  1. Yeah Will vs. LL would be dope. But I doubt if that will happen.
  2. ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ Drama Reboot at Peacock Changes Showrunners https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/fresh-prince-of-bel-air-drama-reboot-peacock-showrunner-1235033805/
  3. Great trailer! Hope it will do well. I play tennis myself so I’m definitely gonna check it.
  4. Thanks for posting! This is the first them that I hear them do the Street Remix of Boom! live. Great stuff!
  5. Dope! Those are the ones. Thanks! Didn’t know they were still online.
  6. Happy 30th birthday to Homebase! It was released on July 23 in 1991. That makes it 30 years old today. I wished they released a special edition or a remastered version. But I guess that’s not happening. I wonder if Will or Jeff will post something about it on FB or IG.
  7. These snippets and freestyles are no longer on his IG profile. Anyone downloaded them or saved them?
  8. RIP Biz. Never really got into his music. I first heard him on “So Fresh”. Gotta check out some of his older stuff.
  9. I call BS on this story. Just a guy looking for attention. It’s easy to talk about this when Tupac isn’t around to confirm or deny it.
  10. I just hope we get some more info about his music and the start of his career. But I wouldn’t be surprised if it focused more on his inspirational quotes and life lessons.
  11. Will was famous here in Belgium at the time of ID4. The FPOBA was on TV and people were excited about this movie. I remember seeing commercials on TV all the time. So the fact that he’s black didn’t play any role at the time. It still doesn’t.
  12. Looks great! Now let’s hope Will releases some new music so you get some more visitors to your site. And some new members here.
  13. More info and pictures on this site. https://wizkids.com/Summertime/
  14. A Fresh Prince of Bel Air board game is coming to turn your life upside down Summer, summer, summertime. Hang with DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince in an upcoming board game based on the beloved 1990s sitcom. DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince: Summertime is a quick card game inspired by the award winning 1991 song that was released alongside the Fresh Prince of Bel Air television show. In the tabletop game, players are invited to sit back and unwind with DJ Jazzy Jeff and the titular Fresh Prince at The Spot. However, an afternoon of relaxing and dancing is interrupted when the players are challenged to prove whether they are worthy of joining the rappers’ crew. In the game, two to four players take turns to play cards in order to gather the most cool points possible. Every round begins with the top card of the spot deck being revealed, before players choose a combination of energy and action cards from their hand - should they have a boost card, then players will be able to use those on top of what they play to gain more lighting bolts. When choosing an energy card, players will benefit from playing one that matches the vibe of the current spot. For example, the players will want to be maxin’ if the spot dictates this. Action cards can enable players to perform a certain action, as long as it is not cancelled by another player. Players place their action and energy cards facedown, before revealing them all at once. Certain actions will cancel others and provide the player with a benefit on top of that. For instance, a cruise card cancels groove cards and boosts the player’s chances of acquiring the current spot card. Once all actions have been played or cancelled, players compare how many lightning bolts they have collected via their energy and action cards, with the player holding the most lighting bolts taking the spot card. After eight rounds, players then total their cool points by checking the amounts on the spot cards they’ve collected, as well as adding any cool points gained by collecting the right combination of spot card types. Players can also get cool points by gathering spot cards with vibes that match those of their player character, whose identities will be revealed at the end of the game. Whichever player holds the most cool points is the winner. DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince: Summertime was co-created by Omari Akil and Hamu Dennis, who have both previously worked together on Rap Godz and Hoop Godz, with Akil designing the two games and Dennis creating the artwork for them. Wizkids is the publishing company responsible for releasing DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince: Summertime, a studio that’s otherwise most well known for launching tabletop titles such as the horror board game Fury of Dracula: Fourth Edition and the miniatures series Heroclix. The Fresh Prince of Bel Air is a television series which aired between 1990 and 1996 starring Will Smith, James Avery and Janet Hubert-Whitten. In the show, Will Smith played a fictional version of himself as a teenager who is forced to live in the wealthy neighbourhood of Bel Air in Los Angeles, after being sent from West Philadelphia by his mother. The show, which ran for over six seasons, is best known for its catchy theme song, alongside the various other songs that were inspired by it. A reunion episode which reunited the original cast was released in November last year, with a reboot based on a fan film currently in development. DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince: Summertime is set to be released sometime “soon” at a retail price of $19.99 (£14). https://www.dicebreaker.com/amp/games/dj-jazzy-jeff-and-the-fresh-prince-summertime/news/fresh-prince-summertime-game-announced
  15. 'Independence Day' Director Says Will Smith Was Almost Rejected for Being Black The studio believed he wouldn’t appeal to foreign markets. Ahead of this year’s 4th of July celebrations, The Hollywood Reporterrevisited 20th Century Fox (now 20th Century Studios)’ ’90s sci-fi blockbuster Independence Day to mark the film’s 25th-anniversary. Sitting down with director Roland Emmerich and writer Dean Devlin, the outlet learned that studio executives were against casting Will Smith as Captain Steven Hiller. Despite already being a household name, the executives believed that Smith wouldn’t appeal to foreign audiences because he was Black. “The studio said, ‘No, we don’t like Will Smith. He’s unproven. He doesn’t work in international [markets]‘,” Emmerich said. “[Fox] said, ‘You cast a Black guy in this part, you’re going to kill foreign [box office],’” Devlin added. “Our argument was, ‘Well, the movie is about space aliens. It’s going to do fine foreign.’ It was a big war, and Roland really stood up for [Smith] – and we ultimately won that war.” Despite not necessarily being plausible, director Roland Emmerich threatened that if they were not able to secure stars Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum they would be taking the film over to Universal Studiosright before production was set to begin. https://hypebeast.com/2021/7/independence-day-director-will-smith-almost-rejected-black-info?utm_term=Autofeed&utm_campaign=facebook_post&utm_medium=social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR3DVArZYmxBHYM6lw3sxPZXFDV38eGyo5w5t3AZ6mPh5yqwFqzdeudjaao#Echobox=1625384636
  16. JADA PINKETT PLEADED 2PAC NOT TO BEAT DOWN WILL SMITH SAYS OUTLAWZ RAPPER NAPOLEON https://hiphopdx.com/news/id.62958/title.jada-pinkett-pleaded-2pac-not-to-beat-down-will-smith-says-outlawz-rapper-napoleon?fbclid=IwAR0SrPLqvvhRrrlvStIchq8NMWcQ2oQzssncpT_J2Uj2e0Wj0p5Jbh2h9rk
  17. https://willthebook.com Coming November 9 2021 One of the most dynamic and globally recognized entertainment forces of our time opens up fully about his life, in a brave and inspiring book that traces his learning curve to a place where outer success, inner happiness, and human connection are aligned. Along the way, Will tells the story in full of one of the most amazing rides through the worlds of music and film that anyone has ever had. Will Smith’s transformation from a fearful child in a tense West Philadelphia home to one of the biggest rap stars of his era and then one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood history, with a string of box office successes that will likely never be broken, is an epic tale of inner transformation and outer triumph, and Will tells it astonishingly well. But it's only half the story. Will Smith thought, with good reason, that he had won at life: not only was his own success unparalleled, his whole family was at the pinnacle of the entertainment world. Only they didn't see it that way: they felt more like star performers in his circus, a seven-days-a-week job they hadn't signed up for. It turned out Will Smith's education wasn't nearly over. This memoir is the product of a profound journey of self-knowledge, a reckoning with all that your will can get you and all that it can leave behind. Written with the help of Mark Manson, author of the multi-million-copy bestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, Will is the story of how one person mastered his own emotions, written in a way that can help everyone else do the same. Few of us will know the pressure of performing on the world's biggest stages for the highest of stakes, but we can all understand that the fuel that works for one stage of our journey might have to be changed if we want to make it all the way home. The combination of genuine wisdom of universal value and a life story that is preposterously entertaining, even astonishing, puts Will the book, like its author, in a category by itself. “It’s easy to maneuver the material world once you have conquered your own mind. I believe that. Once you've learned the terrain of your own mind, every experience, every emotion, every circumstance, whether positive or negative, simply propels you forward, to greater growth and greater experience. That is true will. To move forward in spite of anything. And to move forward in a way that brings others with you, rather than leave them behind.” —Will Smith

  22. Rakim Details Connection To DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s “Summertime” DX: I recently heard Eric B. on The Combat Jack Show state that the beat to DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince’s classic “Summertime” song was originally slated for you. Can you verify that? Rakim: Nah, it was ironic that me and Eric B. had sampled it, and we had it ready to go. But when they came out with it, a lot of people thought it was me because of the style he used. But it was one of those things where that was them. I didn’t write it. That was Will and Jeff. DX: But Eric stated that he had crafted the beat for you, but some industry people and friends who heard it before it came out were in your ear telling you that the beat was somewhat soft and out of character for you. Is there any validity to that? Rakim: Umm, yeah. It was something he had on the backburner, nahmean? Again, it was something that we wanted to use, but we felt that the time wasn’t right because of the choice of all the records that we had on the first album. But that’s a joint that you can’t deny. You know, maybe it could’ve been hooked up a little more street-ready, and it was something that we thought was a hit record. But we didn’t want to come out and grasp on that first album. We was trying to ease back on that. Source: https://hiphopdx.com/interviews/id.2937/title.rakim-tackles-paid-in-full-will-smith-mafioso-rap
