Will Smith is now on a promotional tour for his new book, WILL. National Geographic is marketing a series Smith is hosting called “Welcome to Earth” while Smith is on his book tour. The eight-part series is planned to premiere in early December. Smith is seen journeying to the farthest reaches of the globe in the series. “Welcome to Earth” will be broadcast on Disney’s National Geographic channel. Smith is also promoting “King Richard,” his latest picture, which is generating Oscar buzz for the twice-nominated actor.
Smith’s most recent book tour stop was in Chicago. The Chicago Theatre was packed with Fresh Prince admirers eager to hear stories from one of the world’s most successful entertainers.
Smith spent a lot of time talking about his relationships with his family. Many of his anecdotes revolved around his relationship with his father, whom he refers to as Daddy-O. Smith’s connection with his father was problematic because he was abusive and Smith regarded him as a hero.
Smith stressed the significance of telling his entire tale.
“If you haven’t suffered something, no one wants to hear s— from you,” Smith stated.
Smith’s mother, a teacher, wasn’t thrilled when he decided not to attend college in order to pursue his passion of being a rapper. He mentioned how vital it is to be around by people who are fanning the flames of your dreams since they are fragile.
DJ Jazzy Jeff, the other half of the first rap act to ever win a Grammy, appeared at the end of the performance and played a handful of the Fresh Prince’s classics. When singing “Summertime,” one of their most famous songs, Smith revealed that he created the song in Chicago and was inspired by the city’s splendor.
