Remember waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back when Will Smith was a rapper? He was a Philly kid who bro’ed down with his pal DJ Jazzy Jeff as part of the DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince duo, spouting off G-rated hits like ‘Parents Just Don’t Understand?’ Then he got the TV show, starred in movies and became one of the most money-in-the-bank movie stars on the planet, while releasing more inoffensive pop-rap like ‘Getting Jiggy With It?’

Well, Smith is revisiting his musical roots and is “working” on a new album with producer La Mars “Mars” Edwads, the knob twiddler who has collaborated with Snoop Dog and Wiz Khalifa.

“We’re working on Will Smith, bringing him back. That’s actually him on the other line right now,” Mars told XXL. While “working” could mean anything, it’s good to know that Big Willie Style is making a comeback and planning some new material. What about DJ Jazzy Jeff? Will he be a part of the new material? Could Papa Will duet with hair whipping daughter Willow? Wife Jada Pinkett-Smith fronts a hard rock band called Wicked Wisdom, which appeared on Ozzfest a few years back, so the hubby and wifey could also rock out together, too.

There’s no limits when it comes to Will Smith, who last released an album in 2005 in the form of ‘Lost and Found.’
