DJ Jazzy Jeff is looking forward to reuniting with Will Smith and is eyeing up a slot at Glastonbury Festival

DJ Jazzy Jeff wants to perform at Glastonbury with Will Smith.

The 51-year-old DJ and music producer is keen to resurrect their famous double act, DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, with the 48-year-old actor but is waiting for Will to set a date.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he said: "We had interest in Glastonbury last year, whenever the decision comes down, I'm there."

The 'Summertime' hitmaker insists the pair will definitely reunite but he says it has been delayed because of Will's hectic movie schedule.

He added: "The biggest part of us doing this [reuniting] is the clearing of the schedule. I tour about 180 days out of the year but he makes movies so it's more on his side of having to clear a schedule for us to be able to rehearse and go on the road.

"Sometimes it gets a little hard with him being one of the biggest movie stars in the world to free up his time. He absolutely positively wants to do this; the funny thing is, he made the announcement before he even told me."

And Jazzy Jeff is excited to head back to the studio but isn't sure he could capture the same "freedom" he felt three decades ago.

He shared: "I want us to make music and see what we come out with. The funny thing is when we were making music before, we didn't have kids or mortgages and careers and so many other things. How much will we be able to erase all of that stuff and go back?

"That's not just with him and I; it's something I think about with music today. I think of some of the old stuff I did and there's a level of freedom and I feel like I am much more accomplished, have a lot more equipment, many more resources [now]."

Jazzy Jeff performed at BASS Festival, Birmingham other acts set to perform during the two week arts event include Slick Rick, Rodney P, Stretch & Bobbito and DJ Semtex. Taking place from November 10th - 28th across various venues. Further info http://bass2016.co.uk/
