Will Smith Enters His Dad-Rap Phase on "Fiesta" Remix

by Eric Thurm

As the seasons change, so, too, do the careers of extremely famous people. In this case, it's Will Smith's return to rapping. The move has been a long time coming (he has reportedly been in the studio with Kanye several times over the last few years), and his choice for a first new track -- a verse on a remix of Colombian group Bomba Estereo's "Fiesta" -- is interesting precisely in how low-key it is. This isn't a grand proclamation of the comeback of the Fresh Prince (King?), it's just a decently competent verse from one of the most successful dudes in the business. Also, we know he didn't name the song, but "Fiesta" is like, the most dad-rap name for a song Will Smith could have used for the beginning of his comeback. Do you think he consulted Jaden at all first? (He should have.) [via Complex]
