The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air turns 30 this year and to commemorate the occasion, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith are throwing a virtual block party hosted by Jazzy Jeff’s MC Dayne Jordan.

The event — dubbed the “Break the Monotony Block Party” — kicks off Instagram Live on Saturday (May 9) and features a long list of party rockers such as Jazzy Jeff, DJ D-Nice, Just Blaze, Neil Armstrong and DJ Clark Kent. As most Fresh Prince fans will notice, the event title is a nod to the Hip Hop duo’s iconic hit “Summertime.”

Each DJ will go live from their individual Instagram handles and play music while paying homage to the Fresh Prince. In some instances, multiple DJs will perform simultaneously, giving fans a festival-like experience that will enable them to choose which DJ set to watch.

In addition to the block party, a limited-edition merch collection — “Fresh Prince / Summertime” — will hit the newly-launched Fresh Prince online store on May 9. The line boasts a 10+ piece unisex collection inspired by The Fresh Prince himself, his role in the beloved ’90s sitcom and Grammy Award-winning music catalog with Jazzy Jeff.
