Hollywood superstar Will Smith is set to make his rap comeback with his first new album in six years.

The Men In Black actor began his career as The Fresh Prince, teaming up with his childhood pal Jeffrey Townes to form hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince.

He went on to land his own TV sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and has since become one of Hollywood's most in-demand movie stars.

However, according to music producer La Mar 'Mars' Edwards, Smith is heading back into the studio to record a follow up to 2005's Lost and Found.

They have remained close over the years and Jazzy Jeff recently visited Smith on the set of his new movie, Men in Black III, in New York - and the conversation turned to potential performance opportunities.

Amy Poehler & Aziz Ansari Talk About The New Season Of 'Parks And Recreation'

September 16th, 2009 10:02am EDT
Parks & Recreation
Eternally optimistic small town park director Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) spent the first season of NBC's "Parks and Recreation" working to transform a vast garbage-filled trench known as "the pit" into a family-friendly green space. Much like Leslie's steering committee, "Parks" has its own work ahead if it hopes to avoid falling into its own pit of TV oblivion.

"We're lucky that we had a little [six episode] first season so we're still getting into the groove," says Poehler. "I think like any new show you have to get things up and running and figure out where the bathrooms are. It's a c...

So, it comes as no surprise that I was absolutely thrilled to have this long conversation with the series star, Josh Radnor, who plays the lead character, Ted Mosby.

Josh Radnor and I discuss New York living, the awesomeness of co-star Neil Patrick Harris and the back story behind Neil's People Magazine interview when he decided to come ...

Rappers And Their Sidekicks

January 7th, 2009 10:08am EST
Birdman
Ever wondered why rappers need sidekicks to help them rap a song? Why do they need that extra guy hanging around in the background doing nothing of great significance? Sometimes these side guys can actually rap themselves and end up with their own solo albums, but eventually, they all seem to fail miserably and disappear. We've all seen it happen.

Mase, Loon, and Farnsworth Bentley (also known as Fonzworth Bentley)

P. Diddy, for instance, has had his share of sidekicks from Mase to Loon to Farnsworth Bentley. Mase is a perfect example of a side guy who blossomed while P. Diddy wa...
