Perhaps taking the sage advice of his child of infinity Jaden Smith – because how can words be real if our tongues are actually pudding? – Will Smith is rumoured to be on the verge of going back to his West Philadelphia roots and exercising his musical prowess once again.
The Freshest of Princes, famous for winning the first ever Grammy award for Rap Performance and also for crafting the greatest movie tie-in anthems of all time, has been the subject of whispers that suggest he’s working on new music with both philosophical being of pure light and vibrational energy Jaden, as well as Kanye West.
And just in case you ever thought, even for a second, that Will has lost even an ounce of the heat that he had throughout the 90s, he’s more than happy to prove all of you savagely wrong.
Appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman, Will took the apparently golden opportunity of simply walking on set for the first time to rip through a verse of his 1997 hit Gettin Jiggy Wit It – the unexpected hit single from his unexpected hit album Big Willie Style.
Why? Because he goddamned well can.
Additional bonus points for making David Letterman the most uncomfortable white person in the world for two seconds after telling him “there’s a negro inside of you, Dave.“
It might need a bit of dusting off, but Will Smith still sits atop his throne. And the king, kids. The king stay the king.
