  1. i love hearing every new confirmation!! I was wondering too Julie with venues! The trouble is o2 is HUGE! I have no doubt that JJFP could fill it but it is a risk. However, smaller venues will likely be jam packed... Hard one to call

    So I Saw Jeff Last Night...

    So last night I rode solo and went to see Jeff perform at a local club near to me and as usual his set was amazing. I haven't been able to see the last couple of shows so was excited to get back to seeing Jeff do his thing! It amazes me that in all the countless shows I've seen Jeff spin no two sets are ever the same and he manages to keep the crowd partying from start to finish. There was no Chris there this time so I don't know whether the Vinyl Destination series is still going or if he has another project on the go at the moment. Steve and Ferno (along with Dayne) where there and as usual they really make you feel like part of the family. I really have to stop and count my blessings that as a lifelong fan of JJFP, I, and a few others from the board are in the position to attend as many Jeff shows as we do and also get to hang out with the man himself afterwards. Jeff played an eclectic mix of music which touched every person in the club... some of the highlights for me where Summertime, Jeff's Reggae set, Jeff's West Coast Hip Hip Set and he even slipped in the Fiesta remix. This is the first time seeing Dayne being Jeff's MC since Skillz has taken up DJ'ing full time and I must say he was extremely good. He had the crowd hyped and knew Jeff's set inside out. His freestyles were on point as well and extremely well delivered. He is also a humble dude as well. Having had a brief conversation with him, I can see him doing big things in the music biz. I was so pleased to get the physical copy of the album as well. So after Jeff's set, I get access to the VIP section and get to have a chat with Mr Magnificent. I immediately tell him how ridiculously excited I am about the tour scheduled for next year and how we are all waiting with bated breath for more details to be announced. I also say that I am looking forward to when Will and Jeff get their project underway and we finally get that illustrious JJFP album we have all been waiting for. Jeff said that the tour is going to be something special and told me some of the ideas they have spoken about for it. (it sounds great!!!) He said that Will is really excited to do it so I think we can safely say that it will happen in some form or fashion. Whilst I was there, Jeff also told me about the new DJ Jazzy Jeff app that had literally just been released on the app store (he received the notification whilst we were talking). He encouraged me to download it so of course I did and he said that I would be the first person in the world to have it which I was pretty chuffed about! All in all it was an amazing night and the best part about it is I get to do it all again with Kev again on Saturday! There was so many more questions I wanted to ask that I'll hopefully remember for the weekend. All in all a great night with the baddest DJ on the planet and his amazing team around him. Shout out out to Neil from the forum as well who spotted me from across the room who I had a brief conversation with! Great meeting you dude and hope to see you at another Jeff show soon.

    Movement on Bad Boys III

    I actually think it may be called "Bad Boys For Life" If not then it definitely should be a prequel "Bad Babies"

    Movement on Bad Boys III

    I've got my money on it being called 'Naughty Boys'
  6. I reckon we'll get a Will Smith album and then a JJFP album at some point in the future...
  7. We have heard this verse over the Clipse beat. It was put up a couple months back when Will performed it at the Suicide Squad wrap (I think). Admittedly it was bad audio quality but it was the one we were trying to decipher the lyrics to
  8. It looks so good.. The vibe is just right
  9. When I read one of the interviews this also concerned. What did make me feel a bit better about it is that Jeff said that "we haven't started working on our stuff yet" which makes me think that they have something in the pipeline or that the intentions are for a JJFP project. it would be great if after this album Will and Jeff do the tour and then get straight into a pure JJFP album. I do agree though that Jeff is one of the best producers out there and is extremely underrated. I don't feel he ever gets props for his beat making skills or gets included on 'those lists' whenever we hear about them.

    What Are You Listening To? XXII

    Big Willie Style followed by Willenium!!
  13. I think for some of the shows they'll be some old school legends! Remember in London for the iRobot gig he brought out Biz... Either way it will be ridiculous! I'm just hoping we dont just get 'The Hits' and we get some of the album tracks/b sides
  14. We all need to get to a date and represent! How amazing would that be?

    Will Smith with Zane Lowe

    It really does feel like we are teenagers again! I remember the conversations on the board as to whether we wanted one last album or a world tour! Looks as if we may get both! 2016 is going to be an unreal year for Will..
  18. Jeff has got a lot of questions coming his way on the 24th!!
