Will Smith needs no introduction, so I’m not going to give him one. He’s too much of a cultural hero for his life to be simplified into mere words.
His existence graced this world 50 years ago today, and we, as mortals, are forever indebted to him.
So, to celebrate, let’s whip out one of pop’s most significant tracks in recent years. ‘Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It’, produced by Poke & Tone, won Smith his Grammy for Best Rap Solo Performance. It also led to ‘jiggy’ becoming a part of everyday language, so you could say that Smith is our Shakespeare.
Here it is in all its glory!
