Amir Mitchell-Townes Is Son of DJ Jazzy Jeff

Amir Mitchell Townes is the child of DJ and actor Jeffrey Allen Townes aka DJ Jazzy Jeff and his former partner Kim Mitchell. So, Amir, in addition to being a celebrity himself, is also a celebrity kid.

Amir, however, while growing up, did not realize the celebrity status of his father. He knew that his father was an actor and record producer, but he did not realize how big of a star he was. In an interview with Rolling Out in 2015, he stated:

“It was like he’s on a show and he’s performing. That was normal. That was my normality for so long. When I was conscious enough to realize that that was perceived as extraordinary. That’s when I really started to grasp it more.”

Mitchell Townes did not realize his father's superstar status in large part because his father's mega-hit show "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" finished airing three years before he was born. In the show, his old man played the character of Jazz, the best friend of Will Smith.

Not only in reel life but also in real life, Amir's father and megastar Will Smith are close friends and former band members. In the summer of 2019, "Aladdin" star sent a heartfelt message for Amir's father. In the Instagram post, he wrote:

"I've had nightmares before just imagining what my life would have been like without @djjazzyjeff,"

Now, as the news has broken that DJ Jazzy Jeff has Pneumonia and is suspected of having coronavirus, there is no doubt Will Smith is providing emotional support to his friend.
