It’s safe to say that a Will Smith and Kanye West collaboration was bound to happen after the two were caught on a holi-date together in Brazil two years ago. Although we’ve yet to actually hear any music from the pair, there’s still hope that a Fresh Prince/Mr. Fresh song will eventually happen.

During a recent interview with The Guardian while promoting his new film Focus in London, Will Smith revealed that he’s been “exploring” the idea of getting back into music and even hit the studio with Kanye a few months ago. Although he didn’t divulge any more information on this “top secret” meeting, Will did credit his son, Jaden, with helping him pick up the pen and pad again.

I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet but I’m exploring. I’m in a creative ceiling. My son tells me I have to write out the things I don’t like. I can’t write and stop, I have to keep going and going and write them out. I’ve never worked like that before but I think I might give that a shot.

Where Jazzy Jeff at, though?!

UPDATE (2/26): In a new interview with Hollywoodscoop, Will Smith reveals he’s recorded “seven or eight” songs with Kanye West. However, he maintains that “it’s not for certain, it’s just explorative.”
