On the 25th of March, the rapper, Joyner Lucas, dropped a music video for his new song called “Will,” in which he pays homage to the early stages of Will Smith’s career. The video explores much of the actor’s history in the entertainment industry, including his time in Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Men in Black, and Bad Boys.
In addition to the entire theme of the video revolving around the actor’s persona, Joyner shouts out to him by saying that Will was his “idol” and he doesn’t even know it. On the 25th of March, Smith shared a segment of the music video on Instagram along with a caption explaining how it was always his goal to inspire others.
Smith also added that he was looking forward to meeting the rapper someday. There’s no question that Lucas has mastered the art of using creative themes to attract attention to his music.
Lucas has sparked waves in the hip-hop community for a few of his songs, including “I’m Not Racist,” and also his collaboration with Eminem on his 2nd last record, Kamikaze.
In response to Smith’s comment, Lucas wrote on his social media that he was going to “take a cold shower and wake up” because he felt like he was dreaming. It’s not surprising that Joyner has found inspiration from Will Smith, who is easily one of the most successful black actors in the history of the industry.
His family has gone on to success as well, including Jada Pinkett Smith, who has her own series on Facebook, Red Table Talk, which plays a significant role in the culture. On the 19th of March, 2020, Ashley Mitchell reported on a new episode in which Jaden was missing because he wanted to practice social distancing.
Recently, Red Table Talk had on Dr. Michael Osterholm, who recently appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
Additionally, Will shared why it was so important for them and the rest of society to do what authorities have suggested and practice social distancing. Smith explained that there are only so many available respirators in a hospital, and it’s important to keep them for the people who need them the most.
