Will Smith Is Working on a Rap Comeback, Producer Says
“We’re working on Tip, we’re working on the ‘High School’ movie with Snoop and Wiz Khalifa,” he tells XXL Mag. “We’re working on Will Smith, bringing him back. That’s actually him on the other line right now…”
Will Smith’s last album ‘Lost and Found’ dropped in 2005, full of the safe rap he’s favored since his days as one-half of the hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince — no profanity, maybe a “damn” or two. Those radio-friendly rhymes helped the duo score the first ever Grammy in the Rap category in 1998, but now it’s Smith’s daughter Willow that’s strutting down the Grammy’s red carpet.
