Biography

DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince was a 1980s and 1990s rap duo. The vocalist of this duo, Will Smith, met Jeff Townes while trying to make a name for himself in West Philadelphia’s local party/rap scene. After joining forces, the team became local celebrities. Philadelphia-based Pop Art Records released their first single, Girls Ain’t Nothing but Trouble, in late 1985, a tale of misadventures with the opposite sex. The song sampled the theme of I Dream of Jeannie. Smith became known for lighthearted, storytelling raps and capable, through curse-free, 'battle' rhymes. Townes was known for his turntable acrobatics, and is credited by many as inventing a style of scratching called "transforming".

    Summer summer summertime
    Time to sit back and unwind
    Here it is the groove slightly transformed

    Just a little somethin' to break the monotony

    Yo back up now and give a brother room
    The fuse is lit and I'm about to go boom
    Mercy mercy mercy me
    My life is a cage but on stage I'm free
    Hyped up syched up ready for wil'in'

    You know parents are the same
    No matter time nor place
    They don't understand that us kids
    Are going to make some mistakes
