Before Will Smith expanded into acting on large and small screens, he played rapper to Jazzy Jeff's scratcher in a series of semi-novelty radio and video smashes. A teenager empathizing with the peer group his records were aimed at, the Fresh Prince communicated ground-level dispatches on home life ("Parents Just Don't Understand"), would-be romance ("Girls Ain't Nothing But Trouble") and Walter Mitty-style flights of fancy ("I Think I Can Beat Mike Tyson"). Movie stardom led Smith to put the mic down until the recent Big Willie Style; the success of that disc makes this the right time to revisit his early work, which shares space here with the newer "Men in Black" and "Just Cruisin'." Is it jiggy? Yeah, pretty jiggy. --Rickey Wright

The best compilation of Fresh Prince I've ever heard. I only wish Wild Wild West had been on it.
A Must for any Fresh Prince Fan.

"I used to be a huge fan of Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince,so when I heard they had a greatest hits cd,I just had to have it. And I was actually surprised at how good it is. The cd has several hits including my favorites Girls Aint Nothin But Trouble, Men In Black, Summertime, I think I can beat Mike Tyson,and the only song that Will Smith( Fresh Prince),ever curses in-You saw My Blinker. One of the greatest collections of hits,put onto one album."

"I like will smith. But I don't think that his new albums are as good as his old ones. If u dont want 2 waste money on buying all his old Albums then just buy the summary with all the best bits!Just buy it"
