Billboard, Facts, and Fresh: BA Black History Facts: DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince Black History Facts: DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince vs. The Grammyโ€™s โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Did you know, WillSmith, otherwise known as The FreshPrince, and DJJazzyJeff were the first to win a Grammy for Best Rap Performance? โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € However, the presentation of the award didn't come without incident. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 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 โ€œParents Just Donโ€™t Understand,โ€ J.J. Fad for โ€œSupersonicโ€, Kool Moe Dee for โ€œWild Wild West,โ€ LLCoolJ for โ€œGoing Back to Cali,โ€ and SaltnPepa for โ€œPush It.โ€ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 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, โ€œIf they donโ€™t want us, we donโ€™t want them.โ€ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 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. โ€œWe donโ€™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,โ€ Smith said in a 1989 interview. โ€œWe chose to boycott. We feel that itโ€™s a slap in the face.โ€ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ€œThey said there wasnโ€™t enough time to televise all of the categories,โ€ Jazzy Jeff added. โ€œThey televised 16 categories and, from record sales, from Billboard charts, from the overall publicโ€™s view, thereโ€™s no way you can tell me that out of the 16 categories that rap isnโ€™t in the top 16.โ€ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 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.
