Happy Memorial Day!!
And since it’s the “unofficial” start of summer, we’re making [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince[/lastfm]‘s “Summertime” our Throwback Video of the Day!!
In 1991, hip hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince released their fourth studio album, Homebase. It was another commercial smash for the West Philadelphia natives, selling a million copies and landing at No. 12 on the Billboard 200.
The Grammy Award-winning single “Summertime” spent a week at No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart and also reached the Top 5 on the Hot 100.
The music video featured [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Will Smith[/lastfm] and Jeff Townes being driven around town while sitting atop a car. This footage was interspersed with clips from a family reunion.
Where to next?
