Willard Carroll "Will" Smith Jr.

As a rapper, Smith is known for his "clean rap" style, refusing to use vulgar, violent, sexual and misogynistic lyrics that are found in many rap songs which Smith adopted after his grandmother found his lyric book when he was a teenager and wrote in the back that "Truly intelligent people do not have to use words like this to express themselves. Please show the world that you’re as smart as we think you are."

CareerEdit

In 1990, the struggling Smith was signed to a contract and had a sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air built around him.

As a solo artist, Smith is known for hits such as "Miami", "Gettin' Jiggy wit It", "Just the Two Of Us", "Men in Black", "Wild Wild West" and "Switch". As an actor, he has appeared in blockbuster hits such as the Men in Black film series, Independence Day, Enemy of the State, Bad Boys, Ali, Hitch, I Am Legend, The Pursuit of Happyness and Seven Pounds.
