It's sorta sad to realize that kids these days probably only know Will Smith from his blockbuster movies like Men in Black, I Am Legend or Independence Day, but back in the day Smith was a hip-hop artist who teamed with DJ Jazzy Jeff on a bunch of iconic hits like "Parents Just Don't Understand" and "Summertime," the latter of which was a bit of a personal anthem for this writer because it came out when I was a teenager who spent many weekends cruising around in his car with nothin' to do but play this song a few hundred times ... very loudly, might I add.
Smith has taken a break from the music scene as of late, popping up here and there will a little somethin' somethin' for his old-school fans, and many of us were a bit jaded when he didn't provide a track for the recent Men in Black installment. But fear not, the Fresh Prince has reteamed with his old buddy DJ Jazzy Jeff on a remix of his hit "Summertime" for Jeff's album "Summertime vol. 3," due out this summer.
You can listen to a snippet of it below, and we've also provided the original music video for you to check out. Ah, memories ...
