Kanye West - Kanye West encouraging Will Smith to make music

Kanye West wants Will Smith to record new music.

The 35-year-old rapper is encouraging the 'After Earth' star - who released his last album 'Lost & Found' in 2005 - to get back into the recording studio.

The 44-year-old actor told HipHollywood.com: ''I've been messing around with Kanye. We went in the studio a couple times, so I might get the bug. I'm not going to do it unless I'm truly inspired, but Ye's been pushing me a little bit.''

Will gave an impromptu performance of his hit 'Summertime' on the 'Late Show With David Letterman' on Monday night (20.05.13).

The rapper turned actor revealed on the show that he isn't good at everything and he can't swim.

He said: ''I can't swim. In inner City Philadelphia [where he grew up], there's not a lot of swimming pools and I never actually learnt how to swim and I'm embarrassed about it.

''I'm not scared [of the water]. I get in the water but as long as my feet can touch the bottom, I'm good because I go in, jump up and get some air.''

The 'Men in Black 3' actor - who has son, Jaden, 14, and daughter Willow, 12, with wife Jada Pinkett Smith - claims he always ends up red-faced when he watches his kids in the pool, but insists being able to swim isn't a necessity of life.

He explained: ''They [Jaden and Willow] can swim because it was important to their mother that they learnt how to swim but you can get through life without that.''
