DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith Contemplating New Album

jeff-will.jpgThe legendary duo, DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince, haven’t recorded an album together since 1993’s Code Red. Since then, Will Smith has gone on to become one of the biggest movie stars in the world, while Jazzy Jeff focused on his own albums, The Magnificent (2002) and The Return of the Magnificent (2007). Now, the duo is possibly considering a reunion album and tour. “We’ve been talking about making a record [and] going on tour,” Jazzy Jeff tells “It’s just about making a schedule. Will is pretty much one of the biggest movie stars in the world. It’s really difficult because it’s hard for him to just say, I’m going to take off two years and focus on just going on the road or just going into the studio to make a record. [But] every time I talk to Will, he really wants to do it. We talked about possibly going on the road sometime this year and doing some stuff. His heart is there, he wants to do it.” Also, in a recent interview with The Sun, Jazzy Jeff tells the publication that indeed, the duo is getting back together and an album might be ready by November. “We talk about it all the time but recently he came up to me and said he was very serious about it and wants to do something very soon,” Jeff told The Sun. “We’re aiming for November.”
