Phil­adelphia pro­du­cer Carl Madis­on pays trib­ute to West Philly’s own Hip-Hop legend Will Smith. “I’m da Pro­du­cer, He’s da Rap­per” fuses Will’s clas­sic flow and Madis­on’s raw and gritty approach, thus giv­ing us a new inter­pret­a­tion of the Fresh Prince that the fans will appre­ci­ate and love.

What bet­ter way to say Happy “50th” Birth­day to the Fresh Prince, than by drop­ping a tribute/remix pro­ject on Will Smith’s birth­day by Philly’s own Carl Madis­on.


Carl Madis­on’s “I’m Da Pro­du­cer, He’s Da Rap­per”

The nine track pro­ject with scratches by DJ Side­walk, elev­ates the essence of tra­di­tion­al Hip-Hop. Madis­on clev­erly fuses soul, funk, and sounds of keys and bass to cel­eb­rate a clas­sic album and an icon­ic artist.  The rendi­tion of “Par­ents Just Don’t Under­stand, “Sum­mer­time” and “Get­tin’ Funky Wit It” will have listen­ers remin­is­cent of house parties and boom-boxes vibrat­ing on the b‑ball courts.  While “Switch” will awaken the soul and lead listen­ers to the club banging out house music. Madis­on also inserts comed­ic skits from a few of Smith’s most pop­u­lar films as well as inter­ludes from Smith ser­mon­iz­ing about work eth­ic and excel­ling the craft of artistry.
