A few years have passed since the long-haired Alabama pimp named Jackie Chain pulled up on our radar, but it’s now officially safe to say he’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Press play just once on this freshly-waxed, Motion Family-filmed visual for “Parked Outside” and you’ll realize he’s finally commandeered his career and has all the pieces in place to succeed.
No longer will we see stellar songs plagued by poor videos, or unmarketable ones carried by shock value. Instead, Jackie has now solidified a quintessential, Southern-fried crossover hit and video, as well as some of some of biggest cosigners currently in Hip-Hop, riding shotgun. Put it up against any of his other videos, and they don’t even compare. Or, put it on MTV Jams and watch as unfamiliar faces see Mr. VIP for the first time and eat up his whole character. Chuckle all you want, but between his look and his style, Mr. Chain is commercially viable. Now, we’re about to find out just how much.
“Parked Outside” is available for purchase on iTunes.
