Hollywood Old School Rap

A few years ago I won an ebay bid for a 2009 Upper Deck Hollywood History Prominent Cuts "Material" card. I'm pretty sure I got this for under $10. The reason I wanted it so bad was that it contained a piece of Will Smith's jacket from the Movie "The Pursuit of Happyness" and a piece of the Eagles jersey Mark Wahlberg wore in the movie "Invincible".
I am a huge fan of The Fresh Prince and have been a fan of his since he and Jazzy Jeff dropped the "Rock The House" album in 1987. It's pretty cool to own a piece of memorabilia from a movie he was Oscar nominated for. I also have been a fan of Mark Wahlberg since he and the Funky Bunch dropped their debut album "Music For The People" in 1991. I owned both albums on cassette tape. So, it's no wonder I wanted to own this "Hollywood Old School Rap" Dual Materials card.
Back in the early 90s who would have thought that these 2 rappers would become some of the most sought after, highest grossing Hollywood stars of today? Let's take a trip back and listen to the sweet sounds of The Fresh Prince & Marky Mark!
Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch: Wildside
DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince: Brand New Funk


  1. That's awesome! I still smile when I hear "Parents Just Don't Understand" and "Nightmare on My Street."

    1. Both great songs! Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince really need to come out with a new album and tour the US.
