”I never write verses with curses” — or choruses, either — raps Will Smith on Lost and Found, pointing up one reason why some hardcore hip-hoppers hate on him. But realizing that living large is the best revenge, Big Willie doesn’t waste too much time apologizing for his lack of crudeness. Whether recasting the Spider-Man theme as a rap tune (”Here He Comes”), poking fun at his own squeaky-clean image (”Mr. Niceguy”), or relating the tragic tale of a Fresh Prince-obsessed stalker (”Loretta”), Smith delivers a CD packed with the sort of undeniable pleasures only the most churlish thug could deny. Go ahead — get your jig on.
