Your favorite album and song

Recommended Posts

Guest josh_cabanlong

So I am a fresh fan of Will Smiths music. I always loved him as an actor, now I am discovering his music.
So my question is which album of his is your favorite? And which song in that album?
I don't have all his albums yet, so far I have:
Big Willie Style
Born to Reign
Greatest Hits
Homebase
Lost and Found
Willenium
I have more on order coming in the mail.

So far my favorite album is Lost and Found. Its very diverse and represents everything I already believe in. My favorite song in the album is Lost and Found. I love the message the song sends and the tone that he sings it in.

So, fellow fans, what are your favorites?

Hey welcome to the board Josh! You could see in my signature it says my favorite album is "He's The DJ, I'm The Rapper", that's old school hip hop at it's finest, the title track is just sick with Jazzy cuttin' it up and Fresh Prince killin' it on the mic, "Brand New Funk" is the ultimate party jam, "Code Red", "Big Willie Style", and "Lost & Found" are also big favorites of mine and "Willenium" is really the last unofficial JJFP since it was executive produced by JJFP and that was the freshman year of high school for me which brings back memories

Welcome to the board. For me the best album has to be Big Willie Style. I love the fact every song on that album had the potential to be a single and the vibe that whole album brought was just amazing! My favourite song from that album has to be 'Yes Yes Y'all'. That track is pure smoothness right there. Cool beat, slick lyrics! You can't go wrong!

It must be amazing discovering new JJFP tracks for the first time!

Happy listening

Kool Moe Dee says "Big Willie Style" is his favorite for Will, that album got something for everyone on it, you can't go wrong with over 10 million sold, and btw 'Yes Yes Y'all' is my favorite off of there too just like Da Brakes, those lines I got in my signature are hip hop quotables

My favorite album from Will is definitely Big Willie style, followed close by Lost and Found. But you need to separate Will's solo albums from JJFP albums. My favorite song from Will is Just Cruisin'. I just cant seem to get tired of the smoothness on that song, and the great production in the original and on the remix. I simply love it.

Welcome to the board dude!
