You know what? I’m not entirely sure where this version of DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince’s “Too Damn Hype” came from. I’m thinking it came from a record, but I’m not sure which one. I know the original version of “Too Damn Hype”–some crap I didn’t even know existed until I went looking for a digital copy of this version I’m posting–is on Jeff and Will’s CD “And In This Corner…” And I do have that cassette (um, somewhere…), but I guess I never really listened to it much because I had no idea this version I’m posting was not the CD version (don’t even know if it’s the cassette version). The only album of Jeff and Will’s music that I liked was “He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper.” And I believe what happened was one of my sisters recorded a cassette copy of that album from a boyfriend’s record, and that boyfriend had this version of “Too Damn Hype” that made it onto the cassette (maybe it was a hidden track on the record?). So, this posting is actually “ripped” from the cassette copy that I have.
If anybody knows anything about this version, I’d love to know more.
