Fresh Prince To Will Smith And Back

I was born in the early 80’s and I’ve seen hip hop evolve into a much more complex entity than the original intent of its forefathers. There was a time when hip hop could mean anything from Doug E. Fresh to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Somewhere along the way that spectrum became a segregated portion of the genre that most refer to as ‘old school’. Contemporary hip hop is more like everything from Ke$ha to Chief Keef, yuck. If I had millions of dollars and was turning 40 I’d probably hire The Roots or Wu to lace my party soundtrack, Gabby and her crew are a little older, hence their respectable selections. In all seriousness though, Will Smith does lay down some bars no?
