Will Smith Recording Music With Kanye West
Will Smith says Kanye has "been pushing" him to record more music.
Kanye West spent the past week premiering new songs from what is thought to be his next studio album, but that's not all Yeezy has cooking.
While doing press for his upcoming science fiction film After Earth, Will Smith revealed that he and Kanye have been hitting the studio together.
"I've been messing around with Kanye," admitted Smith in an interview with HipHollywood. "We went in the studio a couple of times. I might get the bug."
The Fresh Prince cautioned that he wouldn't put out the music unless he truly felt passionate about the fruits of the duo's efforts. "I'm not going to do it unless I'm truly inspired, but 'Ye's been pushing me a little bit."
Will Smith's last album was 2005's Lost and Found, which featured the singles "Switch" and "Party Starter." Guest appearances on the record included Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, DJ Kool Herc, Robin Thicke, and more.
Last year, Smith and longtime collaborator DJ Jazzy Jeff teamed up with Mick Boogie to record a new version of their classic song "Summertime."
