Product Description

Product Description


Before Will Smith expanded into acting on large and small screens, he played rapper to Jazzy Jeff's scratcher in a series of semi-novelty radio and video smashes. A teenager empathizing with the peer group his records were aimed at, the Fresh Prince communicated ground-level dispatches on home life ("Parents Just Don't Understand"), would-be romance ("Girls Ain't Nothing But Trouble") and Walter Mitty-style flights of fancy ("I Think I Can Beat Mike Tyson"). Movie stardom led Smith to put the mic down until the recent Big Willie Style; the success of that disc makes this the right time to revisit his early work, which shares space here with the newer "Men in Black" and "Just Cruisin'." Is it jiggy? Yeah, pretty jiggy. --Rickey Wright

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, fun, bubble-gum rap at its best... May 28 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Before Will Smith made 20 million dollars per box office flick, he was the funniest, funkiest Fresh Prince alongside his sidekick DJ Jazzy Jeff.
In-between the hardcore gangsta rap of N.W.A. and the political mindedness of Public Enemy, we met young JJ and FP with their 1988 mega-hit "Parents Just Don't Understand". Jazz and Prince followed with "Nightmare On My Street" and "Girls Ain't Nothing But Trouble", which samples the 'I Dream of Jeannie' TV theme.
The best song on this CD is the timeless "Summertime", a jam that still sounds fresh to this day. "Ring My Bell (Mr. Lee's Radio Mix)" is also a dance-friendly song, as is the previously unreleased "Lovely Daze". Plus, any Fresh Prince fan will love the full version of "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air".
Other goodies include the Teddy Riley-produced "I'm Looking For The One (To Be With Me)", "Boom! Shake The Room!" and Will Smith's own "Men In Black". If you want to know and revisit Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince, this is a great CD to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good CD June 27 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD has Fresh Prince & Jazzy Jeff cuts, spanning their entire history. Jazzy Jeff, creator of the transformer scratch, is one of the best DJs ever, he started out playing at parties with the Prince to founded his own record label, A Touch of Jazz. The best two tracks on this CD are "The Magnificent Jazzy Jeff," which displays Jeff's scratching skills and "A Touch of Jazz," whose title speaks for itself.

Will Smith aka the Fresh Prince adds smooth flows of comical lyrics to Jazzy's fresh beats. The tracks have the best flows are "Summertime," describing scenes of summer, and "You Saw My Blinker," which has got the funniest Prince lines.
Also, you got to give props to the old school tracks, "Parents Just Don't Understand" and "Girls Ain't Nothin' But Trouble." My only complaint about this album is it loses it's replay value after a while. But when that happens, just put it away for a year then bring it back out. This CD is a must have for any Will Smith, Jeff Townes, or hip hop fan. Even though the Prince doesn't have to cuss to say what he's trying to, any true hip hop fan will like this.

In it's virtual "eye blink" time span of existence, Rap, and the Hip Hop house it lives in has been rapidly and constantly changing. Just as we look back on our Afros and bell bottoms and can see our development since then, with this collection, we can look back, even if just ten years, at a group that as weathered some changing times. By that, I mean musical tastes. Rap is as diverse as the population it serves. And those who consider themselves "the true and the pure", can't resist promoting their style at the expense of trashing anothers. DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince have been extremely popular, yet also have been unfairly maligned by a large part of the industry. I guess I have to admit that I'm partial to fellow West Philly natives. I am also West philly born and raised, and the playground was were I spent most of my days. I wasn't frontin', trying to emulate a gansta, or felt my role models were those who participated in "the thug life". I was a regular brother, trying to catch the eye of the pretty girl, keep my head low when bullets were flying, and survive the drama of the inner city. DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince reflected this attitude, as did Kid and Play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eminem could never live up to this!! Feb. 8 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Prince and Jazz are apart of the changing of the guard in mid 80's rap. They reflected an expanding genre where groups like Public Enemy and The Beastie Boys where apart of the mainstay. Jazzy Jeff is by far one of the worlds greatest DJ's and Fresh Prince is one of the most talented and intricate rappers to come along. Anyone who disagrees has never seen them live. I find it shameful that when Eminem had bad words for Will Smith, no one in the rap world stood up to defend Will. Eminem needs to show respect for a legend and understand that his unique "character trait" is what makes him rich and famous - not his skills. There have been thousands of emcees since 1975 and most of them have been much more skillful than Eminem but have not been as successful. Is it coincidence that Vanilla Ice was just as big as Eminem... I doubt it. I can't beleive the rap community was so spineless in defending this legend - Will Smith. We gotcha back Will.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goin' ol' school, Willie style ! :) Dec 9 2002
Format:Audio CD
If you cant let go of your youth, like myself, and you like upbeat rap with "no cussin'" as Eminem said of Will Smith and his recordings, (not to mention what Emimen says after that to Will) this is the CD. Almost every track was a favorite, from 'Parents just dont understand', 'Nightmare on my street', 'Summertime', and even the full length version of the theme from his hit TV series 'Ther fresh prince of Bel Air'.
Total Will Smith, with Jazz here, and it is great. Very lively and those creative lyrics you just cant get enough of..well, almost. But it really remains one of his best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Proof That Nice Guys Can Finish First! June 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
Before the rage of hardcore rap, there was a young man out of Philadelphia named Will Smith along with DJ Jazzy Jeff showed that rap can be fun and can still make the charts! Nearly all the classics I remember are on here plus a few that I had never heard until this CD!
Will still can flow but to me, he was much better as The Fresh Prince! I have to agree with one reviewer about Eminim. I feel Em is talented but I also agree he should show more respect to one of the veterans of the game. Get this to hear the original "Bill Cosby" of rap!
