Cocky and brash, his songs come across as lightweight pop hop, which will probably be scoffed at by fans of popular hip hop. The lead off song "Here He Comes" borrows the original Spiderman theme, and speaks of his return to music.
"Fresh Prince was hot,
the movies killed him, wait, hold up, stop! You can rebuild him
lock him back in hip hop while Dude's not filming
shock by the film & the TV money, went from scenes with Uncle Phil
to scenes with Sonny, so hard to break free from a guaranteed 20
but its done, so come see the MC, honey! "
His lyrics repeatedly poke fun at popular hip hop artistes and he does a lot of complaining about the quality of music today:
Mr. Niceguy -
"Dissed by Eminem but did it bother him (yup)
But he classy Big Will just get another 20 mil

Will Smith has put out an album that I feel is warranted of a mature status. I mean this in the most positive terms.
We all know he was never a gangster MC from the very begining. Anyone one of us who actually appreciate this genre of music can attest to the fact that he was not a negative role model from the get-go! He has always been about the story telling and the party vibe (the family party vibe) in his music. That is what made him big with us. He was safe and still funky at the same time while groups like NWA was F***ing the police, as if they represented the reality of ALL blacks in the country! I know ALL of these crunked-up-gangsta-cussing rappers, and I make a DISTINCT and purposeful separation between the two, were boppin' thier high top fades and shaking their Jordache jean-wearing asses to his music back in the day. And a clown like Eminem (I call him Dre'-enim) (I also allude back to the COOPTING issue)has NO BUSINESS saying ANYTHING about a pioneer of this game!Read more ›
I am probably most impressed by how much Will still has to say. We have seen him come from a teen from the streets of Philly to emerge a superstar. Yet it seems that he has not forgotten where has has come from and that there are many still left behind, and that there is more to life than his cars, money, and women. I am particularly impressed by the track "Tell Me Why" (feat. Mary J. Blige). In a style somewhat reminiscent of Jadakiss' "Why," Will talks about telling his son about the 9/11 attacks and their aftermath, and then goes into asking God why "the bomb is always getting the last word," why "them priests have to act so ill," and so on. Honestly, I love the emotion that he flashes on this track and I personally find it to be a better effort than the aforementioned Jadakiss track.
Will also retains his comic sense on this album, jesting at those that have recently attacked him (ahem, Eminem, ahem). He still retains his class in responding to those that question his "street cred." In "I Wish I Would Have Made That" he says "Just ign'rnt, attacking, acting rough, I mean then would I be black enough? Oh wait, maybe Ill jack a truck, full of cigarettes, guns, and stuff.Read more ›
