We all know that 10-year-old singer Willow Smith has inherited some mad skills from dad Will Smith. And now it appears that the Whip My Hair singer will be following even closer in her dad’s footsteps when crafting her debut album – she’s working with Will’s former hip-hop partner DJ Jazzy Jeff, 25 years after he launched DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince with Will.
It all makes sense, since Willow recently admitted she’d love to record a new version of the successful hip hop duo’s 1988 hit single Parents Just Don’t Understand.
“There’s a possibility that I will… it’s a really great song,” Willow said of the rumored remake.
Rapper Skillz has been brought on board to write lyrics to Jeff’s beats and reveals he also has a history with Will. “Me and Jazzy Jeff are…working on some stuff for Willow Smith’s album. I worked with her dad on a few projects before so I have a relationship with him,” he said.
