Stop the tracks … It’s confirmed … Will Smith is working on new music and prepping for a new world tour with Jazzy Jeff? Let the people rejoice!!!!

This is true folks, Smith confirmed during Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show on Monday that he has been “popping into the studio every day” and that he is trying to find his voice. “I have so many things that I want to say and I’m struggling with saying them in a way that fit the flavor of music that I tend to like,” he said. “I have a lot of young artists and young philosophers just trying to help me extract the idea from my mind and my heart.”

“I probably have 30 songs [recorded]. I have six or seven that I really, really like, that I’m trying to get the ideas to come out right,” Smith explained.

It’s worth noting that the actor told HipHollywood back in May 2013 that he “might get the bug” for more music. In fact, Will exclusively told us that he and Kanye were working on a little something. “I’ve been messing around with Kanye,” the actor said. “We went into the studio a couple of times. I might get the bug, I’m not going to do it unless I’m truly inspired. But Ye’s been pushing me a little bit.”

But the news didn’t stop there. The rapper went on to explain to Zane that he will be going on tour with his friend and old partner in crime, Jazzy Jeff, next summer. “I’m pretty certain I’m going on tour,” Smith said. “Jeff and I actually never have done a full tour. I was always on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, I was always either making a movie, so we’ve never actually done a full tour. So I’m looking this summer to be the first time that we go out on a full world tour.”

If the world tour comes to fruition, it will be DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s first world tour together. By the way, the duo’s last studio album was Code Red in 1993.

Smith’s announcement comes just one week after stepping back into the music scene with his collaboration with Colombian group Bomba Estéreo’s on a track called “Fiesta.” “Fiesta,” a song where Smith raps in Spanish and in English, was the actor’s first hit in a decade.

HipHollywood first broke the news two years ago that Smith

2016 will be a big year for Smith who not only will be trekking on a summer tour, but will be a strong contender for the 2016 award season. On Christmas day, Smith’s new film Concussion will hit theaters and the actor’s portrayal of neuropathologist Bennet Omalu, the man studied brain trauma as a factor in deaths of NFL players and who discovered chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a disease caused by repetitive brain injury, is already getting serious buzz.

And in case you were wondering, Will did confirm on Monday that Bad Boys 3 should be here “within the next 12 to 16 months.”

Nelly’s Rape Case Dropped By Prosecutors + T.I.’s Candid Response To The News



Just months after being accused of rape, Nelly is officially off the hook.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office declined to file charges against the St. Louis rapper after the alleged victim claimed she didn’t want to assist in the prosecution.

“Police responded to and investigated a sexual assault allegation involving Mr. Haynes,” a statement from the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office read. “However, within days of her initial report to police, the complainant, through her attorney, informed investigators from the Auburn police department that she did not wish to assist in prosecution or the investigation of Mr. Haynes.”

Nelly, we are sure, was thrilled by the outcome. But he wasn’t the only one. The rapper’s buddy T.I. announced his excitement over Instagram, writing: Now WHAT HAPPENS TO HER?!?!?! #KnewMyPatnaAintDoThatShit.” 

The ruling, however, doesn’t come as a surprise.

Shortly after the alleged incident, the victim’s lawyer, Karen Koehler, explained via her website that her 21-year-old client does not feel safe and will be going to authorities to end the investigation. “She is telling the Auburn Police Department and the King County Prosecutor’s Office to put a halt to the criminal investigation of Cornell Haynes, Jr. (aka “Nelly”),” Koehler wrote. “She will not testify further in a criminal proceeding against him.”

The letter continued, “She never wanted notoriety. She never wanted a dime from that man. She wants to go back to school and to graduate. And this she cannot do if she remains hidden in her room, crying her heart out.”

Nelly was arrested in October after allegedly forcing the woman to engage in sexual activity without a condom while on his tour bus in Washington.

Following the arrest, the St. Louis rapper, who is on tour with Florida Georgia Line, denied the accusations. “Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation. I am completely innocent,” he tweeted. “I am confident that once the facts are looked at , it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation.”

He added, “I do want to apologize to my loved ones for the embarrassment and for putting myself in a situation where I could be victimized by this false and defaming allegation.
