Will Smith is making a musical comeback, and there's no way he's keeping it a secret.

The Hollywood star dropped in on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote his new film, Focus. But, naturally, he used the occasion to bust out a rap — his classic DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince track "Summertime" from 1991.

He's been getting back into the groove of late whilst doing the rounds of talk shows. On Ellen, he performed the theme for The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the '90s sitcom that kick-started his career, and unleashed "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" on Late Show with David Letterman last week. And then there was that rendition of "It Takes Two" on The Tonight Show. Watch his performance of "Summertime" below.

Smith stuck around to take questions not just from Kimmel but from the so-called Wall of America. One of those queries came from none other than Jazzy Jeff, who dropped a clanger on his old pal. "Are there any former collaborators that you're looking to restart a relationship with?" After some umming and ahhing, Smith conceded: "I was going to call you, man." He then admitted: "This is awkward." And it was.
