DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince - He's the DJ, I'm the Rapper [The Samples]



Released in '88, He's the DJ, I'm the Rapper was the first album to earn DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince a Grammy award (for "Parents Just Don't Understand"). In fact, this album was a landmark in hip hop history because it was the first album to contain a rap song to win this prestigious award. He's the DJ, I'm the Rapper is sometimes considered to be the Philly duo's greatest album. With great tracks (and samples) like these, you can't go wrong!

  3. Something strikes me about the track He's the Dj, I'm the rapper tho. I can only ID 3 of the 4 tracks that are used in the track. Nowhere on the net can I find what the beat is after Steve Miller Band's Jungle Love. It's not T-Connection or John Davis. Can someone help me/us out cos I really need to have that beat.

    Thanks!

  4. Thanks for the sample set on this one. Some great samples used in this album. The opening breakbeat from "He's the DJ, I'm the Rapper" seems to be missing though. Does anyone know where it's from?

    Thanks,
