“Gang Gang Gang” stood out even amid the outstanding tracks that make up Jackman. One of life’s most painful lessons is when you realise how many people you once looked up to have let you down. Jack confronts this universal experience. Lyrically, “Gang Gang Gang” illustrates the disturbing elements of close friends when our peers allow their demons get the best of them by detailing the story of two friends who got into trouble via the lens of a conversation between Jack and another friend after Jack returns home.
When pressure comes to shove, even “unconditional love” becomes “very conditioned,” as Jack puts it. As the song goes: “And all that talk of takin’ bullets suddenly feels foolish / Pictures with him turn to ad campaigns, you gotta pull it.”
Rapper Jack thanked his fans on Twitter for the positive response to Jackman, his latest album, compared to his previous effort, Come Home The Kids Miss You. In a message to his supporters, he said, “I just wanna say the love & respect I’ve felt from not only my peers… but from YALL… the fans… the folks that have supported me from the beginning… it feels f***in amazing.” To the people that listen to my music, I say, “Thank you.” I’ve never felt such a strong sense of community.
