Welcome back to the ’90s (1989, but close enough). Watching vintage video is always a plus, because we get to laugh at the slang from those days, and question the funny wardrobe they wore at the time or hairstyles that were popular back then.
In this flashback, Tim Westwood releases a video from 1989, featuring a young Will Smith who took the time to explain how he linked up wtih DJ Jazzy Jeff back in Philadelphia. At the time, DJ Jazzy Jeff was the most popping DJ in Philly and would spin at legendary parties out there. Tim then asks the Fresh Prince to spit a freestyle off the top of the cap and in proper rapper fashion, he proceeded to do so.
That is until the outtakes, when we find out it was all a camera trick.
