"I just spoke with him last night," Smith wrote. "Today, Jada & I mourn with all of you the loss of a beautiful poet, a true inspiration, and one of the most magnificent artists to ever grace this Earth."
Coincidentally, when MTV played a marathon of Prince music videos, at one point their search algorithm messed up, playing a Will Smith as "Fresh Prince" video along the way. It sounds like that's something that Smith and Prince would have had a laugh about together.
