Will Smith Teams Up With His Old Buddy DJ Jazzy Jeff, Lays Down New Vocals For “Summertime Remix”

by (@zaragolden)

Looks like Will Smith is back to making moves on the mic. Ahead of Men In Black III‘s release, Will Smith gamely rapped the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song along with an eager Graham Norton Show audience, and then he flexed a freestyle on 106 & Park. And you know what? He sounded pretty great! However, he explained that “There are too many people in my house making music right now,” dashing our hopes of a real return to rap.

And so The Fresh Prince returns instead with a remix of his still classic “Summertime.” The song leads the third installment of DJ Jazzy Jeff and Mick Boogie‘s Summertime mixtape series.

“A groove slightly transformed,” he rhymes over a drawn-out rework of the famous Kool & the Gang sampling-beat. Sounding his 43-years-old, he goes on to suggests that it might be “a little something to break the monotony of all that hard-core dance that’s gotten to be a bit out of control.” Funny how a line that’s over twenty years old can still resonate so strongly in present-day 2012.

TMZ has a snippet of the rework, and the rest of the’90s inspired, “cooler than those ice-cold treats” mixtape is available for FREE download over here.
