Will Smith and Jimmy Fallon present to you: The History of Will, an epic (almost) three-minute rap about Will’s life and career. And it not only reminded us how extensive and impressive his career is but also that we need him to return to rapping ASAP!.
The rap began with his role as “Big Willie” in Philly, of course referring to his first time starring in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The rap swiftly moved on: “But a real big star needs a real big screen. So I had to spread my wings, if you know what I mean,” getting into his other career highlights, including “Men in Black and Bad Boys, too.” But it wasn’t all work-related, there were plenty of life highlights: “’97 married Jada, and she still set it off, any questions? You and she can have a Red Table Talk.”
Along with the smooth and hilarious lyrics, the performance was complete with giant props and dancers, which made it even more epic. Watch the full video to see the two in action and relive some of Will’s best bits . . . so far.
