Cool Videos: Will Smith raps and dances with Alfonso Ribiero and DJ Jazzy Jeff on the Graham Norton Show

May. 28, 2013by: Alex Maidy

Do you remember back when Will Smith was a rapper and not a Hollywood superstar? I remember tuning to NBC for new episodes of THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR. Hell, I owned his first two albums with DJ Jazzy Jeff. Those were the days. Then, INDEPENDENCE DAY came around and the rest is history. I still long for the old days when Will Smith was cool and not someone whose movies I approached with apprehension. Probably not a good sign that he teamed up with M. Night Shyamalan, the other Hollywood bigwig who makes me apprehensive.

But, while out promoting AFTER EARTH with his son Jaden, Will visited The Graham Norton show to plug the movie and talk switched to whether father and son have recorded music together. After little goading, Will took the mic and beatboxed for his son. Now, much like his skills as an actor, Jaden is a pisspoor MC. But, that was when things got awesome.

Check out the video for the treat of the year: DJ Jazzy Jeff shows up for Will Smith to rap the classic Fresh Prince theme song and then comes Alfonso Ribiero, Carlton himself to dance! A glorious moment for us old folks!

Sure, it has nothing to do with AFTER EARTH, but that may be the best part. Watch this video and enjoy the throwback to the 1990s. And, if you still want to check it out, AFTER EARTH opens on May 31, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: I know all of the words to the Fresh Prince theme song. Do you?

They Should Start A Vegas Act

Other than Jaden rapping at the beginning, the rest is awesomeness! I'd see DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince featuring Alfonso Ribiero in Vegas anytime for any price =D

all the words?

even the cut-out second verse?

"I begged and pleaded with her day after day
But she packed my suite case and sent me on my way
She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket.
I put my walkman on and said, 'I might as well kick it'.

First class, yo this is bad
Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass.
Is this what the people of Bel-Air living like?
Hmmmmm this might be alright.

But wait, I hear the prissy, bourgeois and all that
Is this the type of place that they should

I don't think so
I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for the prince of Bel-Air

Well uh, the plane landed and when I came out
There was a dude who looked like a cop standing there with my name out
I ain't trying to get arrested yet.
I just got here!
I sprang with the quickness, like lightening disappeared"

Horrible kid

Unfortunately because of his father we are going to be spoon fed Jaden for years to come. Newsflash just because your dad rapped doesn't mean you can. YOU SUCK. He is just a dumb kid who should be forced to train like every other actor/rapper and when he is older give him a chance. I mean seriously casting your son with you in not one but TWO movies? Fucking ridiculous.

It's a dark, angry world where you live. Wow. He's a kid. Calm down. And being angry about actors pulling strings for their kids? That happens everywhere - lest you think everyone who gets into Harvard or other elite universities does it on their own merits.

Because I'm tired of stars pulling strings for their kids. And it especially removes me from the movie when you cast your own son to be in all the movies with you. It's just arrogant. "I am a famous rapper/actor let's make sure my kids who are little and suck make the same impact trollololo" it's just dumb force feeding.

Thats some kind of hatred for a 14 year told kid (or what ever the fuck his age is)

Jaden definitely had charisma in The Karate Kid. He is also trying very hard according to Jackie Chan who wishes he could swap him with his own son.

Obviously Will Smith casts a very big shadow on Jaden. I just hope they don't try to mould him into the next Will Smith

Dude, Jaden sucked. His voice doesn't sound good or cool at all.

I will be honest, I watched it to see the "Carlton" dance cause it's awsome. My bro-in-law does an amazing version of that dance too. Jaden needs practice. What eves. It was fun to see.

Epic! Unnecessary hate being thrown at Jaden though, he spit fine and was a very good hype man when Will got going.

NTL this was awesome, thank you for posting it, this is the coolest Will Smith has been for a while

The anger being directed by grown adults towards a teenager is unreal to me. Appreciate this for what it is - a son and a father have a good relationship. The father is doing what he can to help his son find success. We should have more of that in the world.
