Will Smith Raps Fresh Prince Theme Song Live!

by at . Comments

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is back, if only for one video clip.

Appearing Saturday night on the BBC's The Graham Norton Show, Will Smith actually rapped the theme song of the show that made him a star.

Amazingly and awesomely, the ENTIRE audience joined in:

Smith is making the rounds right now for Men In Black 3, but told the talk show host that despite his enormously successful career since The Fresh Prince, it's still what he's best known and most beloved for across the world.

"Listen, every country in the world, that is what I am known for," said Smith, who made headlines last week for shoving a reporter on the red carpet in Moscow.

"No matter how big movies get, it's 'Fresh Prince' everywhere."

Seriously, though ... does anyone NOT know those lyrics?


Now, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I liked to take a minute
Just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town
called Bel Air In west Philadelphia born and raised On the playground was where I spent most of my
days Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
And all shootin some b-ball outside of the school When a couple of guys
Who were up to no good
Startin making trouble in my neighborhood I got in one little fight and my mom got scared She said 'You're movin' with your auntie and uncle
in Bel Air'
