Jackie Chain (Half-Korean Half-White Rapper) - Rollin feat Jhi Ali

Jackie Chain - Fear the Future

Jackie Chain aka "Mr. VIP" is a half white and half Korean rapper from Huntsville, Alabama. He has been rapping since the 5th grade. Jackie Chain had a rough childhood growing up. His mother left him when he was 2 years old and his father kicked him out of the house at age 16. He then hustled on the streets to get by which landed him in prison. Prison was where he started to take his rapping seriously and where he got the name "Jackie Chain". The story goes that the inmates called him "Jackie Chan" but because of their southern drawl it sounded like "Jackie Chain" and he kept that as his rapping name ever since. Jackie Chain has two mixtapes out: Fear the Future and Who Am I both released in 2008.

Rollin is one of Jackie Chain's biggest hits so far. The term "rollin" is a slang for being under the influence of the drug ecstasy. The instrumental of Rollin uses the sample of Robert Mile's Children. Gucci Mane on the chorus saying "Rollin, rollin, rollin, we ain't slept in weeks". Here's a "bootleg video" of Jackie Chain and Jhi Ali performing Rollin live at The Apex (accompanied with psychedelic effects LOL). I have to admit, this song is catchy.
