Review from Gary Allen
Jacole Chandler has a secret identity. He is also Mr. Swag and represents a new vibe of artist
similar to Lil Wayne and Nelly. I hope he gets signed before there is a swagger jacking ,as he
is laying it all out there with lyrical metaphors and paying dues. There comes a point or a fine
line if you will, where an artist will evolve and mature past their source of inspiration, and
mature to a higher level of greatness. Not wavered by the taunts or the praise from his critics.
Then that magic moment forever changes an artist's life when he finally sees the fruits of his
labor. Jacole will know what I am talking about soon when he lives from a suitcase bringing it
to every venue with electricity, like I have. Jacole placed top runnerup in my Sonicbids
competition and that's quite a feat for a hip hop artist.
"Dance Slow" from Jacole's debut CD can be heard on YouTube and is a natural progression
from songs like "What We Do" that has a hypnotic flow that takes you into his own head where
rapping is effortless and the real deal. The CD is packed with examples of growth, as an artist,
versatility, entertaining subject matter and creative concepts . He is well grounded and realizes
the marketing and who you know is a big hurdle to jump as a new hip hop artist and accepts
the task head on. A Jefferson, Tennessee native he now resides in California and makes his
music available online. You can follow Jacole on Twitter and hear music samples on My
Space. He will be featured at Tennessee Concerts and in Gary Allen's Music City Beat
newsletter this month. Jacole placed top runner up in my Sonicbids competition and that's
quite a feat for a hip hop artist. He is shopping for label interest and can be contacted through
Kelly Green, CEO of Malus Records in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Very powerful imagery in this collection that I'm sure will have a lot of Hip-Hop purists breaking
for the rewind button a few times!
I do feel that his growing maturation as a man and as an artist can be the sign of a rebirth
within Hip-Hop! A Rebirth that shows that you can be a successful and highly respected
Hip-Hop Artist by professing a love, commitment, hard work ethic and dedication to your craft
and the art form. And as long as more artist take up and adapt to that mentality as their
standard, then Hip-Hop will never die!
Jacole's strong lyrical content is growing a huge array of followers, making him a hero on the
Internet. He is a great poet and his theory on life is influencing his songs and his fans to a
huge extent. This versatile young artist has the makings of being a major star with a trail of
successful work and the admiration and love of hip hoppers everywhere, much like the
adulation Tupac Shakur enjoyed. Record companies check Jacole Chandler out while you can
afford him. Don't be like Decca Records that passed on Elvis and The Beatles. Then you
spend eternity kicking yourselves in the ass! Congratulations Jacole and see you soon as
King Of The Game!
