Watch Will Smith Rap ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ Theme on ‘Ellen’
There are two songs that will get every person in the room rapping along regardless of race, age or gender. The first is The Notorious B.I.G.'s 'Juicy' and the other is Will Smith's 'Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' theme. Earlier today, Smith proved this unofficial stat true once again when he performed the hit TV show's theme song in a room full of women of all ages on Ellen. Dressed in leather pants and a fitted sweater--a far cry from the backward hats and Jordans he made popular on the show--the superstar actor broke out into the song and held the mic out as the crowd rapped and danced along.
While promoting his new flick, Focus, Smith has made the late night television rounds and performed live for the studio crowd. Three weeks ago he was on The Tonight Show and performed a duet of Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock's "It Takes Two" with Jimmy Fallon. A few days later, Smith was on Letterman and performed his monster hit 'Gettin' Jiggy Wit It.' All that's left is a performance of 'Miami' during halftime of a Miami Heat game and a rendition of 'Wild Wild West' on Conan. Maybe Stevie Wonder will even show up.
Perhaps Smith is just rehearsing for an upcoming tour. During a screening of Focus, the actor said he was in the studio with Kanye West and he's considering making music again. “I think I may have gotten inspired again,” said the Fresh Prince. “I went into the studio a few months ago with Kanye. Sorta top secret so, maybe.”
