Joyner Lucas pays tribute to Will Smith in video for “Will”

His much-delayed ‘ADHD’ album is out now.

Joyner Lucas has unveiled the video for “Will,” a cut off his freshly released album, ADHD.

In the four-minute clip, Lucas pays homage to Will Smith by transforming himself into some of the actor’s most iconic movie and TV characters, including Smith from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Jay from Men in Black. “I’m feelin’ like Will (Hey), I think I’m a prince, I’m feelin’ myself (Buck, buck) / I’m loaded with bills ’cause I wasn’t blessed with no Uncle Phil (Woah),” he raps at the top of the track.

In an Instagram response, Smith said that he was “humbled and honored” to have inspired Lucas. “That joint is crazy … I’ve loved what you’ve done. It’s creative,” the actor said. “I hope to meet you one day.”

“Will” appears on Lucas’ much-delayed sophomore album, ADHD, which is out now. The record was first teased back in 2018 and was due to drop in October that same year before it was put on hold.

The Massachusetts rapper cited label troubles as the reason for the project’s two-year delay. “There was a lot of business stuff that ended up happening with me transitioning off the label and becoming independent,” Lucas told Zane Lowe in an interview.

The follow-up to 2017’s 508-507-2209, ADHD collects 18 tracks and features contributions from Timbaland, Fabolous, Logic and Young Thug. It also includes the previously released singles “Lotto,” “Revenge,” “Broke and Stupid” and “Devil’s Work.”
