Will Smith Details How He Became the 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'

In my mind, I wasn't trying to avoid taxes, I was just like "Ah, damn, they need their money"'.

Smith has taken social media by storm over the past year, recently launching a YouTube series called "Story Time", in which he narrates significant or otherwise humorous life events.

The rapper shot to fame as rapper The Fresh Prince with childhood friend DJ Jazzy Jeff in 1987 with their debut album, Rock The House, and their follow-up album He's The DJ, I'm The Rapper went triple-platinum in 1989.

She convinced him to go to the Arsenio Hall Show where he met the "real-life Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" Benny Medina who pitched the comedy series to him and told him how he was the flawless character to play his role.

But listening to his girlfriend led him to Quincy Jones' home who asked him to audition on the spot.

But the defence ministry said the army had repulsed the attack, and "the security forces are now chasing the enemy". Mohammad Sarwar Osmani, a lawmaker form Farah province, also confirmed the Taliban attacks.

"[Jones] mentioned, 'Hey, man, I noticed your music movies, I like you what're doing, I like what you're doing. I was broke. Being famous and broke is a sh**** combination", Smith said Smith said his then-girlfriend suggested him to hang out around Paramount studios in hopes of meeting someone influential. Smith told Jones his rap name, "The Fresh Prince", which became the root of the title for the show.

Jones requested Smith to review the script for a couple of minutes earlier than having him audition, however the Males in Black actor protested saying he wasn't able to audition for the half.

Speaking of the impromptu audition Will said: 'I was like fuck it then.

And it is fair to say that it all kicked off thanks to Smith landing the leading role in what would go on to become of the most-loved sitcoms of the last few decades, The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.

"He had been consuming, it was apparent", Smith mentioned, smiling. The rapper's next album "flopped" and he was left broke and at the mercy of the IRS. Benny Medina is the real-life Fresh Prince of Bel Air'. "No paralysis, do evaluation!' Like how did he make Thriller like this?" "The moral of the story is always say yes".
