DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince's "He's The DJ" (Expanded 2CD Reissue)
DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince's "He's The DJ" (Expanded 2CD Reissue)


"Originally released in April 1988 on Jive/Zomba, He’s the DJ, I’m The Rapper by D.J. Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince (that’s Will Smith for you youngsters out there) is often listed as one of the greatest hip-hop albums ever recorded, one of the first releases in the genre that “crossed over” into mainstream chart success (#4 on the Pop charts). But, hard as it is to believe, the original vinyl double-LP and cassette are the only places to hear the album in full. When He’s the DJ, I’m The Rapper originally came out as the first-ever hip-hop double album, it clocked in at just over 82 minutes. Rather than issue it as a 2-CD set, Jive shortened the album for CD release. In the U.S., one of the songs was removed from the album while eight others were presented in shorter versions.


To date, only rare 1988 German pressings of the CD contain the original, unedited LP versions of the songs, although even that version left off the last two tracks due to the same space issues. Ah, you know…labels just don’t understand. So now, on the eve of the record's 30th anniversary, it’s time to set the record straight. Real Gone Music’s new, 2-CD expanded version includes the COMPLETE He’s the DJ, I’m The Rapper album for the first time ever on CD, taken from the original master tapes. But that’s not good enough for us…we’ve also added 11 bonus tracks featuring 12” single mixes, extended remixes, etc. totaling 54 minutes—in fact, the four instrumental versions and the live version of “Brand New Funk” have never been on CD, either! Sean Brennan at Battery Studios in New York remasters, Aaron Kannowski supplies liner notes, and we’ve included original album and 12" artwork as well. One of the crucial albums in hip-hop’s move to the mainstream, finally done right!" - Real Gone Music
