Will Smith offers his own take on the ChilledCow’s lofi hip-hop YouTube stream.
Taking a cue for ChilledCow‘s popular lofi hip-hop YouTube stream, Smith has created a stream of his own on his YouTube account. Titled “chill beats to quarantine to,” the hour-and-a-half long stream finds an illustrated drawing of a young Smith (in the image of his Fresh Prince of Bel-Air character) taking on the role of ChilledCow’s studying anime girl as he bobs his head to the music. The 40-track playlist features instrumentals from Guustavv, Jobii, Dylan Sitts, and others.
The stream has over a million views.
“That was a big regret for me too because I could never open up to interact with Pac,” Smith said.
“She just loved him. He was the image of perfection but she was with the Fresh Prince,” he added. “Even when we were in the room a couple times, I couldn’t speak to him. And he wasn’t going to speak to me if I wasn’t going to speak to him.”
“That was a huge regret of mine,” Smith continued. “I couldn’t handle it, you know? I was the soft rapper from Philly and he was Pac. I was deeply insecure and wasn’t man enough to handle that relationship.”
