Will Smith was on BBC's "The Graham Norton Show" this week taking it back...all the way back to the (apparently) world-famous rap that opens the "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."

Smith led the British crowd in the rap, while the X Factor's Gary Barlow backed him up. (The song starts at about the 1:50-minute mark in the video above.)

Smith told Norton, "[In] every country in the world, that is the thing that I am most known for. No matter how big the movies get, it's the 'Fresh Prince' everywhere." Does that bother him? Not in the slightest: "As long as they're screaming 'Will', I'm cool."

Smith has been on a worldwide tour (dodging kissy reporters) to promote the third Men in Black movie.
