  1. I wish Will had done his apology as a video - it just reads like a PR statement cooked up by a publicist to me.
  2. I I'm more with Def Cem on this. I will always be a JJFP fan but I really don't like justifying violence with love or protection. It just wasn't acceptable. I thought Chris Rock handled himself pretty unbelievably after the incident. You can hear my full thoughts on why I thought it happened on the podcast here:
  3. Will Smith seems a little lost at the moment... at the end of Will's book he starts jumping out of helicoptors on dangerous bunjee jumps... starts doing halluigenic drugs and now he is assaulting people on live TV.. Will seems very lost right now... I hope he gets some help.
  4. hey @maxfly & @dabrakes wanna do a podcast on episodes 4-6 this Sunday morning? I can setup the zoom if you are free.
  5. Hey man - it may be a difference between US sales and overseas sales. Also the records shipped number VS units sold is differnt as well - Also when he refers to 60 million records sold that may include singles sales as well. From what I understand if you add up just the albums JJFP is about 6 million, then BWS would be 12 + willenium which I think is 5 and then adding in the others I think just album sales Will + JJFP I thought was about 30-32 million officially. So there is definitely a wide margin between what we know and what Will is talking about.
  6. Awesome man - why don't we do one mid-season - I've now watched 3 episodes and I love the show - it's getting better and better!
  7. Here’s my thoughts on the first 3 episodes:
  8. Hey man - you need to join me for a podcast about this. I thought Jabari Banks was really well cast, and does a great job as Will. I’m definitely invested after one episode. It’s something completely different, but that’s why I like it.
  9. So what do you think of Bel Air? The first 3 episodes dropped today.
  10. Amazing Dave - enjoy Brand New Funk live and represent for the JJFP fans!
  11. Hey man - great to hear from you! I think the "Will" book is phenomenal - I wish more people came back to the forum because there is so much in the book to discuss. He really goes in deep on becoming a battle rapper and the making of the Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince albums. You probably misses some music he dropped on his Instagram & YouTube. Will from Home was on Snapchat - there is an interview with Jeff on that after he almost died from Covid. There's still heaps of things going on - just less people on here to talk about it unfortunately. Hopefully the book brings some people back!
  12. My thoughts on the first 9 chapters: https://open.spotify.com/episode/7lVMG8BZmzhqKyWGEaxQk3?si=aspejnXGTfa4wkuSrKNwNw&context=spotify%3Ashow%3A3D4hyMgdkz9aCpMIuQbUzs
  13. Great idea. Here are a few things I’ve found. fascinating in the book. - Jeff having cancer as a teenager - I never knew this. - JL becoming their manager because he had a fax machine. - Will’s version of why they got rid of Ready Rock C - I loved the way Will described him becoming a battle rapper in Philly. - his first girlfriend cheating on him. You can hear the pain as he recounts that part of his life.
  14. I’m up to chapter 2 of Will, listening to the audiobook - I think it’s phenomenal. We are really getting to see the inner Will and why he was so successful and the hurt and pain he carried inside. Definitely recommend everyone getting it.
  15. Awesome Dave! London is sold out! I'm currently watching the live stream in Philly!
  16. Wow this looks so good. Can't wait to see it. Unfortunately they aren't releasing in Australia until January ahead of the Australian Open.
  17. Looks like Will might finally get his Oscar. Very promising!
  18. The Mary J. bilge documentary on Amazon was amazing, and featured Chucky. Rest In Peace. He created some great music.
  19. Oh man that's a shame, Chris Collins worked on 'The Wire' so I thought he would have been good.
  20. I'm going to try and do a new one with @JumpinJack AJ !!
  21. The Will Smith Podcast is now up on Spotify - subscribe to it today!
