meet The Rap Pack, performers

We’ve worked with many fascinating people over the years, from all walks of life. ‘Meet’ is about sharing a little about these individuals and the work we provided.

Everything we do is free

We are The Rap Pack. We make rap that is funny. We used to be called the Retar Crew but that name wasn't very good.

Once upon a time, 4 dudes thought it would be cool to form a group called The Retar Crew AKA The Q Brothers AKA The Rap Pack. G said, “Hey, we should form a group and make an album” JQ said, “And we should sell it for FREE on a website”

Jeremiah J. Jackson, Sr. AKA JQ

JQ is a Chicago native who founded the AAEE (Americans Against Eating Eggplant). To the nation of vegetarians who cries blasphemy and calls him a “vegist,” J maintains, “It’s not the taste, it’s a texture thing…plus, it makes the roof of my mouth all itchy.” He is responsible for making the group’s beats and when asked which computer program he uses, he replied, “I use this,” and pulled a Sony Walkman out of his windbreaker, adding, “It’s one of those dope ones, though. It’s got auto-reverse.”

Percy Ostenbergerstienenbaum AKA PO

P.O. was born and raised in Decatur, Georgia and is the son of a preacher man. Following in his father’s footsteps, but always with his own twist, he changed his name to The Reverend Lionel Freighthoppa and has spent the last three years performing rap sermons to other vagabonds while riding freight trains back and forth between The Dakotas and the pacific northwest.

Nancy Von Bittenhard AKA JQ

Former big sister of fellow Rap Pack member JQ, “G” (Gabriella) lives in a trailer and has no real expenses except for his marijuana habit. He would like to add that he purchases all his weed legally with a medical card which he obtained from a doctor. He was diagnosed with “lack of focus and insomnia”

Jeremiah J. Jackson, Jr. AKA Jackson

Jackson D is from the cornfields of Iowa. At an early age, he was taught that “city folk ain’t to be trifled with” — and that was just referring to folks in Iowa City. Thus began Jackson’s obsession with cities and urban lifestyle, naturally giving him a deep appreciation and love for hip hop. He knew he had to make his way to the big city of Chicago. When he finally arrived, a chance encounter with a high-profile casting director at a downtown newsstand landed him the role of Harriet Tubman in the forthcoming summer blockbuster, Big Action Celebrity Car Chase 3.

Frank Orlando is extremely enjoyable to work with. He has been able to accent our brand visually in a way that we, as performers, don't have the skill or talent for. His designs have given us credibility to our band through our amazingly slick website. We have seen an increase in local foot traffic to our shows with his poster designs and an increase in web traffic with his awesome branding. His designs are clever, funny, extremely detailed, and interesting, and always relevant to the theme of the project and to our sensibilities. Sometimes the work is hilariously literal and often it is brilliantly abstract. Frank Orlando is a brilliant man with a kind and giving soul. I highly recommend his services.
