4.0 out of 5 stars Stop the myths! September 26, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Okay, Will Smith and Jazzy Jeff did not offer the most stunning, revolutionary music in the hiphop world back in its heyday, but you need to realize that they were not sellouts and definitely not the worst of this genre. Yes, their style was almost too kid friendly and kind of hard to listen to repeatedly compared to other gems of the day. However, they did what they know, and created some pretty noteworthy pieces along the way.

Selling out would have been if Will were to incorporate superficious gangsta, thug, or pimp elements into his music. He didn't. His style may have been silly, onery, and kid friendly, but that is who he is, and he never stepped outside of that. The myth is that he never used cuss words, but you go back and listen to "You Saw My Blinker..." and realize that he did every now and then, and find that hard to believe. Plus he always dropped a lot of hell's and damn's- in case that offends anyone. Will kept it true, to what he knows, and yet still has a bad rap for his music.

I won't go as far to say that his work with Jazzy Jeff is something I absolutely cherish and revere, but one should recognize that they made big contributions to hiphop and stood strong as an example of hiphop's diversity. People could get into their stuff if they found the rest of hiphop hard-to-stomach. I love the show "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"(in which they both starred), which not only exceeded and outlasted expectations, but became a classic and brought hiphop and urban culture to the forefront on American television. It's still shown on TV constantly today, eight years after the last episode. The show had something for everyone, like I said, an enduring American classic.

So the rumor is that Jazzy Jeff and Will were sellouts and their music is wack. MYTH!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best CD I have May 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the first Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince record I ever got, about five years ago. And this is also the one I listen to the most because it's their best. Plain and simple.
From hearing the first track, A Nightmare on My Street, you're immediately taken back to the days when rap was fun to listen to. Now it's all about the hardcore stuff which totally disinterests me. This album is completely 80's.
This disc houses some of their greatest tracks they've ever recorded. Parents Just Don't Understand, Brand New Funk, A Nightmare on My Street, Here We Go Again, and the list goes on and on for all seventeen tracks.
Here are the top five songs on the disc
1.A Nightmare on My Street
2.Here We Go Again
3.Brand New Funk
4.He's the DJ, I'm the Rapper
5.Parents Just Don't Understand
This album is completely worth buying no matter what kind of music you listen to. This is the best CD I have in my not so extensive CD collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it's edited, but there's a reason... June 30, 2010
By Aaron K
Format:Audio CD
"He's the DJ, I'm the Rapper" was the very first rap album I ever bought as a kid. It's an absolute classic, loaded with outstanding tracks! If you don't believe me, check the [...] review (5 stars), or see the Source's list of 100 Best Rap Albums of all time (it's on there).

Not much needs to be said about how good the songs are, but there are other reviews giving it low ratings, because, yes, the CD is edited.

It's a similar case to another classic hip-hop album, "Sex Packets" by Digital Underground. "He's The DJ..." is a double LP and extended play cassette. But when it came time to release the CD, they couldn't fit it all on one CD. Hence, sadly, the decision was made to cut some of the songs to allow it to fit. Here's the difference:

"Nightmare on My Street" - This is the Single Version that was released on 7" vinyl and cassette single. It has alternate lyrics compared to the LP version and is not simply edited.

"As We Go" - shortened by about 30 seconds

"Parents Just Don't Understand" - This is the Single Version that was released on 7" vinyl and cassette single. It shortens the instrumental section between the 2nd and 3rd verse and fades a little earlier than the LP.

"Another Special Announcement" - This is the only song missing from the CD.

"D.J. on the Wheels" - shortened by about 50 seconds

"He's the D.J., I'm the Rapper" - shortened by about 1:15

"Hip Hop Dancer's Theme" - shortened by about 50 seconds

"Jazzy's in the House" - shortened by about 1:10

"Human Video Game" - shortened by about 1:30

All of the other songs are fully in tact. If you're used to hearing the LP or cassette, I completely understand your disappointment; however, the album is still very worthy of 5-stars even edited.

5.0 out of 5 stars My FAVORITE Hip Hop Album of All Time!!!!!!!!!! July 7, 2006
By Bart
Format:Audio CD
This album is the definition for true hip hop. Every single track on this record off the hook no doubt. I have listened to this album hundreds of times and it always sounds fresh. Many people haven't give JJFP a listen before (besides summertime or Parents Just Don't Understand) because they think they are soft. Those people don't know what they are missing.

Highlight tracks are Brand New Funk and Hes The DJ, I'm The Rapper. Jazzy Jeff produced some of the best beats ever for this album IMO. If you love old school, this album is for you. Don't sleep on this album.

Classic Fresh Prince.... Grew up with this album. Good wholesome clean rap. If you're this far, you probably know the music. I'd buy it in a heartbeat for a gift.
