It's coming in April. I've known about this for awhile, but didn't want to post about it until there were more details. Well, details aren't emerging yet, so I decided to share it anyway. On April 14th, a new JJ+FP compilation is coming. For those of you who aren't familiar with Playlist, they basically put together greatest hits and "best of" compilations, often using the term "the hits and fan favorites." They are often priced very reasonably and can be found in FYE, Best Buy, and Walmart. They vary when it comes to how interesting they are. They used to only be sold in cardboard cases, but in recent years they've moved on to traditional plastic CD cases and include proper inserts that include pictures, write-ups, and credits. Sometimes the pictures are kind of rare. The music is what it's mostly about. Some of the trackinglistings like the Destiny's Child one is nothing but the hits. It's nice to have them compiled together, but it's a little useless since they already have a greatest hits album, plus most of their albums are easy to find and priced well. Then you have albums like they've done for R. Kelly, Common Sense, and the Fugees, which contain rare b-sides and remixes...some never before released on CD. I guess we have to wait to see the artwork and the tracklisting, but hopefully they'll be quite a few surprises on it. It'll be nice buying a new JJ+FP album and seeing one on the shelves. Here's it's listing on Amazon... http://www.amazon.com/Playlist-Very-Best-Jazzy-Fresh/dp/B00QTVK892/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422670915&sr=8-1&keywords=jazzy+jeff+fresh+prince
Check out this video with Snoop Dogg and Shawn Stockman (of Boyz II Men) giving JJ+FP crazy props and talking about their impact during the 80's. They talk about them early in the video, but the whole thing is actually very interesting and funny.
