'90s Hip-Hop Jam of the Week: DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, "Summertime"



This DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince song sounds the best each year during the first warm week of spring. Like right here, right now in St. Louis, where everybody seems to have come alive with happiness and energy. A chart hit in 1991, the still-popular tune samples Kool & the Gang's "Summer Madness" and can be found on the pair's fourth album, Homebase.
