Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince: He's The D.J., I'm The Rapper (Jive)

Push, Melody Maker, 21 May 1988

THE VAST majority of double albums are stuffed with excessive nonsense, material which a greater perspicacity would have assigned to personal libraries. He's The D.J., I'm The Rapper has its fair share of superfluity, with ideas, angles and attitudes duplicated, but at least the oddities, the private jibes and asides, the indulgent extras, ensure there is no danger of misinterpretation. This LP certainly paints a vivid picture of exactly what these new-generation Philly boys are all about.
