Over the past two decades, Will Smith has completed his transition from being a rapper with a sitcom to one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. It’s going on ten years since Will Smith picked up the mic in a professional capacity. This was 2005 with Lost & Found, boasting the hit single, “Switch.”
Will Smith has since gone back and done hit movies upon movies, cementing his title as an A-lister. But, any recording artist can attest to this, once bitten by the music bug, it’s impossible to let go. This is something LL Cool J told Hip Hop Vibe when he spoke on his new album.
Also recording a new album is Will Smith, who talked to Hollyscoop News on the Focus red carpet. Currently, Will Smith and Kanye West are in the studio, putting together his new album. In the interview, Will Smith confirmed seven new tracks, but none that he likes enough to roll with, as of yet.
