The hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince were first signed to a record label by Paul Oakenfold in 1985. Oakenfold, now a well-known recording artist himself, was working as an A&R man for Champion Records when Hip-Hop was becoming a driving force in the music world. Oakenfold also signed Salt-n-Pepa and later worked as the promoter and British agent for the Beastie Boys and Run-D.M.C. The single “Girls Ain’t Nothing But Trouble” was the first charting hit for DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince. The track sampled the theme song from I Dream of Jeannie and charted on the Hot 100 over two years after it hit the Hot Black Singles chart due to the popularity the duo were enjoying at that time in their career.
