Will Smith - Will Smith In Rap Comeback?

Will Smith looks set to revive his rap career.

The actor-and-singer - whose last album, 'Lost and Found', was released in 2005 - is thought to be in line to begin work on a comeback album with producer La Mar 'Mars' Edwards, who is hoping to start up the Hollywood star's music career again.

Mars told XXLMag.com: "We're working on Will Smith, bringing him back. That's actually him on the other line right now."

The 42-year-old hunk - who shot to fame during his time in 1990s TV comedy 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' - has released four studio albums, including 1997 hit 'Big Willie Style', which featured US Billboard Hot 100 chart number one single 'Gettin' Jiggy Wit It'.

Since the release of his last album, Will - who has been married to actress Jada Pinkett Smith since 1997 and has two children with her, Jaden, 13, and 10-year-old daughter Willow, who are both music stars - has featured in major films including 'I Am Legend', 'Hancock' and 'Seven Pounds'.

Willow appears to have been inspired by her father's rap music interest as last year she explained Tupac - who was shot dead in 1996 - is her number one hip-hop star.

She said: "On my iPod I have Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Billy Idol, B.O.B. Eminem, Tupac - he was my mom's best friend."
