In West Philadelphia, Born and raised… Sure, Jazzy Jeff is known for being a star in Fresh Prince of Bell Air, but he also a hip hop pioneer!
He’s an ICON who has won three Grammy Awards, three American Music Awards, two NAACP Awards, two Soul Train Music Awards and an MTV Music Award. All this gave rise to his nickname “The Magnificent” Jazzy Jeff.
This Summer, Summer time, Jeff reunities with Fresh Prince co-star Will Smith after which we are hyped to welcome Jazzy to Halo on October 21st. If you lived through the 90s you are bound to be able to sing the words to “Boom! Shake the Room”, “Summertime” “Men in Black” and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song – “Yo Home to Bel-Air”
As a DJ, Jazzy Jeff is one of the most accomplished in the world, with turntable skills honed over decades and continues to turn out truly majestic albums including ‘The Return of the Magnificent.’
Jeff’s success as a producer pre-empted his brilliant insight as founder and CEO of A Touch of Jazz Inc, which was a full-scale, musical production facility. The studio had a hand in swathes of amazing musical projects including the theme to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air television show.
Nowadays Jazzy Jeff continues to represent with his solo projects, collaborations, mixtapes and live shows. His love of music shines through in everything he does, yet to this day he states he is in all this simply for the love of the game.
