Will Smith Says He and DJ Jazzy Jeff Have Been Working For The Last 6 Months
#DXclusive: With his upcoming Netflix debut "Bright" already locked and loaded, is The Fresh Prince return to claim his throne next?
Hollywood, CA – 2017 was another monumental year for Will Smith. Bad Boys 3: Bad Boys Of the Life and the Poor Boys 4 has been announced, was thrown to a repeat of Robin Williams' epic role of Genius in the industry of the upcoming live-action Aladdin reboot, his son Jaden dropped one of the best debut albums that Hip-Hop has heard in quite some time with SYRE, and most pressingly, its Netflix exclusive of the Brilliant film is the goal of redefining the way in which it assimilates the film.
HipHopDX was able to catch up with the Fresh Prince in the press conference of their direct-to-Netflix debut to discuss the film, the current political state of our country, his career as a rapper, and his children.
As a double threat in the music and film, we have not heard a peep from Big Willie on wax since 2005 (outside of his widely criticized EDM-meets-riddim collision course "illuminate" with DJ Jazzy Jeff in October). However, we can all see that the change in the next year.
"I've been sniffing around it," He tells HipHopDX when asked about the chances of returning to music full-time. "I've been getting hyped about it. [It has] been a minute. I have been completely on the actor in mind for me and Jeff start to go a bit in the last six to eight months [and] we have been doing something. I just have to find that lane; to find the way back. It is a part of my heart. I love it. I can make records all the time. I have a lot of things that I can do at home. It is not only the things that I'm excited about being able to feel comfortable leaving them in the world. I'm trying to find that inspiration, that thing that sparks me to get back [to music]."
It is a seldom celebrated fact, but DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince were the first winners of the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance in 1989. The fact that they are willing to get to work on the study that speaks of his love for the culture.
