The 9th annual Roots Picnic has an absolutely stacked line-up this year with performances by Future, Usher (backed by The Roots), Leon Bridges, and more. Willow Smith hit the stage and brought out none other than her own dad as her special guest.
In the footage below, you can watch Willow and Will Smith rock out to his classic summer anthem, “Summertime.” They were joined by Jazzy Jeff.

The Fresh Prince and his trusted DJ were in talks of embarking on a world tour later this summer. While Smith was mum on details, he confirmed that Jazzy Jeff would accompany him on the road. “I’m terrified,” he told Zane Lowe during an interview last October, adding, “I’m really ready, man, I got a whole lotta heart to share and I’m excited about getting it into my music.”
The tour would support Smith’s musical comeback. He appeared on Colombian dance group Bomba Estereo’s “Fiesta” remix, dropping his first verse in more than a decade. He’s been working with Kanye West, too, who has been encouraging him to get back into the studio. From the looks of it, the 47-year-old is cooking up another run in rap that may be dropping sooner than we’d think.
