Before Will Smith became a high profile movie star, he was known as “The Fresh Prince” of hip hop. He recently had an interview with Sway, the rapper gave us glimpses of the Fresh Prince era. Not known for being a “reality based or street rapper” such as Tupac Shakur, Will Smith is famous for his fun songs such as “SummerTime” and “Parents Just Don’t Understand”.

TMZ actually caught up with the Bad Boys For Life star in New York, and the cameraman inquired about the possibility of a new album. “Maybe, potentially,” says Will, affirming that it “could happen.” If so, it would be Will’s first project since 2005, when he dropped off Lost & Found. In the interim, he has come through with the occasional verse, with his most recent being on Logic’s Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind track “Don’t Be Afraid To Be Different.”
