While covering the Red Bull 3Style World Finals according to HipHopDX, they were able to chat him up, and somehow it came up a question of a potential successor to the throne… You know, that one that spins?

DJ Jazzy Jeff had this to say:

“I think Chance [The Rapper] would be a really good Fresh Prince,” Jeff told DX. “‘Cause Chance always seems to have a lighthearted demeanor.
