fabman Posted December 18, 2005 Report Share Posted December 18, 2005 I think that the deal is still there. 1st) It's only a distribution deal. So, Will paid the "making" of the album himself with Overbrook 2nd) Lost and Found did sell well. Ok, it didn't go platinum in the USA or it didn't sell like *sucking* 50's Massacre, but 600.000 copies were sold in the USA and the album went platinum worldwide. I mean, if the album costs like 20$, Interscope / Universal made like 20 milion dollars. That ain't bad. So I think that there is still a contract. BUT would Interscope risk and sell a new record by him as DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince!? I mean a lot of people know him only as Will Smith now and a lot of people know Jeff only from the series and not as a DJ. Yes, they had big hits in the 80's and 90's but unfortunately things have changed. I think that it could (have) be(en) possible that Jive Records would (have) sign(ed) them... but Jive Records is now part of SonyBmg and Sony fired Will three years ago, so... I dunno. Jive could be possible, but I don't know how Sony interacts with that label... know what I mean? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
