  9. Linkin_Giady on September 7, 2008 at 2:30 am

    Hey Mike! You know, even here in Italy this sitcom was transmitted until a few years ago … and it was called “Il Principe di Bel Air” … I always watched this program!
    However, the sites are beginning to turn the first items on the new album (they say that it must come out during the period March-April 2009, right ?)… what do you think to keep us informed a little about the situation?
    Much respect Mike!

  10. durg on September 6, 2008 at 4:59 pm

    miiiike i gotta question. :p
    my friend has to dress up as an artist for her art class XD, & she wants to be you, haha
    & she told me to comment & ask for ‘suggestions’ on how to be you. XD

  11. lucky_cat on September 6, 2008 at 2:12 pm

    He SOYUNEIK: Hahaha … take it !!! go go go πŸ˜€ you would never know it, if you turn back. chase away all the monsters in your head … pffff lol… you know ?! good luck, iΒ΄m curious about it !

  12. analoggirl on September 6, 2008 at 9:11 am

    To echo what NorthernTowns said, thanks for sharing this video. Shad’s an up-and-coming artist from Toronto and I’m looking forward to seeing him rip the stage at the Virgin Festival. πŸ™‚

  13. Shinizzle3 on September 6, 2008 at 7:15 am

    hey, mike, or anybody else…on this site: you can download most of the LP songs, i just wanted to ask, whether that’s legal or not, before i download something…because it seems like they are all 4 free…=/

  14. Shinizzle3 on September 6, 2008 at 5:30 am

    mikey i hope u’ll win at the emas =)

  15. soyuneik on September 5, 2008 at 8:42 pm

    Aww LUCKY_CAT Thank You!…..
    Some sort of crazy doors opened up for me recently. I don’t wanna jinx it, but there kinda shiny inside. Should I step in?
    Am I ready? Probably not. lol. But I’m starving. Try peeking in and you can feel the pressure of the air weighing down on you.
    But I sure as hell don’t want go back. How many female Hip-hop producers can you name? Even unsigned I can only name a handful. Its sorta like taking on the world. hahaha PERFECT!

  16. shan1105 on September 5, 2008 at 6:05 pm

    Hey all you LP and MS fans go to wemix and check out the site. it is pretty coll and while you there check out and vote so he can win a chance to hang with mike!

    – Well, I like Will Smith, he’s a great actor, and he was in “YO! MTV RAPS” how come you weren’t there?! I mean, that was the show who gave hip hop a face!..

  30. soyuneik on September 4, 2008 at 11:37 pm

    Haha, I like that. My backs killing me from leaning over my Mp for the last 12 hours. That’s including my 5 coffee breaks, lunch, Naruto chapter 415 and catching up on 2 chapters of Hajime No Ippo. Ironically they had a Shinoda pun at the bottom of one the pages. I’d post it but its huge. Its a boxing manga, one of the trainers is named (well last name-yea u know) Shinoda. I think its funny that I have whole conversations with myself on your blog. lol I guess I’m kinda hoping you get at least some amusement out of my rants. If not, well, at least It adds to your comment count. πŸ˜›

  31. miKer0cks on September 4, 2008 at 11:30 pm

    well….that show is not broacasting in greece soo i cant watch it but it seems cool!!! thx for sharing mikey!!!<3

  32. northerntowns on September 4, 2008 at 7:48 pm

    good job showing your respect to a great canadian artist.

    much love.

  33. asianotter on September 4, 2008 at 4:19 pm

    cute! thanks for sharing!

  34. 2T_LP on September 4, 2008 at 4:18 pm

    hmmmmmm i dont have a clue about that show guyz…we dont see that show in egypt :D:D but i like the theme song and from the comments i read….i can see this is a gr8 show!! D:D

  35. Curiosa on September 4, 2008 at 3:14 pm

    My nieces & nephews love watching The Fresh Prince on Nickelodeon. My 8 yr old niece can even recite the whole song. lol Will Smith is a superstar in his own right. Not only is he a great actor (loved him in MIB & Pursuit of Happiness) & rapper but it seems as though he still has the morals he grew up with. I have much respect for him in that. Plus I think that the older he & LL Cool J get, the cuter they are. πŸ˜‰ Mike, ur hair looks nice today & I love that shirt. πŸ™‚

  36. lucky_cat on September 4, 2008 at 2:11 pm

    How I wish my english would be better as it is right now !!! he (shad) is to fast for me … no lyrics on his myspace. i have no choice, have to listen again and again … but itΒ΄s cool … good lesson for me. Thanks, Mike !

  37. Kira on September 4, 2008 at 1:23 pm

    The Fresh Prince may be my favorite show of all time. It’s a toss-up between it and The Cosby Show. I just wanted to show some love to the forgotten verse.

  38. rockermeg on September 4, 2008 at 1:23 pm

    Yay,Fresh Prince!!!! πŸ˜€

    Sooo dope,i love that show.

    Will Smith is awesome!!! I still need to see Hancock


  39. Kira on September 4, 2008 at 1:22 pm

    I begged and pleaded with her day after day /
    But she packed my suitcase and sent me on my way /
    She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket /
    I put my Walkman on and said, “I might as well kick it!” /
    First class, yo, this is bad /
    Drinkin’ orange juice out of a champagne glass /
    Is this what the people of Bel-Air are livin’ like? /
    Hmmm, this might be all right /
    But wait, I hear they’re prissy /
    Bourgeois and all that /
    Is this the type of place they should send this cool cat? /
    I don’t think so; I’ll see when I get there /
    I hope they’re prepared for the Prince of Bel-Air /

  40. Kira on September 4, 2008 at 1:22 pm

    The plane landed and when I came out /
    There was a dude looked like a cop standing there with my name out /
    I ain’t try’na get arrested yet; I just got here /
    I sprang with the quickness /
    Like lightening, disappeared /

  41. shan1105 on September 4, 2008 at 1:21 pm

    Hey mike check out htis you tube video i found, it is like a collaboration of all things LP. kinda cool someone took the time to put it together. either that or psycho fan ( ha ha) and someone tell me what chester is doing to that chair at the 2:30 mark

  42. Anne on September 4, 2008 at 1:11 pm

    back here in germany they called it “the prince of bel air” and i loved to watch that show :o) they’re still playing it on a third-class-channel but now it’s not funny any more… shame…

  43. Gemilla on September 4, 2008 at 12:59 pm

    I love it! Fresh Prince 4 life!! haha

  44. skindesbous on September 4, 2008 at 11:42 am

    HAHAHAHA I love when Will starts singing this song on the live shows… maybe they should do a colaboration, hehe

  45. sterilepoon on September 4, 2008 at 11:16 am

    lmao i loved the episode of fresh prince where will says something about “the dude who was spinnin me over his head in the opening credits”


  46. ritzifying on September 4, 2008 at 10:42 am

    i did love me some fresh prince back in the day. it’s on at 2 a.m. here and i’ll still watch it a couple of times through the week.
    going to listen to the theme song again… haha

  47. pajasevi on September 4, 2008 at 10:23 am

    Hey, Fresh Prince was awesome, I loved it as a little kid. I love Will Smith, great actor. Btw your artbook is so awesome Mike:-) (except photo of your dirty foot) πŸ˜€

  48. Sharp_Swimmer on September 4, 2008 at 9:58 am

    One can never escape Fresh Prince, it seems…
    By the way, as you’ve been encouraging people to really make themselves heard to get what they want: Come back to Sweden, Linkin Park! The Hultsfred incident in June is still an open wound. Make it heal! Γ³.Γ²

  49. I_B_Long on September 4, 2008 at 9:47 am

    that was funny as hell. i actually thought he sounded better without the music. i actually knew all the words to the original before i even understood a single word of english. but after seeing the show in the US, i gotta say, the german voice-overs dont do it justice.
    great post!

  50. ButterflyVampire on September 4, 2008 at 9:26 am

    I still watch that show! πŸ˜€

  51. psykobouliz on September 4, 2008 at 9:19 am

    hahaha that was fun!! =D

    btw i love Will Smith!

  52. yanTyan on September 4, 2008 at 8:49 am

    Cool man~
    Remind me of this

  53. Jaclyn on September 4, 2008 at 8:30 am

  54. Sammy on September 4, 2008 at 7:31 am
