Career in Music
As a teenager, DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince started creating music, but kept the gangsta rap style, that groups such as N.W.A. emerged from the West Coast. The Fresh Prince recalled adolescent concerns in a clean, uncursed manner that Middle America found safe and amusing. The debut song of the pair, “GirlsAin’t Nothing but Trouble,” was successful in 1986. Their 1987 first album, Rock the House, made Smith a millionaire before the age of 18, and entered the Billboard Top 200. Early achievement pushed all notions out of Smith’s head about attending college.
Early on, Smith was reported to have denied an undergraduate degree by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) elite in Boston, but later, Smith dismantled the rumor when he told an interviewer: “My mom, who worked for the Philadelphia School Board, had a friend who was an MIT admission office. I had very high SAT scores, and they wanted black children, so I could have gotten in. But I didn’t want to go to college.”
In 1988, the popularity of DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince with the album “He’s The DJ, I’m The Rapper” continued. The album was awarded the first first Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance, including the radio friendly songs “Parents Just Don’t Understand,” “Brand New Funk” and “Nightmare on My Street.” In 1989, And In This Corner followed… the pair’s ascent to the prominence proceeded.
The first marriage of Will Smith to Sheree Zampino came to an end after three years. The former couple had Williard Smith III as their son. In 1997, once again, he tied the knot to actress Jada Pinkett. Both have two children – Jaden, born 1988, and Willow, a daughter born 2000.
Smith turned to performing within two years of producing great songs. NBC caught up in his fame and lured Smith into a comedy drama about a Philadelphian quick wit youngster who moves into the top-class Los Angeles neighborhood of Bel-Air along with his wealthy uncle and aunty. The program achieved great success and lasted from 1990-96 for six seasons.
Will Smith next featured in the epic Science Fiction Film Independence Day (1996), after emerging as an eye-catching talent in smaller parts such as Where the Day Takes You (1992) and Made in America (1993). Run by Roland Emmerich, Smith perfectly portrayed Captain Steven Hiller’s role.
Smith again won awards for his following picture, Men in Black (1997) and Enemy of State (1998), which bagged him the nomination for NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor. Smith performed in the biographical picture Ali in 2001. Based on the life of the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, the film was extremely well received at the box office by the reviewers. His first Oscar nomination to Best Actor was given to Smith, who tried the titular role.
Smith appears after showing his mettle in Ali in a series of sequences that took over his part in Men In Black II (2002) and Bad Boys II (2003). Both got a relatively tidy reaction at the box office, which did not generate the influence of their prequels. In 2005, Smith tried his luck in Andy Tennant’s Hitch with a Rom-com. The film was a hit, and Alex “Hitch” Hitchens, a renowned dating film, captured hearts all around the globe. Another big hit followed this tremendous triumph, The Pursuit of Happiness. The movie is a non-fictional tale, directed by Gabriele Muccino, about businessman Chris Gardner, who had battled to achieve success. This biographical film starring Will Smith’s son Jaden Smith is also the son of Chris Gardner, Christopher Jr. Smith was nominated for the Best Actor by the Academy Award and the Golden Globe.
In 2007, Smith appeared in I Am Legend, a remake of the well-received Charlton Heston movie Omega Man. He featured in films such as winter’s Tale (2014) and Suicide Squad (2016). His second and final release in 2016 is Collateral Beauty, an American film. Aladdin (2019), Gemini Man (2019), Spies In Disguise (2019) and Bad Boys in Life were among his other releases (2020).
