5.0 out of 5 stars Best CD I have May 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the first Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince record I ever got, about five years ago. And this is also the one I listen to the most because it's their best. Plain and simple.
From hearing the first track, A Nightmare on My Street, you're immediately taken back to the days when rap was fun to listen to. Now it's all about the hardcore stuff which totally disinterests me. This album is completely 80's.
This disc houses some of their greatest tracks they've ever recorded. Parents Just Don't Understand, Brand New Funk, A Nightmare on My Street, Here We Go Again, and the list goes on and on for all seventeen tracks.
Here are the top five songs on the disc
1.A Nightmare on My Street
2.Here We Go Again
3.Brand New Funk
4.He's the DJ, I'm the Rapper
5.Parents Just Don't Understand
This album is completely worth buying no matter what kind of music you listen to. This is the best CD I have in my not so extensive CD collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars When rap was safe for everyone Aug. 10 2000
Format:Audio CD
I am taken back everytime I hear this CD. Back to a time when people like Eminem were not spewing curse words like their life depends on it. Back when hip hop was trully a form of music and not an avenue for hatred and homicide. Many rappers have legit messages (Ice T, Ice Cube, Public Enemy) that they get across by swearing, and it is all good. But Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince are the greatest hip hop duo ever, and they do it in a way that you and your kids can enjoy. Great beats and jazzy is one of the baddest and most underrated DJs ever. Just great music performed by great performers.

I love this album because it has so much of the 1980's rap flavor in it. Human beat box, funny lyrics, techno sounds, they are all part of the 80's hip hop transition to rap. This album took Will and Jeff to the next level and shot them on to big careers. Now, Will has totally outdone his old work, but this album is cool 'cause it's bringing the roots back. Another good album for Will Smith fans, don't expect any Big Willie, but expect some Fresh Prince style.

5.0 out of 5 stars still good through time April 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
This disc is still a good listen years and years later. The cassette I owned in the 80s has since disappeared. Buying this CD used on Amazon was a great purchase.
Not sure if this would be as enjoyable to someone picking it up for the first time today.
If you're looking for new groovy stuff, check out The Roots or Zero 7. Also, Jazzy Jeff has a new disc out so check that one, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jazzy's In The House Nov. 30 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Everyone remembers "Parents Just Don't Understand" but the flip side of this record shows something that isn't mentioned often enough - Jazzy Jeff is a seriously ill DJ (and does a much better transformer scratch than its inventor DJ Cash Money). Ready Rock C is also a great beatboxer. There may not be any cursing but this album is true hip hop. I recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Middle Class Rap Aug. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff were alternatives to the "gangster" rap that rose up in the late 1980s/early 1990s. "Nightmare On My Street" is a classic, another of their comedic raps like "Parents Just Don't Understand" and "Girls Ain't Nothing But Trouble". Their brand of rapping was light, fun, and enjoyable.
