Smith performed his 1988 hit 'Brand New Funk' for his movie co-stars

Will Smith surprised the cast and crew of Suicide Squad with a performance of his 1988 hit ‘Brand New Funk’.

Smith took to the stage this weekend (April 12) at a party for the film’s cast. His rap was caught on camera by his co-star Jim Parrack, who posted his rap to instagram alongside the caption “Let em know Big Homey!!! Yo some folks forgot that this man is a Pioneer… But he ain’t forget shit…”

Watch the clip below.



Smith was confirmed as a member of the film’s cast in December. He will play Deadshot in the eagerly anticipated Warner Bros Pictures movie following a team of infamous DC Comics super-villains.

Last week (April 9) director David Ayer shared the first picture of the film’s cast, which includes Viola Davis, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jay Hernandez, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne, alongside Will Smith.

The only main cast member missing from the picture was Jared Leto, who will play the Joker. David Ayer rectified this by posting the first picture of Leto as the joker a day later (April 10). The film is due in August 2016.

Earlier this year, Will Smith revealed he had been collaborating with Kanye West on new material.


The rapper said in 2013 that West was going to help him make a return to music. Speaking at a London screening of his new film ‘Focus’ in February, Smith told reporters he was contemplating ending his 10-year hiatus.

“I went into the studio with Kanye. I’m thinking about it.”

“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.”

Will Smith last released an album in 2005 with fourth studio LP ‘Lost And Found’.
