It could be argued that hip-hop nation’s success in American popular culture can be traced to media events in the early to mid-1990s, especially as regards arch shit on teevee like “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,”—a show that mythologized the life and work of a rapper named Will Smith and some of his friends too. DJ Jazzy Jeff, a formidable Philly producer and turntableist had a part on the show, using his screen time to bring hip-hop aesthetics to the white middle-class masses. After the series ended, Jeffrey Allen Townes, as the dude is really known, went on to be a notable R&B producer. He’s back in action as a performer this year, touring on the strength of work that includes memorable collaborations with CL Smooth and Method Man. Catch this legendary DJ’s latest set at The Stage at Santa Ana Star Casino (54 Jemez Dam Rd, Bernalillo, N.M.) on Saturday, Oct. 7. Dude may not be able to rock “Parent’s Just Don’t Understand” anymore but that shouldn’t stop him from rapping “Brand New Funk” (I hope). $20 to $25 • 9pm • 21+.
