Remember those rumors a few weeks ago that Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff were going to tour together soon? You probably laughed those rumors off, but your laughter was unfounded--Smith has confirmed that the duo will indeed hit the road together.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday (Nov. 5), Smith confirmed that he and his longtime DJ would be hitting the road for a proper tour, making up for lost time due to a busy schedule in the early '90s.

"We never actually had a chance to go out and do a full tour," Smith said. "So, we released our first record in 1986 ... Girls Ain't Nothing But Trouble was our first record, but by 1990 I was already on The Fresh Prince. So, in that time, we just we were getting started and I never actually had a chance to go on tour, so I really want to get out there and do it for real."

The 47-year-old recently returned to music by appearing on a remix of Bomba Estereo's "Fiesta." He will perform with the group at the Latin Grammys on Nov. 19.
