Before turning 30, rapper, actor, and entertainer Will Smith had done more in three separate fields than many will do in their entire lifetimes.As the rapping half of the duo DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince in his teens, Smith helped take hip-hop onto the charts and into the suburbs.When he starred in the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, he created one of the most popular TV sitcoms of the '90s.Then, in the challenge of his career, he made the hugely successful transition from the small screen to the big screen, starring in such blockbuster movies as Independence Day, Men in Black, Enemy of the State, and Wild, Wild West, while continuing to churn out chart-busting music, with songs like "Getting' Jiggy Wit it" and "Just the Two of Us." Acclaimed author Chris Nickson gets into the head, heart, and soul of one of Hollywood's most sought-after entertainers, from his feelings about rap and stardom, to life with histwo sons and lovely leading lady Jada Pinkett--and finds out how he made it from Philadelphia to the Hollywood Hills in a biography as fresh and fascinating as the man himself.
