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.

Will is a good actor. He is NOT a good rapper. Well, I don't like his music anyway. And don't even get me started on his daughter's "singing."

And I also have to say that I love the theme song to Fresh Prince. It's a fun song, but is it good as an actual rap song? No. His rapping is like bubble gum rap haha. (Instead of bubble gum pop) I like will but he should stick to acting.

I like Will Smith, he's a great actor and I liked his music back in the day, BUT I think the old saying "I hope he keeps his day job" totally applies in this situation!!

All he did was rap over the original Kool & The Gang, "Summer Madness" without changing the tempo or pitch... this snippet sounds like just an intro to the remix... Jeff ain't that wack & lazy on the beats;)

Did he just say Geah like Mc Eiht? Anyway, what was good about the original was the female. Now it sounds like we're supposed to smoke dope to it.... Not that there's a problem with that but it's just slow and deep voiced.
