To celebrate the unveiling of his debut album, ADHD, Joyner Lucas paid homage to Will Smith with an awe-inspiring single and video, "Will." 

Everyone loves Will Smith, but Lucas reveres him so much that he decided to create an entire song and video centered around the 51-year-old's acting catalog.

Lucas embodies Smith's confidence as he traces the actor's growth from the '90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air all the way to 2019's Aladdin. 

Matching Smith's strut and colorful swag, Lucas calls out The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on the hook: "I'm feelin' like Will, I think I'm a prince, I'm feelin' myself / I'm loaded with bills 'cause I wasn't blessed with no Uncle Phil."

Moving through classics like Bad Boys, Men In Black, I, Robot, The Pursuit of Happyness and I Am Legend, Lucas doesn't miss a beat. He even hits on somewhat forgotten roles like Oscar from Shark Tale. 

The attention to detail is nothing short of impressive.

Lucas matches Smith's mustache in Men In Black, casts his own son for The Pursuit of Happyness like Smith did with his son, Jaden Smith, and even wears a red Moncler hoodie in the final sequence, alluding to Smith's recent partnership with the luxury brand.

In the final title screen, he reaffirms his appreciation for Smith with a quick message: "Thank you for helping me build my wall."

All of Lucas' hard work paid off as Smith shared a video capturing his genuine reaction. "Yo, that joint is crazy," he said. "Dude, I am humbled and honored."
