Will Smith's getting push from Kanye to make new music

Will Smith has been making more movies than music for a while now, but that doesn't mean he's done laying tracks.

As the "After Earth" star showed Letterman's "Late Show" audience on Monday night, he still knows how to rock a mic - as well as spit all of the lyrics to his hit with DJ Jazzy Jeff, "Summertime."

According to an interview with HipHollywood.com, Smith might have newer sounds on deck soon with a little encouragement from Kanye West. The two were spotted in a studio together in Brazil back in February.

"I've been messing around with Kanye, we went in the studio a couple times," Smith said. "I might get the bug. I'm not going to do it unless I'm truly inspired, but 'Ye's been pushing me a little bit."

Smith's last studio album, "Lost and Found," arrived in 2005.

    Can he stick to acting? hes already proven that he is not very musical. he cant sing and he has to put his words on others peoples music. Stick to what he knows, acting.

    I lost a lot of respect for Will Smith when he and his power hungry (only claps for black people at awards shows) wife started promoting their kids as the new best thing. Now that he is listening to the rude man known as kan-yay......I am done.

      Will seems to have become one of those big ego hollywood types. At this point who cares what he is into.

    I love Will Smith but I do NOT want to hear him making music. His comedic and light-hearted style worked well, but he's not a great lyricist and I think making a record would serve no purpose. That said, if he's inspired to do so, I get it. But I hope not. :)

      I adore Will smith. I respect the hell out of him. He is never 'Blue' and proves that black men can be intelligent, successful in Hollywood, and be a talented, decent man with sense.

      You know nothing of Will Smith's marriage. And Kim K made a marriage mistake. So what? I don't know them , but I also don't pretend to know them and make ridiculous assertions based on rumors and speculation. Check the mirror. And then check yourSELF.

    Wow… Unbelievable.. My friend Emily has just married to a handsome wealthy black manThey met through ~~MìхedMàtchìng.Çoм ~~Serious interracial dating is an ideal platform for afro romance for black & white singles. So, if you want to look for people with which you can date, you are at the right place.You can meet(lawyers,busy professionals, benefactors. models, celebrities, etc….)If you are single, perhaps you can have a try.

    The only push Kanye should be giving is a big hard one to get all that sh!t out of him. He's literally overflowing with sh!t.

      As an action actor , Dont think Will is overated, as a talented artist I dont think Kanye is either. Kany might be more polarizing BC of his off the cuffs antics at times. Then again they might seemed overrated because their millions of fans always rattle up their naysayers.

      I guess, he was pretty good in Man on Fire.

      Oh wait, that was Denzel, a talented black actor.

    Reblogged this on 1000 Points Of View and commented:
    I think Will Smith's rap is too clean, decent and educated and this is why it didn't make it at the time; however, times and audiences have changed and therefore he may be considering joining and embracing the dark side...

      Will's made more mad money in movies that Ye ever will on music.
      Leave Will be. The day you can be a movie star (not) Kanye, then you got room to speak. Why not shut your gums, and actually marry the woman you are making a baby with. Real men do that. Look at Will and Jada.

    For the record, I am the REAL Pliny, not the false, perpetually bored, obsessed with dancing monkeys troll who also goes by the name Pliny. You will know the real Pliny by my crude commentary, my insults and vulgarity. Feel free to use the name Pliny if you too are a vulgarian. Feel free to use Pliny as a synonym for male and female genitalia, or for scatological references.
