Washington D.C.-bred, California-based rapper/producer Fong-Sai-U presents “Jack Sparrow”, the self-produced new single from his forthcoming album Ballads Of A Massacre. “Jack Sparrow” is the followup to the release of “Dopeamine” featuring Dice Raw (listen) and the “Bad Guy” video (watch). An underground hip-hop veteran, Fong has collaborated with Black Thought (click to stream “I Own This Microphone”) who was an early mentor to Fong and took him on tour with The Roots. Fong also produced a song for Guru of Gang Starr on his solo album Bald Head Slick under his given name Divine (click to stream “O.G. Talk”). In 2011 Soulspazm Records released Fong’s album A Soldier’s Story (click for info) which featured Raheem DeVaughn and Res. Fong calls Jack Sparrow his “alter ego – like the old dirty part of me. The one that’s going to lyrically rip your head off and not give a f–k. At one point I was going to stop rapping due to health reasons and people trying to tarnish my name, but when I heard that beat it brought me out of that mental coma. Sometimes you have to go through hell to reach heaven.”
