We all know that in west Philadelphia is where Will Smith was born and raised, but for the rest of his story, you just have to listen to these rhymes. Smith rapped the history of Will Smith with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show and let’s just say it was very informative.
Smith and Fallon kicked off the track by showing the City of Brotherly Love a whole lot of it. His TV cousin Carlton also got a shout-out as well as his “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It” dance. The rap set up the timeline for just how Will Smith became Will Smith and it did it in under three minutes.
Of course, that includes starring turns in Men In Black, Independence Day, and Bad Boys. “He even got Kevin James a date in Hitch,” as Fallon reminded fans. But, when it’s all said and done, Smith says he’s just a “bad boy for life.” So the Willennium might be over, but the Willaissance is clearly just beginning.
Bad Boys For Life is in theaters January 17.
