A lot of time has passed since his days with Fresh Prince Will Smith, but Jeff Townes, aka DJ Jazzy Jeff, still knows how to rock the crowd. The hip-hop legend lent his spinning skills to Pro-Keds for a launch party to celebrate its Throwback pack of sneakers last month. He even created a special Pro-Keds music mix for the occasion. And this fall, Townes and Pro-Keds will release a special Jazzy Jeff version of the Royal Master style. Here, the Philadelphia native and sneaker lover weighs in on the best place to get a cheesesteak in his hometown and why Philadelphia 76ers player Allen Iverson will always have a special place in his heart.
Best cheesesteak spot in Philly:
Most memorable sports moment:
“When the Sixers and the Lakers played in the 2001 NBA Finals and Allen Iverson stepped over Tyronn Lue.”
Favorite getaway spot:
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. “It’s quiet, and the whales are there.”
Actor who’d play me in a movie:
“I’d play myself.”
