At this point, referring to Will Smith as a "rapper-actor" is a bit out of date, but the worldwide box-office superstar had no problem with his entrance music for his Late Show With David Letterman appearance on Wednesday night: "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It."

The Focus actor spontaneously decided to start rapping along to his 1997 hit, asking for a microphone after greeting the late-night host.

Though Letterman says he can't rap like Smith can, the actor told him, "You can, Dave! It's in you! There's a negro inside of you, Dave!" To which the host responded, "That's the best news I've had in years! I gotta go home and surprise the wife!"
