Tour Updates: !!!, DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince

Mega-hit sitcom namesake and wit-tastic centerpiece, the Fresh Prince, a.k.a Will Smith, hopes to reunite with “Summertime” collaborator and Banks residence pest DJ Jazzy Jeff for an album and tour, reports. “We always talk about doing a Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince record and a huge tour, we just have to clear the time to do it. Right now, the plan is we are supposed to go out on tour together at the end of this year,” Smith reportedly said. Details regarding funky-fresh collaborations with Uncle Phil, Aunt Viv, Hillary, Ashley, or Butler Geoffrey have yet-to-be announced.

Meanwhile, Sacramento dance-punk collective !!!, a.k.a. Chk Chk Chk, have added a handful of performances to their North American tour behind Myth Takes, the band’s third album, which arrived March 5 via Warp, Pitchfork reports. !!!, whose tour was previously slated to cover the West Coast, Canada, and New England in April and May before heading to Europe for a string of appearances, have appended nine dates to their U.S. tour outing, including stops in cities such as Chicago, St. Louis, and Charlottesville.
