Watch Will Smith Win Best Rap Solo Performance For "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" | GRAMMY Rewind

In his acceptance speech, he offers thanks to his family and "the jiggiest wife in the world, Jada Pinkett Smith."

Today, Sept. 25, we celebrate the birthday of the coolest dad—who else? Will Smith! For the latest episode of GRAMMY Rewind, we revisit the Fresh Prince's 1999 GRAMMY win for Best Rap Solo Performance for "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It." The classic '90s track is from his 1997 debut studio album, Big Willie Style, which also features "Miami" and GRAMMY winner "Men In Black," from the film of the same name.

In the below video, watch rappers Missy Elliott and Foxy Brown present the GRAMMY to Smith, who offers thanks to his family and "the jiggiest wife in the world, Jada Pinkett Smith." He dedicates the award to his eldest son, Trey Smith, joking that his teacher said Trey (then just six years old) could improve his rhyming skills.
