Definitely one of the most classic and representative songs ever created for the summer. A anthem if you will, whenever Hip Hop heads think of the summer we think of this song. Will Smith aka The Fresh Prince and His DJ Jazzy Jeff nailed this one. Just a fell good song about the innocence of summer no matter where you’re from. Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago & etc, the summer is the summer.
