THIS IS A STORY ALL ABOUT HOW THEIR LIVES GOT FLIPPED, TURNED UPSIDE DOWN: Twenty-five years ago today, West Philadelphia born-and-raised Will Smith and Jeff Townes released their second album, He's the DJ, I'm the Rapper, and Jazzy Jeff's oral history of that ride to the stratosphere is worth your read. Includes his memories of being criticized for bringing hip-hop to the suburbs ("I felt like people started to think we were trying to take something else from them without realizing that all this is was a recognition that we’re doing something good,") and the whole Grammys controversy.
