DNC member George Norcross expressed his excitement for the event in this particular city:

"With the Philadelphia skyline in the background, it is a perfect time to bring Camden out of the shadows for the country to see what can be done to rebuild even the most troubled of our cities. The transformation of Camden highlights the hard work of many, including the building and trade craftsmen who are committed to rebuilding urban areas throughout America."

And this is sure to be one of Philly's largest entertainment events in convention history!

Tickets for the Live Nation event held on July 28 will be available for all convention delegates and thousands of other invited guests.

Will Smith Also Boycotted The 1989 Grammys Before Skipping Out On This Year's Oscars! Watch His Vintage Interview!

no title

History repeats itself!

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith will not be attending the Oscars this year to protest the lack of diversity in the Academy's nominations.

It seemed that the Concussion star was following his wife's lead after he joined her call to boycott this year's ceremony — but Jada actually took a page out of her husband's playbook!

Back in 1989, the Fresh Prince refused to attend at the Grammys for its lack of integration!

That year, the ceremony included a rap performance category for the first time — and nominated Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff for their hit Parents Just Don't Understand.

POLL: Should Chris Rock Joke About #OscarsSoWhite?

While that historic year was a huge step towards making rap music mainstream, that particular segment of the show wasn't going to be televised!

In an old interview Entertainment Tonight dug up from its archives, the hip-hop duo explained why they thought the design of the show was "a slap in the face."

It's sad to see that other sectors of the industry haven't progressed that much a quarter of a century later!

Ch-ch-check out a young Fresh Prince explaining his boycott (below)!

Fresh Prince Forever! Will Smith Confirms To Ellen DeGeneres That He's Going On Tour With DJ Jazzy Jeff!

no title

It looks like Will Smith is definitely going back to his hip-hop roots with the help of an old friend!

Last month, the Fresh Prince announced he was going on tour with special guest DJ Jazzy Jeff — Smith's musical counterpart from their days as the hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince!

Back in the '80s, the Girls Ain't Nothing But Trouble performers dropped five albums before taking a hiatus in 1993 after the success of The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air!

On Thursday's Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Concussion star confirmed that he and Jazzy would be reuniting on stage in his upcoming tour to perform their old hits — as well as some NEW music! AH-Mazing!

The rapper said his biggest reason for the nostalgic reunion is because the duo "never actually had a chance" to do a full tour back in the day — better late than never, we suppose!

Check out the video (below) to get the full deets!

Will Smith still does Summertime better than anyone else!

The Independence Day star proved it over the weekend by jumping onstage with former partner DJ Jazzy Jeff at a Palms pool party in Las Vegas to perform some classic hits!

Of course, Will is a little older and wiser. His son Trey Smith, AKA DJ AcE, was on hand spinning as well.

BUT Will showed that he was still young at heart. And by heart we mean chest. Because when he whipped his shirt off, DAYUM man has some nice pecs!
