It's shocking when you think about it, but through and through Will Smith is a pretty legit guy.
Yeah. It was always funny to me when people would diss Will Smith for being "soft" or "fake" or some stupid shit like that. And it was usually a lot of wannabe's saying that shit.....people who've done no dirt themselves but will only listen to rappers who rap about dirt. Just ass backwards thinking.
I mean, if you don't like his music, you don't like it. But the insults a lot of people had for Will were just dumb and ignorant. Will never really tried to be anything he's not in his music.
And while I don't like a large volume of his music.....Summertime and Brand New Funk are two of the best rap songs ever.
I also thought it was real cool of Will to do what he did with "So Fresh", exposing a new generation to legends. That was like 2000, and he was one of the biggest stars in the world(movie wise), and he puts out a single and video featuring Slick Rick, Biz Markie, and Jazzy Jeff(who were all 10 years past being big name stars), on some old school shit. And it was a great song, on top of that.
Meanwhile Eminem was talking shit, acting like a tough guy because he uses profanity. LOL. I think if it came down to it, we all know Will could kick Eminem's ass. But Em curses so he's hard!
