After a tumultuous year in the spotlight, Will Smith is allegedly looking to make a comeback in the world of rap. The Academy Award-winning actor, whose movie career faced challenges following the infamous incident at the 2022 Oscars, is reportedly planning to revive his rap career.

Will Smith enjoyed a successful rap career in the late 80s and early 90s, primarily as part of the duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince. However, his focus shifted to television and film when his acting career took off.

Now, Smith is launching a new podcast called “Class of ’88,” which explores the music and artists of that era, including Queen Latifah, Run-DMC, and DJ Jazzy Jeff. The move is seen as a step towards returning to the music scene.

The actor made headlines in 2022 when he infamously slapped comedian Chris Rock during the Oscars ceremony, which had a significant impact on his movie career. Hollywood reportedly blackballed him to some extent following the incident.


According to RadarOnline, sources have suggest that Smith’s return to the rap world might be a strategic move to revive his career, as his actions in the rap community might be more forgivable compared to the highly publicized Oscar incident.

While Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff were known for their PG-rated music in the past, some believe that he may choose to adopt a harder, more explicit style of rap in light of recent personal challenges, including his publicized marital issues with Jada Pinkett Smith.

It remains to be seen how this rap comeback will play out and whether it will help Smith regain his footing in the entertainment industry. Despite his career setbacks, Smith has remained publicly supportive of his estranged wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who recently released a memoir revealing personal details about their marriage.

As Smith navigates these challenges, he seems determined to explore new opportunities and ventures, including a return to the world of music.
