  • sactownking916

    no cologne..jus kush and patron on me

    its the jack!its the MOB!

  • Jack

    Reks is the best one out of this bunch he could have been a little more original though the jacka isn’t anything special and of course the chick is just a scared hoe like the majority of femecees. and 9th ward was the biggest bust i was expecting more from a guy from the NO but Jermaine Dupri got him on some bow wow nonsense gunna turn him into a bubblegum rapper

  • Sonny

    Yo Reks is the fucking shit, fuck you pansy bitches that don’t have 2 minutes to click a fuckin button and listen to some of his shit you fuckin dumb niggas.

  • steve

    Rhythmatic-Eternal-King-Supreme Remember the name!!!!!

    REKS is killing you fools!

    9TH WARD LOOKS LIKE HE HAS ALOT ON HIS MIND…….LOOKS LIKE HE HAD 9 WARTS ON HIS HEAD!

  • Nate

    The Jacka is the most popular from The Mob Figaz (c-bo created in 1999)He has been on a lot of peoples albums and his two great ones are Jack of All Trades, and The Jack Artist.
    He has a lot of good street albums and mix-Cd’s etc out. When he performs (like Before Saigon, David Banner) at the Mezzanine he got a lot more love than Saigon. I’m feelin how his content is real life based, (I’ve read the police chases, etc from the papers with his name in Sac-town in the news) and his flow and relaxed attitude is nice. It just works, so he’s about number 14 on the list of deserving Bay and Cali artist that SHOULD have major deals, but get cheated because all A&R’s care about is their salaries, not the music. I’ll listen to the other artist now, but don’t skip Jacka just cause you don’t like one of the others…

  • Nate

    Shooterz is just for the laid back track- his flow works good for if you want to just kick back and smoke to it. If you hear a Jacka album and listen to his stories then you feel it and feel that emotion. He’s not some hardcore hyped up rider shit artist, he’s gonna tell you a story and make you listen. If you have A.D.D. then you shouldn’t be on here…
