Up-and-coming Alabama rapper Jackie Chain might share a similar name to Kung fu great, Jackie Chan, but when it comes to his physical looks, the Southern MC has more in common with late comedian Mitch Hedberg.
The half-Korean MC’s signature long, straight brown hair and light shades fall into the exact same M.O. as the cult stand-up great. The similarities don’t end there. They both have a penchant for wordplay and jokes about weed. Now all we need is a DJ to mash up Chain’s music with samples of Hedberg’s witty one-liners. They could call the album, Jackie Chain: Straight to the Hed. —Jesse Gissen
