What young rapper would you like to see play the iconic role in a potential remake?

(AllHipHop News) There's been a lot of talk about a possible reboot of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The original Quincy Jones-produced program starred the real-life rap duo of DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince.

Jazzy Jeff was recently asked which young rapper he would like to see step into Will Smith's shoes as a new Fresh Prince on television. The legendary deejay shouted out an award-winning emcee out of Chicago.

“I think Chance [The Rapper] would be a really good Fresh Prince,” Jeff told HHDX. "Because Chance always seems to have a lighthearted demeanor. He’s got a serious side to him but Chance is always smiling. Chance is always trying to do something positive. I think Chance would be a really good Fresh Prince.”

The Coloring Book creator displayed his acting/comedic chops when he hosted Saturday Night Live in 2017. Additionally, Jazzy Jeff offered, "Chance is a trailblazer and Will has always been a trailblazer."

According to reports, a revamped version of the 1990s classic sitcom could center around a female lead under the title of The Fresh Princess of Bel-Air. The show has not been officially confirmed, as of press time.
