Will Smith

Raps Again for Awesome

SUMMERTIME Remix!!!

EXCLUSIVE

We guarantee Will Smith is about to make your head bob, because he's re-recorded the magical words -- "Here it is the groove slightly transformed" ... yes, it's for a remix of "Summertime."

TMZ obtained a snippet of Big Willie's return to the rap game -- one minute and ten seconds of awesomeness that he laid down to intro "Summertime 3" ... a new mixtape by DJ Jazzy Jeff and Mick Boogie.

The track will be available for download on June 11.

We're told Will the Fresh Prince was amped to record the all new, smoothed out version of the 1991 classic. He and Jeff are still tight even though they haven't done a CD together since 1993.

I'm sure you knew that we would not be bobbing our heads to an unfinished snippet on which Will is clearing his throat and it sounds like the part that was gong to be differant from the original was just about to begin when it cut off. My guess is Will will be unhappy that it got out.

Umm, what do I say about this??? The portion I heard SUCKED. And I love Will Smith and I loved this song. I surely hope this was a demo and not the actual recording going out to the public,
The only thing I liked about this "sample" was the slow 70's type music. Will tried to hard to sound like Barry White.

wonder if he'll start rapping again in order to tour for a while- hitting major cities- with the main purpose behind it all actually being to promote the 2 kids in their careers???
if so- couldn't pay me enough to go!

Had to listen to it twice. Wasn't even sure it was Will the first time because he was trying to use a deep voice. I miss the high pitched fresh prince.
