While Will “Fresh Prince” Smith has went off to become one of Hollywood’s biggest superstars, DJ Jazzy Jeff of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince fame has continued to… be a DJ.
So it makes sense that Activision would tap DJ Jazzy Jeff to not only appear in the upcoming DJ Hero, but to create exclusive mixes for the game. “Tears for Fears ‘Shout’ vs. Eric B & Rakim ‘Eric B. Is President'” and “LL Cool J ‘Rock the Bells’ vs. The Aranbee Pop Symphony Orchestra ‘Bittersweet Symphony'” will appear in the game alongside the DJ’s in-game character.
DJ Jazzy Jeff joins the long list of in-game DJ celebrities for DJ Hero, including DJ Shadow, DJ Z-Trip, Grand Master Flash, and DJ AM. Shouldn’t they be saving some of the guys for the inevitable sequels?
