Will Smith Recording Music With Kanye West

Will Smith says Kanye has "been pushing" him to record more music.

Kanye West spent the past week premiering new songs from what is thought to be his next studio album, but that's not all Yeezy has cooking.

While doing press for his upcoming science fiction film After Earth, Will Smith revealed that he and Kanye have been hitting the studio together.

"I've been messing around with Kanye," admitted Smith in an interview with HipHollywood. "We went in the studio a couple of times. I might get the bug."

The Fresh Prince cautioned that he wouldn't put out the music unless he truly felt passionate about the fruits of the duo's efforts. "I'm not going to do it unless I'm truly inspired, but 'Ye's been pushing me a little bit." 

Will Smith's last album was 2005's Lost and Found, which featured the singles "Switch" and "Party Starter." Guest appearances on the record included Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, DJ Kool Herc, Robin Thicke, and more.

Last year, Smith and longtime collaborator DJ Jazzy Jeff teamed up with Mick Boogie to record a new version of their classic song "Summertime."

    Of course, Willie just has/had his Overbrook Productions around when he made Wild Wild West in end of the '90s, so there's a door to his own label as well.

  • @arutopsipuikko

    I think Willie should just go on his own. There he won't be doing bucks to anyone else than himself. Also he'd be able to ask his kids to signup. Wouldn't be a bad idea to setup that kind of family-business. Jaden could take the lead after Willie gets to his years.

    This just in. Good music is close to signing Positive K.

    His niche was storytelling raps and an awesome live show, I hope he goes back to that. Throw in some Jazzy jeff tracks too.

    More proof that GOOD music is falling apart. Kanye wants to sign Will Smith lol. Other than Big Sean, who would rather be on YMCMB, Good music is a bunch of has-beens. Q-Tip, Talib, Pusha T, Mos Def, Will Smith. What a joke!!!

    • Pharaoh

      yet Will Smiths "Big Willie Style" sold more on it's own than the entire YMCMB roster has sold combined and Will Smith is an actual Hip Hop legend while not a single member of YMCMB is or ever will be

      The irony. YMCMB is a label full of never-has-beens. Everyone on that label that isn't Wayne, Drake, and Nicki are a bunch of lazy shitheads. GOOD Music shits on YMCMB anyday. Will Smith is not going to sign to anyone; if anything, he'll go independent. BTW, Big Sean doesn't want to go to YMCMB. He's good at GOOD, who's not falling apart.

      Everything you say is bullshit lies. READ BEFORE YOU SPEAK, DUMBASS.

  • YESSIR

    WILL SMITH GONNA SIGN WITH GOOD MUSIC LIKE A BOSS, NOT LIKE THE BITCHASS NIGGAS AT YOUNG MONEY. WE SOME HOES OUT HERE.

  • K Dot

    Why would Will Smith need to sign with Young Money they have an long list of failed artist the only ones eating are Wayne, Nick, and Drake with them the label is a rgaveyard. Will Smith doesn't need a deal when he could cop the label. Beside he's respected in the game by many so if he isn't riding indy a better look would be with Jay or Dre...Young Money can't market a caliber artist that actually would have something to say. Will Smith comes from an era where HipHop was a professional sport. Young Money is an AND1 team that couldn't make it on a professional level. New York Professional HipHop is coming back! Tired of that Rapping Bullshit!

  • dentaldamboy

    Yeezy has been presurring Will Smith to sign over to YMCMB where they have the best deals. Yeezy wanted to sign to Cash Money like Mannie Fresh said but, to add more details to his true story, Jay Z threatened to have Kayne shot like he did with biggie.
