      And that was a drunk Quincy you say. Wow.. I say stay ready so you never have to get ready. Don't put off today for tomorrow. Every minute counts. Quincy is a genius with an incredible eye and ear for talent. He is able to feel like energy as in other great people. Thank God for Quincy Jones.

                                        Now, this is a story all about how
                                        My life got flipped-turned upside down
                                        And I'd like to take a minute
                                        Just sit right there
                                        I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel Air
                                        In west Philadelphia born and raised
                                        On the playground was where I spent most of my days
                                        Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
                                        And all shootin some b-ball outside of the school
                                        When a couple of guys who were up to no good
                                        Started making trouble in my neighborhood
                                        I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
                                        She said 'You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air'
                                        I begged and pleaded with her day after day
                                        But she packed my suit case and sent me on my way
                                        She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket.
                                        I put my Walkman on and said, 'I might as well kick it'.
                                        First class, yo this is bad
                                        Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass.
                                        Is this what the people of Bel-Air living like?
                                        Hmm this might be alright.
                                        But wait I hear they're prissy, bourgeois, all that
                                        Is this the type of place that they just send this cool cat?
                                        I don't think so
                                        I'll see when I get there
                                        I hope they're prepared for the prince of Bel-Air
                                        Well, the plane landed and when I came out
                                        There was a dude who looked like a cop standing there with my name out
                                        I ain't trying to get arrested yet
                                        I just got here
                                        I sprang with the quickness like lightning, disappeared
                                        I whistled for a cab and when it came near
                                        The license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror
                                        If anything I could say that this cab was rare
                                        But I thought 'Nah, forget it' - 'Yo, homes to Bel Air'
                                        I pulled up to the house about seven or eigth
                                        And I yelled to the cabbie 'Yo homes smell ya later'
                                        I looked at my kingdom
                                        I was finally there
                                        To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air

                                        That’s how

                                              I heard in public now hes pretty good but in private with public hes a bit of a snob.. he did an interview in the early 2000s that was a bit more humble where he admitted he wanted the role pretty damn bad (contrary to current interview) and explained how much he tried and rehearsed it to the point where he mouthed the lines to the other actors and can be seen on playback today..
