Is the Fresh Prince Back? Will Smith Performs Improvised Rap
He’s still getting jiggy with it!
Will Smith treated fans to a sampling of his classic hit “Summertime” on the Late Show with David Letterman on Monday night.
Before heading over to the couch to promote his new movie After Earth, Will grabbed an extra microphone from bandleader Paul Shaffer. Accompanied by a loud and excited audience, Will broke into the first verse of the song and continued on for about a minute before settling in for his interview.
Will, who is now best known for his acting, has not released a rap album since 2005’s Lost and Found.
The brief performance does beg the question: Will we see a DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince reunion anytime soon? Maybe not. But Will was spotted with Kanye West in a Brazilian studio back in February.
