  • Lyrics
  • This is based on the 1987 rap song by Kool Moe Dee called "Wild Wild West," where he equated his New York lifestyle to the old west (he had a notorious feud with LL Cool J). Kool Moe Dee was brought in to rap on the chorus of this.
  • This samples Stevie Wonder's 1976 song "I Wish." Stevie Wonder appears in the video.
  • The R&B group Dru Hill sings on this.
  • DJ Jazzy Jeff did the record scratching. He and Smith were a team in the late '80s; smith became a successful actor and Jazzy Jeff did very well as a record producer.
  • This was written for the 1999 movie of the same name, which was a big-budget production starring Smith, Salma Hayek and Kenneth Branagh. The music video, directed by Paul Hunter, featured the stars of the movie playing their characters and ran 7 minutes long. >>
