Flip Fridays: Summertime:DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince aka Will Smith

Clearly to me this is the official summer chune of all time. Summertime featuring Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince off thier fourth album in 1991 "Homebase". The album that year went double platinum, reached #5 Top R&B/Hip Hop albums, won an American Music Award for Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Album, and it also reached #12 in the mainstream U.S. music charts. During that time it was very rare that Rap/Hip Hop was being accpeted in the Top 40 commercial radio play. I can actually say if it wasn't for Will Smit I think alot rap/hip hop artists would be still crying to be known. But either the less this chune will always be a classic.

Also I just wanna say that Jazzy Jeff was a genius when he found this sample oh and try to remember who just used this sample in thier latest album too.

Get @ Me Screwface citizens!!!
