While most people recognize Will Smith as a famous actor, few also know him as a rapper. Under his pseudonym The Fresh Prince, he became a popular icon in movies as well as in the music industry. After a hiatus of nearly ten years since his last album release, he now plans to make a comeback.
During a special screening of his latest movie ‘Focus’ in London, Will Smith revealed that he’s been thinking of going back to rap for a while. In fact, it’s pretty much in the works now, as he revealed that he just jammed in the studio with Kanye West. However, Smith is of the opinion that things still aren’t that cemented yet. Well, in that case, we’ll just have to wait and see what’s in store for us!
Fortunately for Smith, he’s got some help in working on some new songs from his 16-year old son Jaden. Apparently, Jaden told him to write out things he doesn’t like. He also added, “I can’t write and stop. I have to keep going and going and write them out. I’ve never worked like that before but I think I might give that a shot.”
Back in the 1990s, The Fresh Prince was among those who worked out on pop culture with his songs like ‘Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It’ and ‘Miami’. During this time, he also had a big break on TV shows with ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’. Smith’s last solo rap album was ‘Lost and Found’, released in 2005.
While he continues work on his music, Smith has also been keeping up on his acting career on TV and movie. His film ‘Focus,’ in which he co-stars with Margot Robbie, is all set to release on Friday, Feb. 27.
Smith will also be acting as the executive producer of an upcoming TV show, which is based on his 2005 movie ‘Hitch’.
