VIDEO: Will Smith rapping in Dubai

Star grabs the mic for improv workout at Wyclef Jean gig – and we caught it on camera

Former Fugee Wyclef Jean stunned fans at a Dubai nightclub when he handed the mic out into the crowd… to be picked up by buddy and fellow rapper Will Smith.

In town for the second time in a month, the Hollywood star duly too took the mic, warming up with some impressive beat-boxing, climaxing with the chant ‘Will Smith! Wyclef! Rockin’ Dubai!’ – caught in the video below.

Now in full flow, Smith then unleashed a freestyle rap to the adoring crowd, caught on camera by Time Out’s Jenny Hewett in the video above.

Smith, 45, is clearly a fan of the emirate, stopping by for the second time since the beginning of 2014.

The Fresh Prince pulled a similar stunt on New Year’s Eve, leaping on the mic at Barasti midway through his former sparring partner Jazzy Jeff’s DJ set.

Smith then stuck around in the UAE for close to a week, celebrating his 16th wedding anniversary with wife Jada Pinkett Smith, marking close friend actor Tyrese Gibson’s 35th birthday with a party, and jumping out of a plane with R&B singer Maxwell at SkyDive Dubai.
