It has been a journey for Jack Hawksworth AKA Black Jack UK since being born in 1990, personally and musically which has now led to a new single which has the potential to firmly thrust the British hip hop/rap artist into new spotlights.
One of four children raised by a single mother on a rough council estate in Manchester, Jack found himself going down the wrong path and heading to prison as a teenager. Already though, he had found a passion for hip hop and especially New York gangster rappers Mobb Deep which helped nurture his own newly found talent and love for writing music during his final bout of incarceration. Upon release he concentrated on this new turn in his life, and started going to the studio to record his creations with subsequent videos of the recordings soon building an eager following and media attention.
Now Stand Up is poised to stoke further awareness of Black Jack UK; the song an introduction of himself to his home city and beyond but equally, after recent tragic events, an unexpected and potent call to fellow Mancunians and souls. Featuring God Father pt 3 of Infamous Mobb which is aligned to Mobb Deep and produced by Dr.G, the song quickly offers a raw and dramatic atmosphere as keys and rhythms almost prowl the imagination around, initially God Father pt 3’s introduction and Jack’s subsequent opening of heart and vocal prowess. It is a self-announcement of a new wind in the Manchester hip hop/grime/rap landscape, but equally a source of hope and emotional arousal for those growing up in similar circumstances and a possible escape with a chorus which as suggested suits recent city and national tragedies.
The track continues to pulsate and resonate, its music minimal yet magnetic around the equally potent vocal and lyrical presence of Jack. Loaded with potential and providing a thick pleasing of ears, Stand Up is the welcome to a fresh talent we might be hearing a lot more of ahead.
