Taking it back to 1998
Will Smith performed a rare rendition of ‘Miami’ whilst attending a Suicide Squad party in Miami.
Warner Bros. were hosting the event in Miami which was celebrating the release of next week’s Suicide Squad. A new mural of the film was unveiled, with Smith later taking to the mic to perform a rendition of his 1998 song.
Will Smith was honoured at this year’s MTV Movie Awards. The actor and rapper recieved the Generation Award at the ceremony, with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announcing the honour on his Instagram page, writing: “Will Smith is our MTV Generation Award recipient.”
“When I first broke into Hollywood 15yrs ago, all I wanted to do was learn the business and put in the hard work to have a career like his. It’s a real privilege to honor you my friend.”
Last year, it was reported that Will Smith has recorded 30 new tracks. Speaking to Zane Lowe for Beats 1 Radio, the rapper and actor said that this fresh run of creativity has come in between shoots for the forthcoming Suicide Squad movie, and has thus far produced “six or seven [songs] that I really like”.
“I have so many things I want to say, and I’m struggling to say them in a way that fit the flavor of music I tend to like,” added Smith. “I’m from the era where it’s 16 bars and hook, 16 bars and hook, bridge, hook, and out.”
