    I finally got to meet Will!

    I thought I'd share my experience from a week ago when I finally got the chance to meet Will or at least see him live. I haven't been on the forums here in a long long time, but Will was here in Australia recently and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try to see him in when it was announced that the morning show, Sunrise was going to have an exclusive interview and meet and greet with the man himself. Messaged the boss and told him that I wasn't coming in for that reason and he gave me the all clear. Got on the phone to my best mate and told him what was up and the next morning we were right there at the fence-line waiting for Will to come out. I took with me a couple of things I was hoping to get signed, including a couple of shirts and a custom made FRESH licence plate. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to exchange words with Will or even get a selfie, which some people were fortunate enough to get, however, not all was lost. I managed to get in at the nick of time for Will to sign my licence plate. To say the least I was beside myself with excitement. Definitely a bucket list moment for me and I hope I get the chance again to try for a selfie and chat. I've attached some pics from the day. I know that some of the pics aren't the greatest of quality but in the heat of the moment it was very hard to get a good picture and try to get things signed and get Will's attention :P.

    Here are some photos of the JJFP.com crew @ Blackpool! I will write an entire article about the night but I am still processing it. It truly was an amazing concert!

    Anyone who listens to critics and makes a judgement based on them is a moron. They slammed Concussion, mainly based on the huge NFL following and not wanting the truth to be told. Will was impeccable and the movie was accurately brilliant in every sense it should have been. Will deserved every inch on that Golden Globe nod and should have been nominated for an Oscar. They slammed Suicide Squad, mainly because there’s a Hollywood vendetta against DC, they seem to be up Marvels rear end so much if they sneeze it’s coming out of Iron Mans nose. But, along with Margot, Will was the shining light from the movie. That rarely gets mentioned. They slammed Collateral Beauty, but again, Will was impeccable at becoming a father that’s lost his child and capturing the essence and emotion that father would be feeling. Every bit as good as he was in Pursuit of Happyness. It seems like Hollywood are canning these movies, or pigeon holing them because they don’t fit the criteria of an award winner. Casey Affleck swept the awards, Manchester by the Sea wasn’t a great movie, yet Casey won awards based on HIS performance. But even then, I fail to see how Denzel or Andrew Garfield weren’t front runners and winner for their performances in Fences and Hacksaw Ridge respectively. This is because critics aren’t FACTS, they are OPINIONS. F critics, F award shows, watch the film and make your own judgement and definitely stop being happy his movies can or critiquing them just because you want a new album. You’ll never enjoy them if you go in with other people’s opinions and negative thought of your own of where his career should be.

    Hey man - I agree with all that you said. I don't mind Get Lit as I do enjoy house and some EDM but he's not giving us what we want. We want BARS! Will needs to actually SPIT BARS. Once that happens, he'll get more attention online. I don't care if he wants to experiment, you have to as an artist. Caution in the WIld could've been so much better if it was a full song and if he didn't repeat the same 4 lines or so in both "verses". The Fiesta remix video was pretty dope - imagine if those visuals were used for a proper rap comeback song. I've been saying it for years that he's super secretive and insecure about his music...but says one thing and then says something else. He drops L+F saying how much he loves music and then never drops another single or album. In the music industry, if you don't have some recent, it's out of sight, out of mind and in Will's case - 12 years?! Completely out of mind. There's a whole generation of people who didn't know he was a rapper before the movies. Another example - back in 2005, he said he was going to do stuff online. Where's the website? He doesn't even have a legit website. How about a soundcloud? He's so out of touch. I don't think he's cared much either about his music career and truth be told - it shows. One more example in 2015 - "Oh yeah Jeff and I are going to do a proper world tour because we've never done it and its going to be in 2016." ....We got 2 shows in 2016. Not exactly a tour. I get he's the biggest movie star on the planet but give me a break - he doesn't have to make movies another day in his life. If you really wanted to do music - you do it. Don't say we're going on tour and then go sign on for another 2 movies....seriously. This is where my frustration sets in. If he wants to be taken seriously again regarding music, he needs to drop bars. Plain and simple. You don't need to sell records anymore - just do it for the love and people will respond.

    Nice break down....but it doesn't compare to the way the Prince just kicked down the door and made the entire rap game (old and new) snap their heads in his direction. He must be putting the finishing touches on the album if he's bold enough to drop this.

    This truely is a great moment in hip hop history it's the equivalent of Michael Jordan coming out of retirement in his prime and battling lebron James I'm in awe FP hasn't lost a step he should be in more peoples top 5 rappers of all time.

    Get Lit

    let me get this straight the classic mc who wrote lyrical classics like summertime and brand new funk had a simple edm dance song written by XO Man (no disrespect but who is he?), simply embarassing, maybe will should just hang up the mic, he's looking like a lost rapper...

    Ugh. He really didn't have any time to just sit down and write a song? It's not even that good and the fact he didn't write it, makes it even worse in my opinion.

    That's what I wish for. Just drop some music for the love of making music instead of trying to fit into some mainstream category. Drop the songs, drop an album without trying to go multi platinum and 100 million+ clicks on youtube. That's not what I'm waiting for as a fan. I want him to drop some bars on hiphop and break beats along with those jazzy scratches. Just do it! :D

    Yeah the music industry is basically dead these days. No one buys music. "Albums" don't even really exist anymore. Kids stream a song they like and that's about it. That's why I can't understand why Will even cares about a "hit song". Just do some JJFP for the longtime fans.

    will needs to get on this board and deliver what us true fans want, that classic boom bap hip hop, we want "Code Red 2017/2018" haha! btw i had a dream last night that Will made a song dissing President Trump, i wouldn't mind if that dream came true either at this point!

    Great interview with Jeff

    I love this interview. The cool thing about Jeff's interviews is that there always seems to be at least one thing we've never heard before. "Live At Union Square" has been talked about before, but it was good to hear him talk about it, rather than read about it. Hearing him talk about DJ's parties at Philly was kind of funny. I never thought about how the music impacts the behavior of the party. It's interesting that Jeff is the one who prompted FP to mellow out his delivery on "Summertime," which went on to impact many of his songs since then. Their exit from Jive is really interesting. It's crazy that they treated JJ+FP so poorly in the end, but didn't make it easy for them to leave. It makes me wonder if Will is so loaded these days that he can simply buy back their catalogue. With Jive being long gone, it truly is only business at this point. Lastly, I love that they made it so that you can download the interview.
