How big is this story? Depends on what you think "working on" means in this context. Working on, as in "there are lots of tracks ready to go, we've got to narrow them down," or working on, as in "Sure, a comeback might be cool, maybe. I'll work on it." At any rate, according to Game producer Mars Edwards, Will Smith's working on an album, as are some kids actually born in the early '00s instead of just being popular then.
That's all we know, and it's about fifteen facts away from being able to even take a stance here. But still: Will Smith comeback! Musical comeback, rather, because he's still one of the most bankable actors we've got. (Men in Black 3 is supposed to exist sometime soon.) Will he have to cuss in his raps to sell records this far on? We'll find out.

In January 2008, Cahir left journalism to run in the Democratic primary in Pennsylvania's 5th Congressional District. site easton express times
"Our country has lost a great Marine, a family has lost a son and a husband, and I have lost a friend and colleague. Bill had to lobby the Marines to let him enlist at age 34, but he wouldn't take no for an answer. He was determined to serve his country in its hour of need, and he did so with honor and distinction.
