    JumpinJack AJ got a reaction from gosia in Will Smith Announces New Book   
    Unless you're referring to something I'm not recalling, I don't really fault him for not putting his business out in the street.  Some of the personal stuff that came out later wasn't really the public's business. I wouldn't consider him keeping some things private lying. 
    I'm also hoping he focuses a lot on the early days and music, but I'm prepared for this to be aimed at the mainstream audience.

    JumpinJack AJ got a reaction from Ale in Rest in Peace Biz Markie   
    As an optimist, I always thought he was going to pull out of his health issues. In recent years, Biz has lived about an hour from me and frequently DJ's at a venue I like, but I never made it out on the nights he was spinning. I'm really regretting that.  I did see him spin at the Will Smith & Friends event years ago. I also saw him at the recording for MTV's Back In Black, Men In Black special.  The last time I saw him was when I saw TLC in 2015, in which New Kids On The Block brought him out in the middle of their set to perform. 
    Biz Markie is one of a kind. He is Hip-Hop's class clown. Few emcees are as fun-loving as him. I think because he can be so silly, we don't recognize him for the song writer that he is, the producer he is, and how much music knowledge he has. There have been some great tributes over the last couple days and they shed more light on that side of him. There's a reason he was tight with JJ+FP. 
    We lost a legend. It's a shame that it took this loss for him to get some light shed on his music, but let's hope it's recognized the way it deserves to be.

    Yeah, I love Volume 2. I posted it on my Facebook after I got the heads up for Speech and Eshe about it. I should have tagged you in it. I'm glad you posted the new R&B one here, because I've wanted to watch it, but haven't had the time yet.

    JumpinJack AJ got a reaction from Lerkot in LL Cool J vs. Will Smith?   
    The whole battle idea is corny to me. If it's not rooted in reality, it just isn't interesting. They are talking about battling as presentation or a setup.  The Fresh Prince and LL Cool J have been my two favorite emcees for about 30 years. I'd rather just hear them do some songs together.  It's long overdue.   Shoot, with their history, I"d just like to hear them talk for an hour about their music and history together.

    I can't believe all the familiar names from way way back in the day are still on here, I miss you guys. It's so cool that this forum is still active.
    What's up AJ! You once shipped a JJFP B-Sides & Rarities mixtape to me after an AIM chat years ago and to this day it's one of my favorite CDs ever haha (it had "From Da South" on it!!)
    And Tim you were the one who introduced me to Hieroglyphics and that essentially took me down the rabbit hole of underground hip hop which changed the way I listened to music.
    Is Da Brakes still here?? I miss our forum text-battle tournaments! LOL
    Hope everyone is well :)

    Yes, it's from Word 2. The song was done before He's The DJ, I'm The Rapper.  The verse from it made it into the live version of "Brand New Funk."

    JumpinJack AJ got a reaction from Ale in 'GETTIN' JIGGY WIT IT' SO SO DEF REMIX w/ JERMAINE DUPRI, CAM'RON, R.O.C., + BIG PUN   
    Most of us know about this elusive remix.  It popped up on a few mixtapes (on actual cassettes) back in 1997/1998. It often had the mixtape host screaming over it. It was never released, not even on a proper promotional CD, cassette, or 12".  However, nearly 10 years ago, it was briefly available on Amazon digitally. I'm not sure about other digital platforms. The remix then disappeared.  Since FP didn't have music coming out, I haven't been looking for it. However, I just noticed that it's back. For those of you who didn't get to buy/download it, and for those that are new to this remix, here it is. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073J35F29/ref=dm_ws_sp_ps_dp
    Interestingly, the So So Def remix that was released on singles overseas was much smoother and featured LaTocha from Xscape on the hook. Here's a version of it that a DJ tweaked.
    The strange thing about the credits for this remix is that is says there's a rap performed by R.O.C. and that Lord Tariq + Peter Gunz provided additional vocals. Perhaps there's another version of it featuring R.O.C. (one of the dopest late 90's/early 00's emcees who never had his label released) and LT+PG on the hook.

    Remember when JJ+FP performed "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It", "Switch" and "Yo Home To Bel-Air/FPOBA theme" at Live 8 in 2005? The event was huge and featured performances from dozens of other artists.  Well, they just recently released the audio.  You can check it out here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SG79DTZ/ref=dm_ws_sp_ps_dp

    Damn Ted, you’ve been the most actively disappointed in Will not making music, then when he does, because it’s not quite the flavour you want, it’s an issue too   calm down dude, it’s not that serious. 
     
    This track is dope. Logics new age but with an old school twist and not a mumble rapper and Wills flow and content is somehow nostalgically fresh. Can’t hate on this in the slightest.

    JumpinJack AJ got a reaction from Hero1 in Will Smith to record new music for 'Aladdin'!   
    Yes! This is perfect for the end credits. DJ Khaled is mad annoying, so I'm glad that he definitely took a back seat on this.  The music definitely has a late 90's/early 2000's feel to it.  The way he says "never had a friend like me" feels like he borrowed from 2Pac's "Never Had A Friend Like Me." I get the feeling his going to let Aladdin be a vehicle to finally get his own music out.

    JumpinJack AJ got a reaction from Hero1 in First ever look at Nightmare on my street video!   
    I can't believe this day has come.  Like, I'm speechless.  Honestly.
    I love the video. It's strange, but I feel like a lot of the things I always imagined about it were actually in the video.  Can you imagine how HUGE this would have been in 1988!?
    Nancy, who on earth are you, other than an angel that has played a role in answering our prayers?  This appears to be from a promo tape. I've heard that the video never aired, but I've also hear that it aired once. Based on the beginning of the video, this definitely looks like it was off of a promo VHS tape? Were you with Jive or part of the team that worked on the video?
    Man, I wish there was a master copy that wasn't victim to VCR tracking and deteriorated tape. The lighting in this looks incredible. The reactions and expressions in this video that are blurred are likely comedic gold.
