I remember the first time I heard this song, me and my friends had kept skipping it to listen to the songs we knew. And when it finally got to this, it was already night and I was scared to walk home after listening to it.
The first season of Fresh Prince is grounded on `80s culture. It wasn't till `91 or `92 that the decade created its own identity. When you look at stuff from 1990 you still see `88 and `89 influences. Just look at the cloths Will Smith is wearing during the first season of Fresh Prince. Its so...`80s.
