Nostalgia Washes Over the Internet Users as They Recall Will Smith’s Fun Hip-Hop Days From the ‘90S

Will Smith has created such a larger-than-life impact with his acting career that for the younger demographic, it is news that he was once an applauded hip-hop artist. Through his goosebumps-inducing performances in almost every project he associates himself with, Will Smith has proven to be one of the most shining examples of an ‘actor’. However, his decades-long music career was no short of glory either. He was The Fresh Prince during his rapper days. The stage name was not only a fancy title that Smith had chosen for himself but a mirror of his fun and family friendly lyrics.

His music guaranteed a breath of fresh air to fans then and continues to do so despite numerous years having passed by.

The Fresh Prince is superior to Will Smith?

Smith transitioned into the acting industry by playing an extravagant version of himself in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

This, for obvious reasons, was applauded by many at a time when hip-hop industry was being stereotyped as the genre with more curses and lesser words.

So when one fan on Twitter walked down the memory lane of Smith’s hip-hop career, others soon chimed in, resonating with the nostalgic feeling.

The sentiments are not much different in 2023, as a Twitter user reminisces of the fun songs Will Smith had brought to us.
