Joyner Lucas paid tribute to his hero Will Smith in his latest music video, fittingly titled, "Will."

Ahead of the release of his upcoming album ADHD, the 31-year-old rapper dropped the visual for his new single, which pays homage to the legendary actor.

"I'm feelin' like Will (Hey)/I think I'm a prince, I'm feelin' myself (Buck, buck)/I'm loaded with bills, 'cause I wasn't blessed with no Uncle Phil (Woah)," Joyner raps as he transforms into a few of Will's iconic characters over the years, from films and shows such as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, I Am Legend, I, Robot, Wild Wild West, Shark Tale, The Pursuit of Happyness, and more.

Additionally in the song, Joyner raps: "Ain't nothin' worst than losin' your hero and couldn't say bye (Couldn't say bye)/And we never know just when it's our time, the legends are gone and we don't know why/So before they go, look here go a toast so give 'em a rose while they still alive (Buck)

The music video ends with a voice-over of Will reciting his famous "build a wall" speech as the words, "Thank you for helping me build my Wall. Sincerely, Joyner Lucas," appears on the screen.
