Who would have thought Philadelphia Eagles fans Will Smith and ?uestlove would be where they are now?
It’s been a long time since Will Smith brilliantly detailed one of the worst days of his adolescence in the 1987 hip hop classic, Parents Just Don’t Understand. A 1989 Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance followed as did his hit television show, The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.
Since then, we could say that the sky has been the limit, but that wouldn’t be accurate. Smith shot for the moon and took up residency there. He’s a reminder to Birds fans all over the planet that Eagles fans, regardless of where they come from, can become American icons.
They’re two different types of artists, but they share tons of similarities. ?uestlove, a man formerly known as ‘Brother Question’, is a hip-hop icon who, like Will Smith, hails from the City of Brotherly Love. They’re also super fans of the guys in green.
