Will Smith isn’t just an entertainment juggernaut, he’s also a die-hard Hip Hop fan — and he’s using his platform to promote one of his favorite artists. On Friday (June 23), the actor and rapper took to Facebook where he posted the visual for Joyner Lucas‘ latest single. “Broski,” while singing the artist’s praises. “My Favorite Rapper!,” Smith wrote Smith, alongside the clip.
On Friday (June 23), Lucas dropped “Broski,” the fifth individual release from his forthcoming LP, Not Now, I’m Busy. The video, which stars singer and Power actor Rotimi, is an illustration of how friends change when money and power enter the equation.
Check out Will Smith’s post below:
The track is one of many, including “Cut U Off” featuring YoungBoy Never Broke Again, “What’s That?,” “Blackout” backed by Future, and “Devil’s Work Part 2″ in which the Grammy-nominated rapper has given fans a glimpse of what to expect from his first album since 2020.
The “I’m Not Racist” rapper’s debut studio album, ADHD, debuted on Billboard 200’s Top 10 rankings and earned RIAA gold certification. He has since made a name for himself as an imaginative, thought-provoking, and often polarizing MC.
Meanwhile, the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star has been busy in his own right as of late. In late March, Smith and Michael B. Jordan — who had announced a sequel to the former’s 2007 post-apocalyptic thriller I Am Legend in spring 2022 — delivered details about the movie’s plot.
“This will start a few decades later than the first,” the film’s producer and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman told Deadline in February, noting that I Am Legend 2 will follow an alternate ending that was available on the two-disc special edition DVD release of the original film where Will’s character doesn’t die. “That will be especially visual in New York. I don’t know if they’ll climb up to the Empire State Building, but the possibilities are endless.”
She added of the film series, which is based on a novel of the same name, written by Richard Matheson in 1954: “We trace back to the original Matheson book and the alternate ending as opposed to the released ending in the original film. What Matheson was talking about was that man’s time on the planet as the dominant species had come to an end. That’s a really interesting thing we’re going to get to explore. There will be a little more fidelity to the original text.”
Further, Smith has partnered up with Martin Lawrence once more for a fourth installment of the fan-favorite Bad Boys franchise; as announced earlier this year.
“It’s about that time. It’s official. Bad Boys for life,” Smith said in a video announcing the film in January. “We shouldn’t have called it that though. The three was the ‘E’ but this is Bad Boys 4.”
Bad Boys For Life, the third installment in the series, raked in $ 426.5 million at the worldwide box office in 2020 – 25 years after 1995’s Bad Boys original collected $ 141 million globally.
