Will Smith Had Secret Verse For Kanye West

(Radio.com) DJ Jazzy Jeff and the artist formerly known as the Fresh Prince, Will Smith, are on track to record new music and hit the road to spread fun and freshness to the world. But while fans await the new tracks, Jeff recently spoke about a Will verse that never saw the light of day.

"Will did a verse off of [Kanye West's] 'Clique' when it first came out," Jeff told Rolling Stone in a recent interview. "He rapped it for me and it was huge. And I looked at him and said, 'Why didn't you put that out?' And he just looked at me. I'm like, 'Wait, you wrote an incredible verse off of a really popular song. That is what they do! Just drop it!' But he just sat on it."

Despite the missed opportunity, fans of Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince will have a chance to hear more music from the duo soon. Smith told Zane Lowe earlier this week that the duo has plans to record new music and go on a world tour.

"Will's been recording," Jeff said, before going on to explain how technology makes the process more convenient. Read more here.
