LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Will Smith is preparing for a musical comeback, according to a new report.
Producer La Mar “Mars” Edwards confirmed he is working with “Big Willie” on a new record.
“We’re working on Will Smith, bringing him back,” the producer, who has worked with the Game and T.I. told hip hop magazine XXL. “That’s actually him on the other line right now. Snoop’s daughter, we just put out her first single. We’re doing the whole album. Mario wants me to do a mixtape with him, we’re working on that. I’m working on Ashanti. We’re just working on as much as possible.”
No further tidbits about Will’s return to the rap world were dropped.
Will’s last album, his fifth artist LP, “Lost and Found,” was released in 2005. Will’s big hits over the years included “Getting’ Jiggy Wit It,” “Miami” and “Parents Just Don’t Understand.”
The star is currently working on the next “Men In Black III,” which is due for release in 2012.
