Will Smith Gets 'Jiggy Wit It' on David Letterman's 'Late Show'

The actor excites the crowd with the impromptu performance of his 1997 hit days after confirming he's been working on new music with Kanye West.

AceShowbiz - %cWill Smith% recently said that he'd been working with %cKanye West% as he considered to return to the music scene. While fans are still waiting for something to come out of the two's studio sessions, the actor showed off the rapping skills that made him famous in the '80s when he appeared on "Late Show with David Letterman" on Wednesday night, February 18.

The intro of his 1997 hit "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" kicked in as Smith walked onto the stage following an introduction from the show's host %cDavid Letterman%. He then grabbed a microphone and started spitting his bars while being backed by %cPaul Shaffer% and the "Late Show" band.

Smith confirmed his plan to put out new music at a premiere of his newest film "Focus" earlier this month. "I think I may have gotten inspired again," said the Fresh Prince, who put out his latest album "Lost and Found" in 2005. "I went into the studio a few months ago with Kanye. Sorta top secret so, maybe."

Although he already hit the studio with the "Bound 2" rapper several times before, Smith hinted that his new songs could really come this time. "I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet but I'm exploring. I'm in a creative ceiling," he continued before adding that his son %cJaden Smith% gave him some advice as well.

"My son tells me I have to write out the things I don't like. I can't write and stop, I have to keep going and going and write them out. I've never worked like that before but I think I might give that a shot," he explained.
