  1. I think the great thing is that his career has spanned such a long time that 2 or more generations will remember him for diffrent things. I myself will always think of "Nightmare" or "Girls Aint Nothin but Trouble" but someone a little younger will say "Summertime" then teenagers will go to "MIB" and Jiggy. Thats why he is the greatest of all times.

  2. cheers for that Max, I'd seen it before, but it's always good to see. That video right there is something to show people who don't believe JJFP are real hip-hop, it's undeniable...

    I know what you mean. most people only know "Parents Just Dont Understand" along with a few other storytelling songs of his and totally disrespect him when they have never heard JJ & FP go off House Party Style. :tantrum:

  3. Well, since I pretty much find songs of Will Smith and if even possible, try to find remixes of some of them. I really much want to hear more of his songs, since almost over 80% of my music library is him and with Jazzy Jeff.

    dude, get involved on the forum and you'll be sorted!

    U have got to have a certain amount of forum posts before you can get acces to these songs ? Or what do you have to do ? Thnx for the info

    nah, it's not a certain amount of posts - that wouldn't work because people would just go crazy posting rubbish to get to the required number of posts... just stick around for a while and become an active member...

    Will someone tell us when that is?

  4. it's really quite simple. rock the house came out in 87 and he's the dj came out in 88

    the reason that GANBT refers to PJDU and NOMS is because if u look closely, it says "Girls Aint Nothin But Trouble (1988 Remix)"

    the original version of RTH that came out on champ records and word up records had the original version of GANBT which has slightly different lyrics and a different sound to it. by far, most people actually listen to the 1988 remixed version of it thinking its the original. the original version is pretty rare and hard to come by.

    Do you know how to get it. I have it on tape but I want it on CD or MP3.Besides my copy isnt the original, its on a mixed tape.

  5. See I have to disagree with most of you because I think that Code Red is the weakest. I'll explain, It starts with a remake of "As We Go" sort of. Then its just loaded down with party tracks that are an inch deep and a mile wide. True they have nice beats but they are truely lacking great lyrics. The only solid tracks are Shadow Dreams and No Place Like Home and neither are tracks that I HAVE to listen to. I havent really fallin for this disk at 3 diffrent times in my life and to me that says alot. The only song that I truely like to listen to all the time is "I Cant Wait To Be With You" and its not even in my top 20 tracks of all times. :sorry:

    How many times you listened to Code Red? Just Party Tracks? What is Twinkle Twinkle(I'm not a star) Shadow Dreams Aint No Place Like Home Just Kickin It Cant Wait To Be With You?? I think it is one of the best party rap albums ..scratch that I think its the best party rap album of all time.. BUT its brilliance is that you can throw it on at a party but it has an equal amount of deep and solid tracks like the ones I just mentioned.. Twinkle Twinkle is one of jazzy jeff fresh prince's best tracks ever...

    I have listened to it a total of 12 times all the way through. You made my point for me about the party tracks. We will simply have to agree to disagree on this one. I started listening to rap in 81 and have seen his career since the start. Back in 87' everything they were doing was cutting edge. Someone mentioned that the lyrics were simple. Not if you put them in context of what was out at the time. Other then Rakim most rap songs didnt have as many lyrics as what you see now-a-days. Listen to Run DMC sometime and LL's Radio CD those were simple lyrics. Some of the combinations were magic and he flowed like few did or do these days. Code Red to me seemed thrown together at the last minute but thats only my opinion. I'm glad to see that so many liked it. Thats the greatness about JJ & FP they created music for themselves and if others liked it cool. :thumbsup:

  6. He's a much better rapper. But, he has never let me down at the box office either. So I always refer to him as my fav entertainer. Because from CD's to TV's, to movie's back to rthymin his life stats makes Jordan's 6 rings seem common. Not to mention he called his shot in "Here We Go Again"

    "We went to the studio and then we made a video

    We didn't make a movie though, maybe the next year or so"

    Either way the man has skillz. :mygod:

  7. "Look, it's simple, just admit it

    Jeff is the deffest, you wanted a battle, forget it

    You're a fool, you're slippin, you're looney, you're crazy

    No ifs, no ands it be just your butt, baby

    The music is dope, don't fight it, just give in

    Hey yo Jeff, man, tell em why you did it

    (I made the beat hype, but still kinda smooth)

    And it's dope, right (For sure)

    Jazzy's Groove"

    The mixing is great and the track is movin. Not to mention using Rakim and PE will always help sway my vote. :jazzy:

  10. I seen them in Columbus,OH in 88' with Run DMC and Puplic Enemy. At the end of their set Freddy came out and pulled Jeff out from behind his turntables. It was awesome. If he comes anywhere close to me anytime soon I'll see him again.

    PS what do you have to do to get in the Rear Tracks forum. It keeps saying I need to be active. I thought I was?

  12. I just got Code Red this week and its been in hot rotation since. But I still have to say that my fav's are in order:

    1-In This Corner - Mainly because no matter how bad my day is going this disk brings a smile to my face.She Bit Me,Everything That Glitters,Thought I Was A Donut,Girlie Had A Mustach, and not to mention Tyson. Funniest Rap Album ever.

    2-Homebase

    3-He's the DJ

    4-Rock the House

    5-Code Red

  13. I found it. It is in the song "We As Americans" he says "Rapper slash actor kiss the crack of my crack slash ass". Like I said though it wasnt named at Will personally and the words around it dosent give any indacation that he was trying to diss Will. Just when I heard it I thought it was directed towards Will.

    Anyway, I dont believe that any rapper should take it personally when others take shots at them. Its been going on for years UTFO v Roxanne, Kool Moe D v LL, NWA v Easy E, West Coast v East Coast, now Em v Will. I'm not shocked or surprised by anything said and if you think about it this is the mildest war I've ever heard of.

    The fact remains regardless of what they think of one another they are both talented. Will has a body of work that cant be denied and Em is building an Empire(excuse the pun) Gangster rap isnt going anywhere because Rap is based in the streets and most of the hardcore rappers have used this medium to get out of it. IE Pac and Biggie. You can take the man out of the streets but you cant take the streets out of the man. Will needs to start his own label and bring up the positive rappers. My first love will always be Will but Rakim is the best lyricist but Em is at least in the top 6 all time due to his original ideas. He isnt bring the same old crap thats been done a million times and at least he can flow unlike alot of the rappers these days. :sorry:
