Let's clear this up once and for all. Will Smith, aka Fresh Prince, was a very good lyricist and rapepr. Period. Back in the day (late 80s), folks might've dissed Fresh Prince for being soft, compared to harder acts of the day. But absolutely no one would say that he couldn't rhyme. He certainly wasn't a battle MC, but a 17-18 year old Fresh Prince was very good at telling a funny little story over a beat. Later on, as Fresh Prince turned into Big Willie, he shifted lanes and stopped telling stories, just like every other comedic storyteller rapepr from that era. Instead, he used his acting fame and became a LL/Diddy type, rapping about love or how much money he was making. Yeah, it was dated, and yeah, it was wack skill-wise. And yeah, he had folks like Nas and Common doing ghost writing for him. But I can't think of very many rapeprs who were considered nice in the late 80s *and* were still putting out quality, commercially viable original lyrics 10-15 years later. In terms of longevity + record sales, you're talking LL, Dre, and maybe a few others in a very small fraternity. And, virtually everybody in the game that long hires ghostwriters anyway. So, don't judge Will's lyrical reputation based on his tired work at the end, any more than you'd judge Vince Carter's athleticism based on how he played last year for the Nets. Fresh Prince ain't the GOAT, but he's no bench warmer, either.
