6) DJ Jazzy Jeff: Jazz
DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jeffery Allen Townes) played the role of Jazz. He was Will’s dimwitted best friend who lived in Compton. DJ Jazzy Jeff started his career as a school and block party DJ. He was a member of the duo, The Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff, along with Will Smith. They won two Grammy Awards for the singles, “Parents Just Don’t Understand” and “Summertime.” Fresh Prince had a recurring joke in which Jazz is literally thrown out of the house when he does something annoying or irritating. Uncle Phil usually throws him out but others have done it too. After the series ended, he continued to focus on his DJ and music career. He’s released several mix tapes and made appearances with Will Smith. He’s also become a very successful producer and created the production company, A Touch Of Jazz. He’s worked with Jill Scott, The Roots and Eminem.
