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 is where I
spent most of my days. Chillin' out max and relaxin' all cool,
shooting some bball outside of the school. When a couple of
guys, they were up to no good, started making trouble in my
neighborhood. I got in one little fight and my mom got scared and
said, "You're moving with you auntie and uncle in Bel-Air. I begged
and pleaded with her, they had the neighbor, she packed my
suitcase and sent me on my way. She gave me a kiss and then she
gave me a ticket. I put my Walkman on and said, "Might as well

the type of place they 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.

license plate said "Fresh" and it had dice in the mirror! If anything, I
could say this cab was rare, but I said, "Naw forget it. Yo homes to
I pulled up to a house about seven or eight and I yelled to the
cabby, "Yo homes, smell ya later!" Looked at my kingdom,
I was finally there. To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel-Air.
