Will Smith Says He’s Recording With Kanye West

Jaden told him to do it.

February 12, 2015

Kanye West seems to be accruing a diverse group of contributors and collaborators: Lorde, Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift—and, it seems, he's clocked some studio time with Will Smith, too. The 46-year-old rapper-slash-actor hinted during an interview with the Guardian that he's been dabbling with getting back into music—more specifically, he says that he's been working with the great 'Ye. "I went into the studio with Kanye. I'm thinking about it. I'm exploring," Big Willie says. "I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet but I'm exploring. I'm in a creative ceiling. 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." Wouldn't be mad to hear Kanye's brought in Jaden and Willow, too.
