D J Jazzy Jeff is probably best known for his work as a sidekick to Will Smith as The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air. He is now set to release his latest mix-tape ‘I’m the DJ, He’s the King’, which he has dedicated to Michael. ‘I’m the DJ, He’s the King’ features forty-nine tracks, including some lesser-known songs, which he searched for after Michael died. Jazzy Jeff said of the release; “I wanted to keep it one CD and not make it a Mike anthology. I wanted to just make it something that was entertaining, that you could just play from the beginning to end.”
The set features a range of Michael’s music, from classics like ‘Human Nature’ and ‘Billie Jean’ to not so familiar remixes, including a Pete Rock take on the Jackson 5’s ‘2-4-6-8’, featuring CL Smooth, and mix of ‘Rock With You’, featuring Fela Kuti.
The mix-tape is sponsored by Undcrwrn apparel and will be available for free download on their site starting Monday, October 26th. The mix-tape cover, featuring an illustrated take on Jeff and Smith’s album ‘He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper’, is also printed on a T-shirt from Udrcrwn which retails for $32.00.
