Philadelphia producer Carl Madison pays tribute to West Philly’s own Hip-Hop Icon Will Smith. “I’m da Producer, He’s da Rapper” fuses Will’s classic flow and Madison’s raw and gritty approach, thus giving us a new interpretation of the Fresh Prince that the fans will appreciate and love.
The nine-track project with scratches by DJ Sidewalk, elevates the essence of traditional Hip-Hop. Madison cleverly fuses soul, funk, and sounds of keys and bass to celebrate a classic album and an iconic artist. The rendition of “Parents Just Don’t Understand, “Summertime” and “Gettin’ Funky Wit It” will have listeners reminiscent of house parties and boom-boxes vibrating on the b-ball courts. While “Switch” will awaken the soul and lead listeners to the club banging out house music. Madison also inserts comedic skits from a few of Smith’s most popular films as well as interludes from Smith sermonizing about work ethic and excelling the craft of artistry.
