"Big Ted's JJFP Anthem"


Recommended Posts

Hey y'all here's a song I've been anticipating on typing up for y'all, peep this:

“Big Ted's JJFP Anthem” (JJFP 1985-2005 and beyond)

Hook(Big Ted Chantin'):

Even when I get signed

JJFP will still be the greatest of all time

Nothing will ever change my mind

'Cause if it wasn't for them my hip-hop knowledge would be blind

Unique individuals continually shine

Black/white/rich/poor peeps all relate to their vibe

Their creativity represent the ways of life

Verse One:

Now in this year of 2005

Once again Jazzy Jeff's on the wheels and The Fresh Prince is on the mic

To burn all competitors since they're the top duo of all time

“Y'all know” what happens when Jeff's cuts back up The Prince's rhymes

It's a moment of monogomy like “Summertime”

But let's go back to year 1985

Which was the 1st year of my life

And the moment when these two forces combined

Then a year later in '86

The release of “Girls Ain't Nothin' But Trouble” would hit

The b-boy circles and block parties formed a moment of bliss

They'd rock the house as the freshest

Then in '88 they released a classic disc

“He's The DJ, I'm The Rapper”

They'd reign as hip-hop masters

Winnin' the 1st grammy in the music's history for “Parents Just Don't Understand”

So all those hip-hop non-believers were slammed

'Cause like FP said: “I told my mother I could never make a wack jam”

And the duo took even further command

When Quincy Jones offered them a plan

Of turnin' their hip-hop dominance into a TV show that was seen across the lands

Starting in '90, “The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air”

Took hip-hop to a place that nobody else could compare

Of sayin' they did 'cause this cross-over of hip-hop opened a lot of doors for hip-hop artists

Now the industry's a billion-dollar industry in the stock market

With mcs on the red carpet

[Repeat Hook]

Verse Two:

“And In This Corner” they vetoed fake crews like the supreme court

Cuttin' no slack in the music

There was haters talkin' foolish

Sayin' that their style was soft since other rappers started rhymin' about bustin' bullets

Too many started going on that gangsta tip talkin' stupid

So they'd set 'em straight on “Code Red”

Showin' those haters they never lost their street sense

Yet they still kept the music positive

A lil' “Somethin' Like Dis” would remind that they never forgot about their “Homebase”

Even though you'd see them on your TVs on Monday

And now it's actually shown everyday

But anyways we'd then see FP doin' blockbuster classic movies like “Bad Boys” and “Independance Day”

While Jazzy Jeff was on the low still rockin' crowds with turntable displays

It still wasn't the same feelin' until they decided to concentrate workin' on “Big Willie Style”

Which would be released in '97

That's when I started to get into their music

I only knew them from watchin' them on my TV set when I was 10

I didn't know that the Fresh Prince was a lyricist until I heard “Just Crusin'”

And a year later I was blown away when I heard the transformer scratches from Jazzy Jeff

When I bought their “Greatest Hits”

We've been “So Fresh” throughout this “Willenium”

[Repeat Hook]

Verse Three:

They worked together on 7 of the 8 Fresh Prince discs

Up to this point until "Lost And Found" anticipation, even though FP has been “Born To Reign”

The diehearts like myself that he wasn't gonna be supreme without Jeff's scratches

So now once again it's about to happen

Don't sleep on Jeff 'cause he got his “A Touch Of Jazz” label established

We're preparing for “The Return Of The Magnificent” turntable assassin

Just when everyone has thought Fresh Prince was gonna just stay acting

The critics will see the sustaining passion

Once again they'll be lost 'cause Philly's finest has found the interaction

To bring us more anthems

The critics will once again be sayin' “I Wish I Made That”

Who knows what the future holds for them

The White House might be the future home of Fresh Prince

And they'll be a party thrown by “The Magnificent” with fellow hip-hop heads in attendance

This might sound a bit of a stretch

Or a “shadow dream” for some

But who would've thought that 2 kids from West Philly

Would be having 2 decades of longevity

So anythin' that comes their way from this point on as “potnas”, they'll always stay “Numero Uno” on the scene

Their “Love For The Game” and fighting through “The Rain” is an inspiration for you and me

“Tell Me Why” you'd doubt their legacy

[Repeat Hook]

Well I've been so inspired so much to what JJFP have done together as a duo and individually, they could make a book behind the concepts in making the incredible songs they've done over the years. I wrote this song over the weekend in my anticipation of "Lost and Found" and needless to see it has met my expectations. Like FP says:

"Found could be you if you felt the message" :peace:

Well this rhyme has a special place in my heart 'cause it's about my main inspiration to do this that's in the hip-hop industry now since they rep their artistry, I'm just trying to keep the legacy alive too. :afro:
