Will Smith appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night, to promote his upcoming movie Suicide Squad (hits theaters August 5).
As The Late Show was going to commercial break, Jon Batiste and Stay Human began playing “Summertime”, the rap classic from The Fresh Prince (Smith, of course) and DJ Jazzy Jeff. Well, after chatting in the background with Colbert for about 10 seconds, Smith decided to stop that convo and run over to sing “Summertime” himself.
This is pretty fantastic:
And you know you want to watch the original “Summertime” video after that:
“Summertime” reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts for Rap and R&B singles in 1991. Yep, 25 years ago. That will make you feel old.
