LOS ANGELES (AP) — Will Smith may be “Gettin’ “Jiggy Wit It” again. He says he’s hoping to return to hip-hop and never stopped recording privately.
Smith, whose last solo album was released in 2005, and Kanye West were photographed in a recording studio together in Brazil last February.
“Oh, so you know. You’ve been paying attention?” the 46-year-old actor said in a recent interview.
“I did a fun thing with Jimmy Fallon the other night messing with music, so you know, I got the bug. I might see if I got one more in me.”
Smith was the MC of the hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince with his childhood friend Jeffrey “DJ Jazzy Jeff” Townes.
He starred in the TV series “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” His films include “Ali,” ”The Pursuit of Happyness” and the “Men in Black” movies.
“Over the years I’ve always recorded,” he said. “… Yeah, tons of songs. But … it’s nothing I like. Recording will be a part of my life forever whether or not I feel that something is of the quality for public consumption.”
His new film, the crime comedy “Focus,” will be in theaters on Feb. 27.
