Will Smith Plots His Hip-Hop Comeback

For a guy who was introduced to the world as a rapper, Will Smith has moved about as far away from the hip-hop world as he has from Bel-Air. Not for much longer, though! In an interview with XXL, producer La Mar “Mars” Edwards said he's currently working with Big Willie on a comeback. From that, the Playlist came up with an interesting theory: Smith must be recording a song for Men in Black 3. Think about it: MIB3 comes out next summer and Smith's song from the first movie was one of his biggest ever. This would be the perfect opportunity to resurrect his dormant rapping career, and as long as he can lock down another alien to dance with, it's certain to be a hit. [XXL, Playlist]
