“Brand New Funk”

Filed under: Flashback — Felicia @ 9:10 am

Artist: DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince

Album: He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper (1988)

Label: Jive He's the DJ, I'm the Rapper

So i’m not even gonna front like I remember when this record first dropped. I was barely out of diapers at this point (ok well, I was a few years older than post-diaper age, but who’s counting years)? The first time I recall hearing this was in the mid-90’s in high school. After being a fan of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, I thought it was pretty cool that cousin Will started his career as a rapper; and with his BFF Jazz of all people. I’m a sucker for a nice beat with an equally matching hook, so this record definitely reeled me in. I was soooo happy that there was actually a video. Check it out:
