After a long hiatus, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith, a.k.a. the Fresh Prince, reunited in 2017 for pair of concerts. The performances, held in Croatia and the U.K., brought the duo together after nearly two decades apart. Some behind-the-scenes footage has recently been shared, showing Jeff and Will rehearsing for their shows.
Watch the duo’s practice session above.
In related news, DJ Jazzy Jeff will be performing along with DJcity president Phenom at SUNBURN Pool Lounge at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego on Saturday, June 29.
Bomba Estereo has released a video for its “Fiesta” remix featuring Will Smith. The visuals feature Smith and the Colombian electronic band performing at an African-themed party.
When asked how the collaboration came about, Smith said: “I was in Colombia with Marc Anthony. He was listening to music and I heard the ‘fuego, fuego’ and I was like, ‘Yo, that joint is crazy . . . I need to be on that.'”
The “Fiesta” remix is apparently just the beginning of Smith’s musical comeback. The rapper told Beats 1’s Zane Lowe last week that he plans on touring with DJ Jazzy Jeff in 2016.

Last week’s release of Bomba Estereo’s "Fiesta" remix marked Will Smith’s first rap verse in more than a decade. It turns out that The Fresh Prince has more in store, though, including new music and a possible tour with DJ Jazzy Jeff.
Smith revealed his plans during a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 radio. “Jeff and I actually have never done a full tour,” Smith told Lowe. “So I’m looking this summer will be the first time we go out on a full world tour.”
Smith also said that he has recorded over two dozen new tracks. “I’m pretty much poppin’ in the studio every day and I’m looking for artists to collaborate with. I’ve probably recorded 30 songs. I have six or seven that I really like.”
