He is the only actor in world cinema whose movies have grossed over 100 $ for consecutive 8 times as well as the only actor to have eight consecutive films open at #1 on the domestic box office as a Lead Actor. Its never easy for any actor to deliver back to back hits like he has done. he is the most bankable star of Hollywood today. Smith has been nominated for four Golden Globes, two Academy Awards, and has won multiple Grammys. Smith rose to fame as a rapper under the name The Fresh Prince in the late 1980s and his Role in the television series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Smith started his career titled as The Fresh Prince, with his childhood friend Jeffrey "DJ Jazzy Jeff" Townes as turntablist and producer as well as Ready Rock C (Clarence Holmes) as the human beat box. The trio was known for performing humorous, radio-friendly songs, most notably "Parents Just Don't Understand" and "summertime." They gained critical acclaim for winning the first ever Grammy in the Rap category (1988). Smith lived as a free bird and spent money freely during his early career and underpaid his income taxes. The Internal Revenue Service eventually assessed a $2.8 million tax debt against Smith, took many of his possessions, and garnished his income.
Smith was nearly bankrupt in 1990 when the NBC television network signed him to a contract and built a TV Show, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, around him. The show was successful and launched his acting career. Smith set himself the goal of becoming "'the biggest movie star in the world'," studying box office successes' common characteristics. Although he made a notable dramatic film debut in Six Degrees of Separation while still appearing in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Smith's film career took off with his role in the buddy cop action film Bad Boys (1995) along with co-star Martin Lawrence. After that movie there was no looking back for him.
Even President Barack Obama stated that if a film were to ever be made about his life, he would have Smith play his part, because "he has the ears". Obama stated that the two have discussed a possibility of a film based on the 2008 election.
