Throwback Thursday: ‘A Nightmare on My Street’- The Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff
‘A Nightmare on My Street’ was the third single from DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince’s second studio album, ‘He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper’.
The song was a crossover hit in the US, reaching #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song was released as a single in early 1988. The song was considered for the soundtrack of the movie ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master’, but the producers of the film decided against its inclusion.
As a result, vinyl pressings of the album ‘He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper’ contain a disclaimer sticker that says, “[This song] is not part of the soundtrack…and is not authorized, licensed, or affiliated with the ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ films.”
