Arsenio Hall was the first to introduce hip-hop to late night television with guest that included Will Smith (The Fresh Prince) and DJ Jazzy Jeff in the early 90s. But since Arsenio’s return to TV, he has not been able to book Will Smith despite his recent appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show.” Listen to this exclusive interview on “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show“ to hear him discuss how he had a hand in the early years of Will Smith’s career and his positive outlook on getting snubbed by him.
