Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince return in 2011
2 weeks ago Will Smith visited DJ Jazzy Jeff's studio and they worked on some new music. This is the first time they have collaborated since working on Will Smith's album, "Lost and Found" in 2004. According to XXLmag Jeff had the following to say about the collaboration:
“He came down like two weeks ago and was like, ‘Yo, I wanna get back into the studio, and we just knocked out some stuff,” Jeff told XXL. “I just think more than anything there is no set pattern, no set plan, but we just wanna go into the studio and see what we come out with. If I can get it back to the way we used to make music, you know, it used to be just me and him in the room. You don’t need no entourages and cameras and all of that and see what happens. He hasn’t decided exactly what he wants to do.”
Even though Will is one of the biggest movie stars in the world his heart is always with hip-hop.
“Will has never not wanted to do music,” Jeff shared. “When you’re pretty much the biggest movie star in the world, the movie people don’t want you to do music ’cause you ain’t making $50 million off of making music. From a financial perspective, movies is where it’s at. And it’s not like his heart is not in the movies, but he’s always wanted to do some level of music.”

Sony got worried by the test screenings of Hancock and forced Peter Berg into reshoots of the movie just weeks before it's released. The movie wrapped back in November 2007. As a result of this the world premiere in Australia on June 10 has been cancelled because the movie won't be ready. The world premiere will now be in France one week later.
