To some Will Smith will always be the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. On a recent visit to the British talk show The Graham Norton Show, Smith said he’s best known for the character he played in the 1990-1996 hit sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Good thing his name in the show was the same as his real name, as he was warned by former co-host Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton), it was what people would call him for the rest of his life. “[In] every country in the world that is the thing I am most known for, no matter how big the movies get,” said Smith.
Smith was in Europe to promote his movie Men in Black III when the host asked him to rap the theme song to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air he happily obliged. Gary Barlow from the British boy band Take That played the keyboard as Will rapped the song with the audience who seemed to know every word (thanks to a teleprompter!). Tom Jones looked on while bopping his head as the two jammed out to one of the best 90s television theme songs. Enjoy!
