Jakk the Rhymer is a Brooklyn bred emcee with a style heavily influenced by artists that also hail from the legendary borough: Mos Def, Biggie Smalls, Jay Z and many more. Jakk linked up early with the Pro Era crew out of Brooklyn, NY and is considered one of the original members. As his career grew, Jakk tha Rhymer’s influence and network continued expanding further than the five boroughs; he currently resides in Philadelphia, PA and has started a new hip-hop concentration focusing on revitalizing a familiar sound while also pushing the boundaries of the genre’s capabilities. This new sound is orchestrated by Jakk’s crew: the Dark Chip Syndicate. As their name would suggest, Jakk boasts, “these guys are so far ahead sonically they had to come back and get the rest of us.” Jakk’s crew consists of rappers who also produce, do video work, and are diversely talented creatives. Be on the lookout: these guys have huge plans and show no signs of slowing down.
