In his big interview with David Letterman, which was unfortunately recorded before he went crazy on Chris Rock, Will Smith spoke about his rap career.

According to Will, it always annoyed him that he was considered soft.

“That was really our major distinguishing quality at the time,” he said. “It was comedy, it was punchlines, it was fun. We stood out in a really good way. We sort of had our own lane … it was always that I was soft. I hated that, being called soft.”

One of the reasons folks dismissed Smith was that he never cursed.

According to Will, he kept it G-rated because his grandmother had told him he was so talented that he didn't need to curse to stand out.

"That was the reason I never cursed in any of my records," he revealed.
