Will Smith still has much love for “Miami.” The Philly native brought back the classic ’90s jam, which pays tribute to the South Florida city, for a dope live performance.
He returned to the Sunshine State to promote his new movie Suicide Squad alongside co-stars Margo Robbie (who plays Harley Quinn), Karen Fukuhara (who plays Katana), Jay Hernandez (who plays El Diablo), and director David Aye. As the DC crew made their way to the stage, Smith got the crowd hype with a full-on performance that can be seen at a better angle here:
Thank God I listened to my best friend, @cmmiller93, when he said he wasn’t moving from the barrier in front of the stage, because I got UP CLOSE with the cast of @suicidesquadmovie! I saw @karenfukuhara, @jayhernandez001, @margotrobbie, Director David Ayer and, of course, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, himself, MR. WILL SMITH! Thank you, guys, for coming out and showing your fans some love! What an AWESOME day! #SuicideSquad #DCComics #DCFilms #Wynwood #InSquadWeTrust #SKWAD #WillSmith #Deadshot #MargotRobbie #HarleyQuinn #KarenFukuhara #Katana #JayHernandez #Diablo #DavidAyer

The stage also featured a massive mural as seen here:
This beautiful mural was revealed, today, in Wynwood, and was created by two very talented artists, Amanda Valdes & Didi Rok, in honor of the upcoming DC Comics blockbuster, Suicide Squad! What an amazing block party hosted by the cast of the film and Warner Bros! Thank you all for choosing Miami as your latest stop on your promotional tour! Truly a blast! #SuicideSquad #DCComics #DCFilms #Wynwood #InSquadWeTrust #SKWAD

Despite its immense popularity, the song (which appears on the 1997 album Big Willie Style in case you feel like revisiting) only made it to No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
With a movie due out soon, Smith is also staging a musical comeback with collab partner DJ Jazzy Jeff. They already hopped back in the studio and are reportedly setting up some live shows over the summer. “We’ve recorded about 25 songs and have four or five I actually like. Jeff and I will be back here [in the U.K.] this summer to do shows, real shows,” he said, according to the Inquisitor.
In the meantime, you can catch him on the big screen as Deadshot when Suicide Squad arrives in theaters on Aug. 5. The film also stars Viola Davis, Jared Leto, and MADtv alum Ike Barinholtz.
