  1. new jjfp album in january?

    march will be 13 years since lost and found dropped which means a generation of fans are now unfamiliar with will as a hip hop artist, this is the last chance for jjfp to be relevant in hip hop...

  4. Magnificent 3

  7. at the end of this year as we reflect on 2017 many of you JJFP peeps should feel grateful to have seen them live a few months back, maybe in the future more of us will be as fortunate, thanks for the memories JJFP!
  8. Get Lit

    sure this isn't will's greatest hit but i wouldn't go too far to say this is the worst song ever, will could do the abcs and sound better than all the garbage music with negative messages out today...
  9. 18 Years Since Big Willie Style

    yeah this album brings me back to a good time in my life like i mentioned, hopefully there will be more new music from JJFP soon enough https://www.axs.com/will-smith-s-big-willie-style-turns-20-years-old-this-year-116273
  10. Today is the 18 year anniversary of not only one of my favorite albums of all time but one of the main albums that got me into hip hop music, "Big Willie Style" by Will Smith aka Fresh Prince, I was a 12 year old 7th grader at the time in 1997 going to Central Regional Middle School and I remember receiving this album for Christmas that year, the first hip hop album I owned on CD. I previously had some LL Cool J, KRS One, and Coolio albums on cassette but I was mostly into r&b back then like Boyz II Men, Blackstreet, Dru Hill, and Mariah Carey, this album changed my life forever, it may not be Will's best work, over the years my favorites have beeen He's The DJ, I'm The Rapper, Code Red, and Willennium(which turned 16 last Monday along with another one of my favorites in hip hop Dr. Dre "2001") but like the 10 million+ who bought this album back then it has a special place in my heart and my album collection, this is a testiment to why he should be ranked among the greatest in hip hop music history as a true artist. This album is probably one of his most balanced of his career, that's why it touched so many people, there's so many favorite songs I have from memories of growing up in the Jersey Shore and listening to this album, but the one song that stands out over the years is "Just The Two Of Us" which is a sentimental song and an ode that I have with my papa who's now 81 years old and has dementia so it's bittersweet but I hold onto the positive memories through this song, that song actually motivated me among the most part in writing poetry and hip hop lyrics myself, god bless Will for being such a true artist, share your memories of the album below: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLx2R7zI9RUa8AFds1KmaZjNd8tPxiwW-N
  11. 18 Years Since Big Willie Style

    today's the 20th anniversary of this classic, would be nice to get some more activity on this board and get some good discussion on how this album impacted our lives...
  12. hey JJFP fam i just wanted to share how thankful i am once again for this board, it's brought me through a lot of dark times, especially recently, it's now fitting with the 20th anniversary of Big Willie Style how relevant real hip hop music is, god bless always, btw check out this recent poem I wrote "Time Of Season" fitting for these trying times: i know some of us feel sad since it's not the same as the past but if we give thanks for what we have we learn to feel more glad and things don't seem so bad it's really a refreshed perspective making the best of the lessons even when we can't see it the best is really still ahead there will be an end of debt to a feeling that's more blessed able to achieve like acing tests doing much more than breaking even there's more releasing of feelings spreading love this time of season
  13. Samples which Jazzy Jeff have used.

    welcome to the board djsmokeys, like your avatar! besides fresh prince and ll cool j krs one is up there as one of my all time favorite mcs, those 3 are my biggest influences because they always keep it true and keep it positive and are just damn great artists, i always believe if the 3 of them do a song together produced by quincy jones or dj premiere with jazzy on the wheels it'd resurrect hip hop from it's dead state...now i believe there's a section on this JJFP.com site of all the original samples that JJFP have used over the years, don't know if it's still there but feel free to look around, peace homie....
  14. yeah big willie style is will's thriller album, don't say nothin woulda been another legit single for that album, it's a perfect song for the haters, ala mama said knock you out:
  15. With all the panning of "Get Lit" it's time that I bring fresh perspective. On the most part since "Big Willie Style" the majority of Will's popular songs have been party songs and soundtrack songs with the exception of "Just The Two Of Us", songs like "Tell Me Why" and "The Rain" weren't hits, only true fans like us know them, so unfortunately I could see how casual people could judge him to say he hasn't been lyrical since "Summertime", like he said in "I Wish I made That": "Summer, Summertime seems like all I got". He let his Hollywood career ruin his hip hop image, he's tried to hard to keep up with the times rather than being true to the essence of real hip hop, the same thing has happened to LL Cool J in the last 20 years as well, my other favorite rapper with "Mr Smith" being his last album that his lyrical songs were released as hit singles that's why people think he fell off too, the sad thing is since 2Pac and Biggie died people don't pay attention to albums anymore and the only albums that people pay attention to have had lyrical hit singles, for instance in my eyes people should be saying Willennium is just as soulful as Jay Z Blueprint and LL's 10 should've been as big as 50's Get Rich Or Die Tryin' but they didn't release proper lyrical hit singles...

    i noticed that this thread hasn't had much life to it lately but i feel with everything going on in the world right now we all could use some support and loving so here I go, I wanted to share this john gray world message that i found recently:
  17. on another note i believe if will released a music video for "chasing forever" the "big willie style" album woulda had more critical acclaim that it does since it's the perfect wedding song:
  18. that song really has hit home for me over the past year after the loss of my pops a year ago on november 1st, life is precious,,,
  19. Yo Fred, what are you?

    JJFP need to do a remake of Nightmare On My Street to bring back life to the board....
  20. Yo Fred, what are you?

  21. Will on Carpool Karaoke

    here's the whole thing on youtube:
  22. Get Lit

    the music industry has gotten hideously worse in the last 12 years since lost & found and it was getting bad then, i repeat NOBODY is putting out anything groundbreaking in this time period compared to 1980-1999, i'm not being stuck in the past, i'm speaking from a quality standpoint with facts, the mainstream don't pay attention to rappers spitting bars anymore or else chuck d and krs one would be going multiplatinum...
  23. Get Lit

    realistically it turned out nas was right when hip hop is dead since most of the best rappers in hip hop history since all the best mcs are over 40 years old or they're dead, maybe the best thing for the old school acts to do is just make remixes of their classics since that what most people want to her from them..and yes as much as i like tyson and holyfield they don't measure up to ali and frazier, the same ting applies to hip hop, 99% of what's come out since 2000 is weak compared to 1980 to 1999, even lost and found ain't on the level of he's the dj, i'm the rapper, it's a FACT, old school will always be on top..
