Rappers Choose Their Favorite Fresh Prince Episode
Not Invited: Uncle Phil
Today's Prompt: Earlier today, "Fresh Prince" was trending on Twitter. Naturally, we reached over to a bunch of Houston rappers to see which episode of the early-'90s sitcom was their favorite. Aces.
Delo: [When] Will gave* Carlton speed for prom. Will showed his acting skills, crying at the end. And when Will hooped in high school against Allen Payne.
*Will received speed from another student at school. He didn't take them, but was holding them in his locker. Carlton took them because he thought they were Vitamin C pills. Oh, Carlton...
Chane: I don't really have a favorite episode. I loved them all. I always got a kick outta Jazzy getting thrown out. [laughs]. Will Smith is from Philly, like myself, so it was incredible to have someone from home be the first rapper with a sitcom.
Mr. Wired Up (Oh Boy): The episode where he went back to Philly, 'cause the hood changed but he didn't realize it 'til the end.
Mac: I liked that show as a whole. It was the hip-hop version of The Cosbys.
Brad Gilmore: My favorite memory is when they replaced Aunt Viv and we all pretended like we didn't notice.
A.D.D.: My favorite episode was the one when Will's dad came back and left again and Will said, "Why he don't love me no more, man?" That episode was touching.
