Black History Facts: DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince vs. The Grammy’s ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know, WillSmith, otherwise known as The FreshPrince, and DJJazzyJeff were the first to win a Grammy for Best Rap Performance? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, the presentation of the award didn't come without incident. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It all started back to 1989 at the 31st Annual Grammy Awards, when the Recording Academy introduced the Best Rap Performance category. That year, the nominees included DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince for “Parents Just Don’t Understand,” J.J. Fad for “Supersonic”, Kool Moe Dee for “Wild Wild West,” LLCoolJ for “Going Back to Cali,” and SaltnPepa for “Push It.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, after learning the presentation of the award would not be televised, Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince led a boycott to protest the award show. Joining them, were several of the award nominees, including LL Cool J and Salt-n-Pepa, who released a statement saying, “If they don’t want us, we don’t want them.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At the time, the rap duo sat with Entertainment Tonight to discuss their decision to boycott, saying they wanted to stand up for their genre. “We don’t have the problem with the Grammy as an award or the Grammys as an institution, we just had a problem with the 1989 design of the awards show,” Smith said in a 1989 interview. “We chose to boycott. We feel that it’s a slap in the face.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “They said there wasn’t enough time to televise all of the categories,” Jazzy Jeff added. “They televised 16 categories and, from record sales, from Billboard charts, from the overall public’s view, there’s no way you can tell me that out of the 16 categories that rap isn’t in the top 16.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ultimately, the award was presented to DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince. In addition, the category was televised at the 32nd Annual Grammy Award Show.: BA Black History Facts: DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince Black History Facts: DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince vs. The Grammy’s ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know, WillSmith, otherwise known as The FreshPrince, and DJJazzyJeff were the first to win a Grammy for Best Rap Performance? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, the presentation of the award didn't come without incident. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It all started back to 1989 at the 31st Annual Grammy Awards, when the Recording Academy introduced the Best Rap Performance category.
