Back in the day Jazzy Jeff and The fresh prince were dope and took the rap world by storm. By 1988 they released there 2ND and best album "He's the DJ, I'm the rapper which was a smash and featured the legendary "Live at union Square"
Now if you were a DJ, this was the best track on the album...basically it was a live set recorded at the legendary NYC venue Union square, where Jazzy Jeff was showing off his DJ skills cutting up Apache, and Dance to the drummers beat , and he KILLLLLED IT. Even listening to it now, it sounds crazy and Jazzy Jeff's skills are impeccable. This track alone influenced EVERY Hip hop DJ that you listen to now. When i was a kid at school i used to rewind this tape over and over and over again trying to work out exactly what he was doing and how he did it. Remember this was before the Internet, and satellite TV, so there was no video footage of what Jazzy Jeff was actually doing.
OK so the track "Live at union square" is only a few minutes long, but below is the full 20 minute set, which has even MORE cutting up by the god Jazzy Jeff. It was aired back in 88 on Mr magic s"Rap attack show" This is essential listening if your a DJ. Check out Jazzy Jeff DESTROYING IT!!!!!
LIVE AT UNION SQUARE FULL SET
What i respected about The Fresh Prince aka Will Smith, was that he was the 1st commerical rapper,with hits like "Girls of the world aint nothing but trouble" but would balance it out with tracks like below...
