  1. I just got it in the mail 2day...i'm listening 2 it right now. I'm so happy 2 have it on CD and not just on vinyl. Of course i waz happy b4 cuz i didn't know it waz on CD...ha ha.

    I like the way they have these 50's/60's doo-wop vocals...but this production just sounds a bit 2 dated for 1989. I guess that what happens when u mix Paul Shaffer and Russle Simmons. Still a dope song. I like alot of 60's music so it's cool 2 have FP flowing over a track that has this extra old-skool feel.
  2. This waz posted over at the WS board last week. However, that article said that it waz rumored that other celebrities were ushered in thru' the back...which made it look shady that they were charging Will. The other article didn't mention FP bringing a group of people with him...tho' he rarely makes appearances alone.

    I suggested on the other board that Prince waz jealous only cuz he's Prince...but Will is the Fresh Prince.
  3. I have an XXL interview from them individually talking about the good times. It came out in like 2000 i think. Kid said that he still works on music and may try 2 put something out. He waz working with Def Jef.

    Overall, Play hit rock bottom in his life after House Party 3. He waz re-born and devoted his life 2 God. He did some producing 4 Gospel-Hip-Hop music (my brother has one of the albums).

    Kid of course did some small acting bits including his most well-known stuff on Sister Sister. He waz hosting alot of family-styled TVs shows 4 awhile. During the late 90's (i think) he got in a serious car accident (i think with Grand Puba) but he obviously recovered.

    Back 2 that article tho'...i do remember at point, somebody who knew both of them tricked them and invited them over 2 dinner on the same nite and they hung out for hours talking and stuff.

    I think that Kid said at the end of the article that there waz no plans for Kid 'N Play 2 get back 2gether...but never say never. I'd love 2 see them get 2gether again 2. I have all their albums and they very much have a similar musical chemistry and forumula 2 JJ+FP.
  4. I can't help u, but i can agree that the song is dope. It's on the "House Party 3" soundtrack (and waz also a single 4 the album). I almost got the 12" single a few months ago but i'm so tight on money that i passed it up. The Kid 'N Play trax on that HP3 soundtrack were so dope, i can't believe they went their seperate ways...man, i miss them.
  5. Doing something u enjoy doing or something u are interested in (or something releated 2 what u'd like 2 do 4 the rest of your life) is always a good thing. Either way, just getting the experience of having a job, working with other people, and working with customers is the kinda thing u can take on 2 any other job u go 2.

    The grocery store waz your average job 4 me. No real future in it, but it's money and i guess it waz a good place 2 start. At a movie theater, u'd get 2 see movies 4 free...which is always nice...ha ha.
  6. Yeah, in a place like that, u gotta keep in mind that it's stressful for people 2 take their pets 2 a place where the might HAVE to make them uncomfortable...and owners are usually very protective of them.

    At the photography studio i work at, people are of course going 2 be extra protective of their families, pets, children, etc...so if u don't make them happy with your photography...some people get really mad. Being mad or aggresive would only make the situation worse...after all, they DO have a reason 2 be the way they are (sometimes).

    There are also people out there who simply like 2 fight. And it ruins their day 2 not give them the fight they want. However, there has been 2 or 3 times when i've gone up2 the front of the store 2 back-up a co-worker having problems with a customer. They kinda people who are out 2 cause problems...the second they take it 2 far, i'm ready 2 take it 2 the hood and tear them up...ha ha.
  7. Yeah, it's important 2 keep in mind, that even when we aren't happy with our jobs...2 remember that we are lucky 2 have them. Customers can also get annoying (no matter where u work) but i think that the best thing 2 do is get back at them by being nice and calm. A customer has 2 go pretty far 2 actually have me get offensive towards them...and if possible, i usually just walk away from them and get someone else 2 take care of them rather than risking causing a scene and losing my job.
  8. Thanx 4 the newz!! He's doing Jelly Beans also!! That's kinda cool, that's a movie produced by T-Boz (TLC) and Dallas Austin which is about the skating rink they grew up at where the music and dancing kept them outta the streets. Bow Wow doesn't bug me anymore like he used 2. Since he's grown up (and dropped that ill song "My Baby"), he's been cool with me. After all, he's one of the only people that's putting out Hip-Hop that's not loaded with explict lyrics.
  9. I waz wondering what kinda jobs u all have/had. In an attempt 2 get 2 know each other better, i waz interested in seeing what kinda things we've all done. So, 4 those who wanna participate, let us know where u work(ed) and what u do/did.

    My 1st job waz with the grocery store, Food Lion. I waz a bagger. However, as the years went on, i did basically everything but ran register. I cleaned, stocked, all kinds of stuff. I actually got the job only cuz my mom's friend waz the manager there. The 1st 2 years were actually really fun. I had a great group of co-workers and we just had alot of fun...business waz also kinda slow usually. I stayed there another 3 years cuz i waz expecting profits (adding up 2 thousands of dollars) but i realized in my last months that i didn't have enuff hours during some of those years 2 get it. Since things got worse and worse (and i obviously didn't wanna work at a grocery store all my life), i got outta there.

    Currently, i'm working at The Picture People. It's a photography studio aimed mostly at kids...but we do EVERYTHING. There, i'm training 2 be a manager...i do some of the best photography in the store and do all the lab stuff as well. I love this job (as much as u can love a job). Holidays and big coupon events are horrible when we are busy...but otherwise it's fun. The website for the company is www.picturepeople.com.

    My other job, which i hardly call a job is at a dinner theater. We have shows every Friday and Saturday nite as well as Sunday matinees EVERY WEEKEND. Most shows run about 2 months with a total of 6 shows each season. We rehearse for about a month 4 each show (while the other is running). We also help prepare the food and wait tables, THEN we do the show. The audience gets 2 hit-up a salad bar and hot buffet, then we bring desert out 2 them (which often has half the cast stuffing their face b4 the show....ha ha. We get paid a lil' bit 2 do the show, but the real money is waiting tables during the dinner hour (it pays off 4 those long rehearsals). It hardly feels like work 2 since u are doing something u love.

    Well, those are the main jobs i have/had. What do y'all do?!?
  10. Yeah, i saw that 2 nites ago. I waz gonna go 4 it, but since it's not new music from Jeff, i'm gonna let this one go. After all, by the time i would be gettin it in the mail, it would only be a few days b4 it gets released here in the US. On top of that, it's probably missing the full artwork that the commercial release will get.

    If i waz in the UK, i'd definitly get it tho.' Cuz i'd get 2 enjoy it weeks b4 it got released.
  11. In 1989, Paul Shaffer (David Letterman's right hand man) released and album with a track called "When The Radio Is On" that features a rare, nearly un-heard of rap by Fresh Prince. Just 2 years ago we found the 12" single of this song (featuring remixes) on ebay. Well, 12" is nice and all..but we all know CD quality is superior. Well while i waz checkin' out ebay 2nite, i found the CD PROMO SINGLE of this track (which i didn't know existed). Much 2 my luck, it waz on Buy It Now for only $5.99. Just wanted 2 share my joy with y'all.

    Here's da link...
  12. As much as we dog Columbia, the sad thing is, they would have put Will's track on the soundtrack. That Bad Boys II soundtrack waz awful. Nearly every artist waz wack...and the ones that wern't only donated album filler trax that they wouldn't put on their own albums.

    The Wild Wild West soundtrack waz nice, Overbrook put a solid soundtrack 2gether mixing established artists and new artists. It wazn't the best soundtrack ever, but i can still pop it in and listen 2 it start 2 finish. The Men In Black soundtrack is classic. It had the same formula and better music. But that BBII soundtrack, WOW, it's awful. Basically, it's totally commerical rap artists. Very little talent can be found on it. There's not one ounce of substance 2 it.
  13. Yeah, the mixtape is gonna be released in less than 20 days, Soundtrack To The City has been in production 4 a while and Will and Jeff did get 2gether 2 record stuff 4 Will's solo album. If u look online, u can find a 12" of A Touch of Jazz trax. Jeff didn't produce them but he did mix 2 of the 3 trax on it.
  14. I said something about this years ago. Will said in an interview b4 the album came out, that he wazn't putting "Wild Wild West" on his album (obviously cuz it dosen't fit). Of course Columbia stepped in and insisted that it be on there since it waz a huge hit. Will definitly recorded that interlude as a way 2 show that he didn't want it as a part of the album.
  15. No way, i don't think u can blame them for the way Born To Reign waz taken. If u don't like them, then u don't like them, but i think that the lack of promotion killed it's success. Will's experimental efforts on the album is what turned some fans away from it. I think some people wanna blame Tra-Knox so that they don't have 2 blame Will 4 not giving them what they wanted.
  16. [quote=Hero1,Apr 2 2004, 10:47 PM]it may be funny for you guys... but when you've been waiting for a jjfp album for 11 years you dont wanna be played like that april fools joke or not[/quote]
    I waz so happy when i started reading cuz of the whole mtv.com source thing...i waz smiling with my jaw dropped (trust me, it's not very comfortable). However, when i got 2 the middle, i waz thinkin' this is just 2 good 2 be true and the reference 2 Columbia seems 2 fake. My heart sunk...u totally had me 4 a minute...which actually made me mad even tho' it waz just a joke.
  17. That would be cool...i would totally go out and get that JUST 4 that CD with unreleased trax. However, this dosen't make ANY sense. Will himself didn't like Wild Wild West much, why would he choose it as part of a "Greatest of All Time" box set when he has other movies like ID4 and Six Degrees that he could tack on as a part of it. The MIB, WWW, and BB soundtracks were the only soundtracks that had great success...why would he be putting the Ali and MIB2 soundtrack as a part of it. We are also talking about Will here, he dosen't like 2 mix his music with his acting. And that duet album...there waz only ever rumors of Will doing a track 4 one of B.I.G.'s album...where did the Funkmaster Flex, Jam Master Jay, and 2Pac collaborations come from!?!?!?!? It's also strange that Funkmaster Flex is the only person they mentioned that waz still alive. Also, since Will wazn't recording thru' out 1995 and 1996, it means Will waz recording vocals 4 those 2pac, B.I.G. trax AFTER they were both murdered. Another thing 2 think about, by releasing this, do u know how much paper work would have 2 be done 2 put all this copywritten stuff 2gether that has 4 the most part been done by totally different companies. Another thing that seems shady is the price....$150!!?!?!?! Usually 6-DVD sets go 4 that much...it says this a 15 peice deal, the price seems 2 low 2 me.

    Also, where's the release date? Where's the promotion? I'd love this 2 be true...but it seems rediculous.

    Oh yeah, and why would it end with "Jazzy Jeff was unavailable for comment"...it dosen't mention Jeff at all and what would he have 2 say about it...ha ha.
