Could a remake of Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air be in the works with Chance the rapper at the main front?
Former cast member DJ Jazzy Jeff recently sat down with Hip Hop DX to talk about who he thinks would play a good Will Smith.
His response? Chance The Rapper due to his similarities in personality.
Jazzy comments on how Change exudes positivity saying that he is always doing something positive.
He also compared Chance to Will saying that he “seems to have a light-hearted demeanor.” But he didn’t stop there complementing the “Coloring Book” rapper.
“Chance is a trailblazer, and I think Will is definitely a trailblazer. There has never been an I cant.” Jazzy said.
That is very true of the work that Chance has done for his hometown of Chicago.
However, while that would be a great honor for Chance to play an iconic role, he doesn’t want to take it on.
“I’m not going to play the f*****g Fresh Prince,” Chance said. “I love the Fresh Prince. I love Will Smith. I have so much respect for him. I would never do that. But you know what, I would write on that joint.”
