You're a little pushy Jeff
(I wanna rock right now)

[Fresh Prince:]
You wanna rock, Jeff lets do it a little somethin like this
From the heart of West Philly, came my man named Jazz
With mucho pizzaz and a razzmatazz
He slice the wax, cut forward, cut back, right and exact
You know the man ain't at all wack
The magnificent movie astoundin
The crowd goin loco, kick drum poundin
People surroundin us checkin the concept
Cuttin up a storm that's why the crowd is all wet
Other DJ's standin around Jeff
Tryin not to give up props to the worlds best
Shakin his hands tryin to say that he can't flow
Cause Jeff is a horse though that they all turn to
A mellow kinda fellow but in the past he
Been known to get a attitude and get right nasty
Snatch the wax, it's a fact not a figment
To get real and rip wheels its downright ignant
And when he step off, toss the confetti
He burn more wheels that Mario Andretti
Jeff is there anythin left you wanna say to the crowd

[Break - Fresh Prince (DJ Jazzy Jeff)]
(I wanna rock right now) [said slow]
Well get down now
(I wanna rock right now) [scratched]
What, what, say what, what

Yo Jeff lets go back to the old set for a second
Yo Jeff (rock the beat)
Come on, and yo Jeff (rock the beat)
Come on, and yo Jeff (rock the beat)
(Yo Jeff)

[Fresh Prince: (DJ Jazzy Jeff)]
Yo he's movin the crowd like a cloud, you gotta get a loud
Cause Jeff wants to (rock right now)
Peep the boy get swift, he got the gift
To lift, with just turntables and (rock) with
After a battle and I watched Jeff win 'em
He stomped the comp, he got cuts like venom
Doper than dope, just cope the boys def, D J J-a-zzy Jeff
On stage gettin ill beside me
Hands quicker than the eyes can see, G
After he cut ya, notice smoke still lingers
He let loose like Zeus with fire from his fingers
You wanna (rock)
Then I'm a let you (rock right now)
Hey yo Jeff gets down cause, he's superior, others inferior
I rap a whole record to try to make it clear to you
You don't get it still, I ain't gettin ill
Jeff rip the wheels, show 'em the real deal

[Fresh Prince - talking (Jazzy Jeff - scratching)]
Huh, go
What huh
(rock) [repeats]
Hit it

[Outro - Fresh Prince - talking (scratching of "rock" continues)]
In the place to be, doin it old school style
DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince about to break out
Yo fellas lets go to the island, go to the island

Himmina, humani, see, himina, humini, see,
My DJ go by the name of Jazzy, little chest big tummy
Watch the man rip the wheels and a
It's almost if the things are real and a
He's the man you heard what I said
He got a little glasses and a big forehead, HAHA
Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince for 1993, HA
And we outta here

[Talking in background and scratching continues until fade]

    They might have been right at the very end of the commercially acceptable hip hop, but you cannot deny that Jeff and the Prince produced some amazing tracks that were hip hop at its finest. I just love the simplicity of this track, yet it's still funky as hell and pure entertainment.

    Worst rapper " lets not forget Will Smith was one of the most succefull rappers not just in the 90s but of all time, the dude only used profanity on mic ONCE , and even then it was bleepd out in the final version , what other rappers you know are STILL succesfull that dont swear or use profanity in their songs ? dont worry ... i'll wait

  29. DopeMusicPlaylists24/7

    That DJ intro was amazing


    Jazzy jeff the best DJ ...... todays socalled "dj's" cant do anything else but play pre recorded shit and stand behind the dj booth with their hands up , Jazzy jeff is STILL one of the sickest dj's to ever touch the tables, look up some of his more recent stuff !! the man's got the hot hands


    for instance theres a performance from Eminem , The roots and Jazzy jeff on turntables, called "Rock the bells' look it up its on youtube, its fucking amazing

  30. Kevin Harding Mark

    Prince and Jazzy are the best.

    also fuck black eyed peas for screwing up this timeless track


    no dude the original is Rob Base - It Takes Two


    No need to be smart ass....doesn´t mean we have to take anything away from this facty I´m old skool and I prefer this version ....however Rob Base´s was good too

    Eduardo Anunciação

  35. kendo512

    Can anyone tell me where the "I wanna rock right now" sample is from?

  38. Danimal300zx

    This is the single version. The original version is 6 minutes and 19 seconds long on the album.

  39. BR34NY

    The moment you realise the base line is sampled from smooth operator by BDK

    Hollis P Monroe

    which sampled "All Night Long" by The Mary Jane Girls...

  46. Digital Insan1ty

    fuck you racists for blocking dj jazzy jeff and the fresh prince here we go again  in my country

  47. theblackSystemjack



    +ExtremHDGaming So true. It's easy to ignore how much skill it takes to break the beat down as clean as he does. I'm just starting out as a hobby DJ and I've been trying to replicate this track, but I sound like trash in comparison.

    Kevin Harding Mark

    Yeah Jazzy has pure DJ skill.

  54. RGMUFC1

    Now this is what i call DJ and not now some asshole playing games on laptop and others jumping like bunch of idiots.


    those are two different types of DJing ... thats like me saying Sharks are what i call animals not gold fish that do nothing but swim in circles. 

    Colorado Man

    @Enzetsu Well They shouldn't be called DJs then. The gold fish is ok because he don't call himself a shark!


    jeff the greatest of all time , by a mile

    go look at his Peter Piper routine on youtube, the dude is a pioneer and a monster
