Will Smith Raps ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ Theme Song (VIDEO)
The Men In Black star did a throwback to the ’90s when he recited a few lines from the theme song to his hit show Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on the British talk show The Graham Norton Show. “That is the thing that I am most known for,” Will admits of his breakout role. “As long as they are screaming Will, I’m cool. … It is so funny that that many people recognize that theme song.”
The 43-year-old actor revealed that he picked his character’s name on the show, and decided on Will after his costar Alfonso Ribeiro, aka Carlton Banks, told him fans would be screaming his character’s name for the rest of his life.
Graham decided to test the A-lister, asking him if he could remember the famous rap that accompanied the show.
While a fellow guest of the program played the keyboard, Will rapped the hit track along with the audience, who, of course knew every word.
