XXL just did this piece on Tone Trump I think deserves some more attention so check it out below.
Tone Trump created quite the splash with his nickname, The New Fresh Prince. But the rhyme slinger of Young Jeezy’s CTE World isn’t trying to slight Will Smith with the name. Instead he’s paying homage to his fellow Philadelphia native. “Will is one of the dudes I look up to,” Trump tells XXL. “He came from West Philly, a place were many Black males aren’t given a chance to win and built a empire! He was always swagged up, with a beautiful wife, family and he’s a trendsetter! Tone Trump — I’m the New Fresh Prince.” In celebration of his The New Fresh Prince mixtape, which drops today, Tone talks to XXL to cast his own rappers, singers and even comedians for his own version of the Smith’s hit show, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.—Mark Lelinwalla
