Will Smith Announces New Music Is on the Way: ‘I Got the Beast Back’
Smith made the announcement on his Youtube page with a rap that pointed out that he's no newbie to the rap game, with the accolades to show it.
“20 years of swag y’all just witnessed, let me remind everybody who Will Smith is,” he rhymes. “Rappers make it rain, let their money hit ya/ If I throw my money up, sh*t, I’ll prolly kill a stripper.”
Smith says he's ready to return to rap because he feels rejuvenated.
“20 years of swag ya’ll just witnessed/stop the divorce rumors and mind ya’ll damn business," he says, addressing those pesky divorce rumors to his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.
“What happens is you get to a point where you get empty,” he said of his return. “So I’m excited, I’m re-energized and I’m creating wildly like I used to. I’m ready. I got the beast back," he said.
Smith’s last album was 2005’s Lost & Found. As of now, there's no word on when the new project will drop.
