15 Hip-Hop Television Theme Songs

The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air

Who would have guessed that Will Smith’s jump from music into television would launch one of the most wildly successful acting careers in the history of motion pictures? For kids of the 1980s, The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air was one of the most shaping television experiences of their young lives. This is best exemplified by exactly how much the lyrics from the iconic theme song is burned into the brain of every member of the Millenial Generation. Despite being the theme song for a television show, The Fresh Prince‘s theme is one of the most beloved and quotable rap songs in hip-hop history.
