Earlier this year, Eric B. told Combat Jack how elements of “Summertime” were intended to be an Eric B. & Rakim record. In his interview, the Eric B. claimed he produced the version that his group would ultimately pass on.
This week kicks off the official beginning of summer season. In the Hip-Hop, no song is more synonymous with the season than DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s 1991 platinum single, “Summertime.” 25 years later, Jazzy Jeff resurrects one of his biggest hits.
