Actor Will Smith recently went behind the microphone to rap about the history of his life. He did the rap on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”, putting his spin on the show’s fan-favorite musical bit “The History of…”, reports eonline.com.
The “Bad Boys For Life” star and host Jimmy Fallon donned matching black hoodies and white tees as they took viewers on a trip down memory lane, starting with Will’s humble music beginnings.
Jimmy rapped: “You seen him in billboards/ Starring in shows/ But there’s a lot about him that you might not know.”
Then, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star took over with a verse about his early rapping career. “Back in ’85/ I rocked the house till it turned to rubble/ Every time I told y’all girls ain’t nothing but trouble/ Jeff (Allen Townes)’s the DJ, I’m the rapper/ You can call him Jazz, you can call me dapper/ Then I was rappin’ just to make bus fare/ Then I moved in with my Auntie and Uncle in Bel Air.”
He continued, “Six whole years I lived with the Banks/ So if you can dance to Carlton, I’ll still give thanks.” Honoring his TV brother Alfonso Ribeiro, Will and Jimmy then showed off their dance moves by breaking out “The Carlton”. (IANS)
