Will Smith’s Nephew, K-Smith, Preps Debut Album

ksmith.jpg17-year-old rapper, K-Smith, is using his status as the nephew of Grammy Award winning MC and movie star, Will Smith, to launch his own hip-hop career. Oddly enough, though, K-Smith draws parallels between his own life and the fictional tales of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, the TV character Will Smith played during the ‘90s. “I’m the real Fresh Prince,” Smith says. “[In Philly], I was in placements because I used to act up, sent away to juvenile facilities. Then I came out here and carried my problems to LA a little bit. When I finally came to this music thing it got me on the right path.” But according to Smith, the similarities with Big Willy end there. “[People] think I’m going to follow in the footsteps of my uncle,” he says. “You won’t hear crazy cursing from me, but you’ll hear more edgy records. I have a cut called ‘Million Bucks’ that samples Ludacris on the hook where I rhyme, ‘I hit the club, when I lave, they all be in awe/got shorties takin’ off they bra like it’s Mardi Gras.” “Million Bucks” is one of the select tracks off K-Smith’s upcoming debut, Streetz To Hollywood, which will drop in 2008. The LP’s lead single is a collaboration with Omarion entitled “Better Man.” For more information on K-Smith, visit http://www.myspace.com/ksmithmovement.
