    Hero1 got a reaction from Neariarails in Jazzy Jeff on new Slum Village album   
    Evolution is the long-anticipated new Slum Village album, featuring founding member T3 along with Young RJ and Illa J.

    Slum Village was founded in the early 90s by three childhood friends: Baatin, T3, and rapper and producer J Dilla, who all grew up together in the Conant Gardens neighborhood of Detroit, MI. After leaving Pershing High School, the trio began to forge a path into the Detroit underground hip hop scene and quickly found themselves steadily gaining popularity, where they originally went by the name Ssenepod.

    Even though the group has suffered many heartaches and member changes over the years, Slum Village always finds a way to reinvent its brand. The Evolution of Slum Village continues with a reinvigorated energy, as founding member T3 holds down the legacy along with the Grammy-nominated producer Young RJ as well as young prodigy Illa J at his side. Evolution also includes the talents and skills of Havoc(of Mobb Deep), Raheem Devaughn, Jazzy Jeff and Rapper Big Pooh, amongst others.

    TRACK LISTING 1. Braveheart (feat. Havoc (Mobb Deep)) 2. Rock Rock (feat. DJ Jazzy Jeff) 3. Let It Go (feat. Blu) 4. Forever 5. Scared Money (feat. Early Mac) 6. Summer Breeze 7. The Line (feat. Focus) 8. Hustle (feat. Vice / J Ivy) 9. Bout That (feat. Joetka) 10. 1 Nite (feat. Vice ) 11. Greatness (feat. Joetka) 12. Riot (feat. Rapper Big Pooh / Joe Scudda)

    Yeah it was a really good afternoon. Nicole, thank Jeff for taking the time to meet us. I know these tours are such a hectic schedule and time off is rare so it's really appreciated. I think the interview turned out really well so big ups to Kev for organising that. When I think back to 10 or 12 years ago I never would have imagined I'd get to hang with brakes, Kev & Julie and see Jeff. We've truly become a little JJFP family and I'll never forget these memories.

    Hero1 got a reaction from Ale in Time to bring the community back...   
    At the height of jazzyjefffreshprince.com's success in 2004/2005 we were bringing in over 6,000 unique visitors a day..over 100,000 a month. The internet changes, social media has become big, and google has updated its algorithm more than a few times to hurt the site. Yes at one point this site was ranked #3 for a Will Smith search. Google no longer values older web sites..in fact it discounts them, and it ranks wikipedia, imdb and name brand sites way higher than fan sites. Good luck finding us for a Will Smith search even though the web site is now 17 years old, and has been updated more than Will's official site. The web site traffic of the site has dropped to around about unique 400 visits a day, mostly to the movie page. For all intensive purposes this community and forum is quite dead especially if you compare it to the glory days.

    It's time to come anew, and get the community back! People don't visit web sites they visit Facebook, and I am aiming for our Facebook page to have 100,000 likes by the end of May. Its time to get that feeling back of a community of fans, who discuss and talk about things with each other. Expect this page to have the latest news about Will & Jeff also. Facebook has a tricky way of not showing updates of pages you like so first of all make sure you bookmark this page:

    Also comment on and engage in the discussion going on right now about.

    Hero1 got a reaction from Ale in Jazzy Jeff @ Jazz Cafe   
    A fantastic night of music, insight and friendship. See I been doing this site for some 16 odd years, and I've seen many people come and go, but there are a few who stick with us. That don't need a heap of news, or a new Will Smith or Jazzy Jeff album to roll on by. Y'all know who that is, and that's a family. When I've seen Kev, or Brakes or Jim go see Jeff and have an awesome time nothing puts a bigger smile on my face. Over the years though, as I've seen these photos I've thought, wow wouldn't it be great if we saw Jeff together. So when a trip planned 8 months ago, and a rare UK tour coincide in life, you know it's meant to be.

    We all met up early, around 4:00. It is funny that other people have commented how natural our conversation, back and forth and obvious friendship shines through. Sure we've known each other on this site for years, but this was the first time we'd ever met in real life. My cousin Lawrence, Kev's mate Alan, all got the same vibe. My cousin Alison came along, and she suggested a Japanese restaurant right near the Jazz Cafe for dinner. So we made our way over their about 5:30 and Kev & Alan got to have some food they'd never tried before. Bernie joined us which was great. It was Jeff's tour of Australia in 2006 when we first met, and she'd first met Darnell. It was definitely strange not having Darnell there, Skillz, Darnell & Jeff had been touring together for 8 years, you just never imagined him not being there. He always took good care of the fans on this site and you know he will kill the next project or event he's running.

    As we had a great dinner-- the food was incredible, we made some unsuccessful attempts to organise the interviews with Cris, Jeff's video guy. Eventually we headed into the Jazz Cafe. When we got there it was 3/4 full, but within half an hour this show was a sellout and they opened up the balcony as the club's small space soon filled out. The vibe was good people, here to have fun with some good music. The opening DJ's played some classic hip hop records, then we were treated to some UK rap legends who performed a few tracks each. Just after 10, Jeff finally took the stage.

    It really was a great mix of music from Jeff, current rap hits, back to west coast & east coast anthems, reggae records-- there really was no boundaries in this set. Yeah it even included cheesy 80s hits like Toto's Africa, alongside Touch of Jazz gems like Floetry's Floetic, smells like teen spirit, and classic 80s soul jams. Skillz had the crowd jumping as Jeff went from one music classic to the next. For the JJFP fans we got some old school routines, "I Wanna Rock" & "Live at Union Square." The surprise of the night was he's the greatest dancer into Getting Jiggy Wit It. A pretty easy track for Brakes, Kev & I to rap along to.

    The two hours of music flew by, the crowd left sweating, and they slowly left knowing they'd seen one of the worlds best DJ's and had one hell of a party.

    After the show we made our way backstage to see Jeff. He hadn't slept in 4 days and was feeling pretty sick but was kind enough to spend a little time chatting. What ensued was a fantastic conversation. See in this room we had Kev, Brakes & myself, our combined knowledge of all things JJFP clicked into gear. Jeff was able to shed some light on many things we'd never known, and the conversation that flowed like THE DJ, was magnificent. For instance when Jeff first saw his son Amir jump in the booth and spit some amazing rhymes, Jeff was forced to look away so his son couldn't see the tears flowing from the amazingly proud father. Or that on the back of 4 months work in the studio on Willennium, how the rap duo was all set to do a world tour before the movie business and Ali, quickly took priority. Little tid bits of information flowed out that filled in the gaps of an amazing career, and gave these longtime fans some amazing knowledge. We were all lucky to be there. As 20 minutes flew by as if it was 20 seconds, we were told Jeff's car was ready, and the club was ready to close.

    Kev, Brakes & I headed downstairs to complete our interviews for Cris. Cris had the cameras set up, while DJ Spinone asked us some questions. Interesting questions, like how does Jeff inspire you, or what is so unique about you being a fan. I think we had some good answers so it will be interesting to see how the video turns out. I think it shows the positive effect Jeff & Will's music had on our lives, and we make good cases for going out to see a Jazzy Jeff show.

    And that was it. As we hustled out of the club into the nightime drizzle, the time closer to 2am, the trains now closed and few options for Brakes to get back home we all knew we'd had a great night. A great experience, that was a long time coming. Brakes, Kev, I know we are gonna be friends for life. What a great way to hang out and finally see Jeff after all these years. It was all meant to be.

    Translation: I'm a racist, so I must be right.



    Translation: I have never been to a country outside of america, so I am completely ignorant and have no understanding about the world. I couldn't even comprehend that a little boy in a "****hole country" would be happier than my own pathetic self.



    Translation: How dare someone protect young children and the poor by offering them healthcare, even though most of the world is able to do this, see if we spend less money somehow that will solve all our problems.



    Translation: Anyone who disagrees with me must be a scumbag, and I am so outraged by this I need to go on to a fan site and post my tirade anonymously to make me feel better.
