Will Smith Is Working on a Rap Comeback, Producer Says


Hollywood superstar Will Smith might be going back to his rapper roots, according to La Mar “Mars” Edwards, the prolific producer behind most of the Game‘s new LP ‘The R.E.D. Album.’

“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.

Should the breakthrough tween diva‘s daddy get back in the rap game or keep his focus on his immensely successful acting career?
