"... I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 and yelled to the cabby, yo ho smell you later, looked at my kingdom I was finally there, to sit on my throne as the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."

Lol, I am so a kid of the 90's. Yay, back when TV was good and music was worth listening to, when games were about gameplay and not graphics. I think the only thing they missed was Gummi Bears, I loved that show.
