This is one of the best CD's I ever got!
ALEX BOTEL
Overall, if you like rap, but could do without all the cursing and swearing, or if you're a big fan of Will Smith, GET THIS ALBUM!
Devin DiMattia
And although his stance on non-profanity is commendable, it is marred by the albums obvious commercialism.

I'm not gonna beat around the bush - Willennium is a major improvement in every way over Big Willie Style. Beats, lyrics, and overall delivery - dang, I had no idea Will had this in him! Of course, there are tracks that cement Will's place on the jiggy throne. "Will 2K" is an example for starters (with K-Ci on the backing vocals) - this is the party anthem they'll be playing on December 31, 1999. Also, "Freakin' It" is bound to get that bum shakin'. Wanna dance a little more? Peep "Da Butta" (with Lil' Kim) and La Fiesta for more proof. Something else we all know Will for is his sense of humour. He has not lost it here at all. I mean, who else could refer to McGruff (not the rapper - that dog) while saying "taking a bite out of crime?" (La Fiesta) Or how about this laugh-fest from "Uuhhh": "Plan down pat like Sajak / Wheel of Fortune away / Price ain't right - I don't play! / Find yourself in Jeopardy? / The first clue - what is Will Smith / Hot to death - not you!" Or this joker from the same song: "Eclecticism is a virtue / It may not be a word but it's definitely a virtue." Okay, one more from Kel Spencer (guesting on Uuhhh): "Cats rockin' the same flows every day 'cause they lame / True players gotta change their uniforms after the game." Now for the stuff you are not expecting. You know the expression - "If you don't know your past, you don't know the future." Will, knowing this, put on some killer old-school jams as a reminder that he was around in the 80s - and they're convincing. One of my favourite tracks is "So Fresh" - it's an old-school jam with Jazzy Jeff on the tables, and Biz Markie and Slick Rick rocking the mic with Big Willie.Read more ›

How can you take Will "seriously" (oxymoron)... I mean, what do you expect from a megacelebrity married to Jada Pinkett? Remember, he didn't come outta nowhere, he's an ol' school rapper-turned-actor. (remember "Parents Just Don't Understand & "Summertime?). So you can fathom that he's gonna keep spitting out albums with swift rhymes, humorous content, & childish hooks/kiddy background vocals (to the people who percieve it as corny). So just accept it as a happy album that appeals to a general audience (hard pop- per se). This a party in a can to those who appreciate good music- the beats are tight, the flows are tight... even Jazz's scratching is tight. Great way to kick off the millenium with the (corny-titled, yet thumpin') anthem "Will2K." Hardcore hip-hop fans might drop this on the floor and stomp on it, but if they do happen to pick it up, at least they'll like the first & last tracks ("I'm Comin" & track "The Rain") before throwing it in garbage. Highlights include "I'm Comin'" (with a beat out the gate), "Will2K" (with K-Ci and a danceable rhythm), "Freakin' It," (a playful, retro number), "La Fiesta" (swift vocals and a latin beat), "So Fresh" (an ol' skool retreat), "Potnas" (a retro ode to stable friendship), & "The Rain" (an athem to being positive along with a intriguing beat). All of them are good, except some of them were cheesy like "Da Butta" & "No More" (that piano line is cool) because the hooks were hilarious. Kel Spencer was quite good on "Uhhh." All 'n all, a solid album that surpasses "Big Willie Style." Yes, the album's theme is corny (i.e. Willenium), but the fun factor overrules. Great job to the Artist Formerly Known as Fresh Prince.

Will Smith seems to get better at rap, and he is one of the only class act movie stars still around. If you don't like Will Smith, drop dead! I especialy like one line of Freakin' It
Hey all you rappers, do me a favor and write one verse without a curse.
None of these songs have abusive language, so parents will love that. Another part I like is that at the beggining of Wild Wild West, Will asks his son for advice on what to put next on the C-D. All in all, Will is back and no body, no matter how good is going to top him.

It appears from the other reviewers that they are too young to remember Will Smith before he was an actor. Back then in the dark ages (what '88?) he was just the Fresh Prince. And he was a welcome refreshment compared to Eazy-E, NWA and all the other stale rap focused on sex and dope. Eleven years later, Will Smith is still a breath of fresh air in a field crowded with foul mouth fools and idiotic rappers. His music is silly, and light. "Willennium" is a light hearted fun party album. A great road trip selection. "Freakin' It" makes your toes tap no matter what your mood. "Who am I" is a bit off compared to the other tracks, but still a worthy song. And while WWW the movie was a poor tribute to a great show, the song does do it justice. "The Rain" is an obligatory WS slow song, but still quite enjoyable. Overall, while everyone else tries to remake themselves or shoot for the shock value, Smith "keeps it real"

This is one of the best CD's I ever got! Along with Dr. Dre 2001. I like all the songs but "Will2K" has to be my favorite. "Pontas", "Freakin' it", and "Rain" are also slammin' songs. Bring this CD to a party and you will be dancin' all night long. This is a perfect mellenium party CD. Go out and buy it right now!
