CD Album

Topping the charts throughout the '80s and '90s with such hits as "Parents Just Don't Understand," "A Nightmare On My Street," and the anthemic "Summertime," Jeff Townes (aka, D.J. Jazzy Jeff) and Will Smith (aka, The Fresh Prince) brought rap music to pop audiences worldwide. Formed in 1986 in Philadelphia while performing at a house party, D.J. Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince served as the launching pad for two major music careers. Renowned for his turntable skills as spotlighted on tracks such as "The Magnificent Jazzy Jeff" and "Brand New Funk," D.J. Jazzy Jeff is internationally acknowledged as a significant figure in the art of turntablism. Today, he plays a major role in nurturing the Neo-Soul movement coming out of Philadelphia. The rapper of the group, Will Smith, needs little introduction as he rose throughout the '80s and '90s to become one of America's biggest stars of film, music and television. Together, as D.J. Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, they created some of the most memorable hits of their day and, individually, continue to woo fans worldwide.

If there's only 14 tracks on there with no unreleased, I probably won't get it right away...

i like the cover. i'll probably get this with or without bonus tracks just for the remasteted stuff. Lets just keep hoping for those new tracks, its the 20th anniversary they have to do something! Come to think of it June will be exactly when thier first single was released, its a sign!

Speaking of remastering, I hope the JJFP albums get remastered one day, that's what I'm really looking forward to, I'm not getting this right away if there's no new/unreleased tracks but it's still a good timing to release this since there's probably a lot of kids that got introduced to FP as an mc with "Lost and Found" and this album would be a good album to help give them a history lesson of his career with Jazzy...
