  1. Why in 2016 would a Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince tour matter? Will is 47, Jeff is 50, and they haven't released an official album together in 23 years. I think you have to understand hip hop and it's history and where it is now to understand it's importance. Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince paved the way for hip hop becoming popular, acceptable and worthy of recognition (First Grammy Award). They have sold over 40 million records and yet have barely toured. Will has always been busy with a TV show, a movie career and bringing up a young family. Right now seems a perfect time to celebrate the legacy of Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince. They have millions of fans young and old who found great joy from their music. It wasn't always serious, it was sometimes lighthearted, fun, feel good music. It's the kind of music that stays with you, that brings back positive memories. How can you not listen to Summertime and think of a warm sunny day and family barbecues? I think over the last few years Will has gotten away from what made him so successful, what made him so popular. The world tour and a return to music is exactly what the world needs right now. We want the Fresh Prince back, the YouTube views for Will & Jeff doing the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme on Graham Norton are a clear indication of the love people still have for some Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff. I think hip hop right now is really imbalanced. There is a lack of creditable female emcees, strong and positive messages and true artistry. The fact that young people think Will should stop rapping because he is 47 is a true sign of ignorance. I can't think of any other genre where a musician is told he has to stop making art because he's older. Is that what you would really say to Miles Davis or Charles Mingus or Donald Byrd? Would you tell James Brown to stop because he's older? Hell no! In fact with age comes wisdom so the music Will would create now would most likely be far more powerful than when he was younger. I know he has plenty to say. This Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince world tour should be a true celebration of what their music has done in the world. It has opened up doors to TV and to hollywood, to mainstream chart success and it has brought joy to so many people. No one ever did what Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince did now let's see them put on one of the great hip hop tours of all time.
  2. This is the full Jazzy Jeff Block Party Mix Tape straight from the archives. Jeff did this in 1993. This is his second best mixtape behind "The Vibe I'm On..." in my opinion.
  3. Wow!!! What a beat!!! Can't say much for the rapping though..

    FuQ - Disc 2 (U)

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=QT78YSIV Ok, so my Disc 2 (U) of my last hip hop album "Fresh, Understanding, Quality" aka F.U.Q. is done. Completed it a couple days ago. Disc 2 consists of collabs with other artists, well famous/already signed. Tracks with Da Brakes, Mike Petrow, etc, will be part of Disc 1 and/or Disc 3. Once my album done, I intend on checking out all music I've missed from everybody. I just didn't want to peep too much and get conflicted with my own ideas. FuQ (with....)
