Published Oct 31, 2018Halloween is the perfect time to revisit scary things from the past, including Will Smith's rap career. The long-lost video for the Fresh Prince's "Nightmare on My Street" has resurfaced, and it's quite a doozy.
The long VHS rip of the video was discovered by The Hollywood Reporter, and now it's here for all of us to enjoy.
The song was originally said to be intended for A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, but New Line passed on the project. Likely to avoid any legal issues, the video ends with the following disclaimer:
"Nightmare on My Street" is not a part of and has not been embodied in the soundtrack of any Nightmare on Elm Street motion picture. Neither this song nor this video is authorized, licensed or affiliated with the Nightmare on Elm Street films, New Line Cinema Corp., The Elm Street Venture or the fourth New Line / Heron Venture.
That said, it certainly references Freddy Krueger. Revisit the horrors of Fresh Prince below.
