Scenes From Friday Night's Jackie Chain Show at Elm Street Bar.

Alabama's Jackie Chain is no stranger to Dallas. The rapper's made multiple stops in the city over the past year or so, touring as support for hip-hop heavyweights such as Mac Miller and Big K.R.I.T.

But, at Top Shelf Shows' Friday night offering at Elm Street Bar, Chain was finally given a chance to shine as a headliner, stopping through town in support of his latest mixtape, The Bruce Lean Chronicles.

And, in proper Texas welcome form, Chain was supported by some of the brightest talents Dallas and Houston currently have to offer with respective openers Tunk and LE$. These two, clearly, were on hand to put in work — so much so that they asked dancers and fans to avoid joining them on stage, with LE$ at one point even shoving a drunk fan back into the audience.

Fortunately, though, that quick altercation didn't dampen the mood of the night, and, shortly after, Chain took the stage donning a blue hoody, which he quickly abandoned as his set heated up.

He showed off his signature “Mr. VIP” chain, performed a slew of his southern-dripped YouTube hits such as “Diamonds and Cadillacs” and “Haze,” and per touring-through-Texas custom for most rappers, set aside a moment to honor the late Pimp C, too.

it was a short set as a whole, leaving plenty more to be desired. Judging by the crowd's response, though, it's safe to say Jackie Chain is welcome to headline Dallas again any time.

Seems the feeling is mutual, too.
