Will Smith is Great!!!!

on 4/27/2005

I have always bought his Cd's. They are clean and make a person think. It is classic, original, and just enjoyable. I can't believe some of the lyrics he comes up with, and yes the truth hurts in some situations. But, overall he really out did himself. Now I'm not surprised that he feels stepped on or dissed by some of his peers, but I am surprise that he is letting it get to him. Will Smith keep up the good work.

Somewhere between the Fresh Prince TV-show persona and the 20-million-dollar movie paydays, the notion of Will Smith as a credible rapper was lost. However, from the days of HE'S THE D.J., I'M THE RAPPER, Smith's rhymes, while easily digestible, have always been substantive. On LOST AND FOUND, Smith's comic aim is still true, but he also takes on darker themes.
Here Smith isn't spouting opinions because he's been told he should have some; he passionately feels every word, and carefully explores his feelings. On "Mr. Niceguy," he pokes fun at his easygoing persona, noting that "sometimes y'all mistake nice for soft," before effortlessly eviscerating everyone who's taken a shot at Big Willy. "Ms. Holy Roller" brilliantly takes apart a self-righteous born-again friend, as Smith, a devout Christian, questions the need of some to force their religion down others' throats. The defining track of LOST AND FOUND comes on "Tell Me Why," a song set on the evening of 9/11/01. On this track, tears are streaming down his son's face, and Smith is at a loss to explain the unbelievably tragic and painful situation; it's a stirring, honest moment, told with grace and wisdom typical of the whole album.
