CD Review-DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince

Olivia Ramirez

“Summertime” by DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince is my all time favorite summer single. It was released in 1991 on their Homebase album. I chose this single as my favorite because it is a classic. Although it was released almost 14 years ago, the song is still circulated through the airwaves, considered by most as the anthem of summer. The old school beat and the universal lyrics that link every generation keep listeners of all ages reminiscing about summers of the past, and maybe even generating new memories. To many, summer means a break from the days of school that seem to be never ending. It is a break from any form of work, stress and strain that come along with a school year. The chorus lyrics have become words to live by for my generation: “summer, summer, summertime, time to sit back and unwind.” Summer is here, it is time to embrace it wholeheartedly.
