Jay Z and Will Smith Executive Producing Electronic Music Comedy W/ HBO

(AllHipHop News) Will Smith and Jay Z are on their third collaboration before they even released one song together. Today (January 22nd) it is being reported that Jay Z and Will Smith are once again working together as executive producers of an upcoming electronic music comedy show on HBO.

According to Variety, the half an hour comedy show, “Higher” is  being developed by UK DJ phenom Calvin Harris and will be based on the inner workings of the electronic music scene. Harris, whom grossed $46 million last year, ranked higher than his executive producer, Jay Z.

In addition to Smith and Jay Z, Jada Pinkett Smith, James Lassiter, Tyran Smith, Miguel Melendez, Mark Gillespie and Dean Wilson and Harris himself are also executive producing the upcoming comedy. This would mark Jay Z’s first attempt at working with a television show.

    The winningest n*gga in hip hop. Jigga stay on his grind. B*tch n*ggas and haters, fall back! This dude ain’t playing.

    • Sa Go

      after Puffy of course.

      • Black Jay

        Can’t front on Puff…. But as far as rappers go, Jigga and Dr. Dre killin’ it.

      • 84stickupkid

        Say b—h n—a to someone in the street and see how long u get away with it…all the riches in the world couldn’t get me to say somebody who talks about raping people is a winner…but I would be happy to call them the biggest loser.

      • GQ

        Bic*h ni99a, you been saying the same bullish*t for days now. Nobody cares about your opinion on anything. Go kill yaself hater.

      • Black Jay

        Cosign.

      • 84stickupkid

        U ran away from the debate…cosign that.

      • 84stickupkid

        Awww, you want to step in for your lil buddy who cant admit the facts…go listen to a skirt

      • GQ

        Go tend to yo dirty lil seeds

      • 84stickupkid

        …after you listen to a skirt

  • RapItUp

    Jay is definitely winning.. but COT DAMN, you saw the annual earnings of the “UK DJ Phenom” good laaaawd just from spinning records! Probably one of the best jobs ever; doing what you love, making the crowd hype, and making BANNNK

    • Sa Go

      Calvin Harris also creates music, he doesn’t just dj it 😉

      • RapItUp

        Bet, now that you mention it, I think I’ve seen his name a few times before actually. He’s like Tiesto, or Afrojack, something like that?

    • Black Jay

      Them electronic dudes (I still refuse to call them DJs) be getting money. I’ve checked out a few of their shows while kickin it in Brazil. They ain’t no joke about their parties and income.

      • Chris M. McDade

        A DJ is a DJ, whether you like them or not.

      • Black Jay

        Dude….. What the hell are you talking about? Stop looking for negativity when there isn’t any. You making yourself look dumb.

      • Chris M. McDade

        “Them electronic dudes (I still refuse to call them DJs)”

      • Black Jay

        Dude…. Once again…. English 101. What reason did I give for refusing to call them DJs? Did I give a reason? No. I didn’t. If I had come to you and said “I refuse to call those Electronic Dudes DJs because they are fake ass wannabes”, then you would have a point. But you don’t know the reason. You’re assuming. And you know the saying about people that assume. I refuse to call Black people “Negros”. Does it change their skin color? I refuse to call my dad “pop”. Is he still my father? I refuse to call hip hop “rap”. Is it still getting play on the radio? Does it mean anything? How the hell can a preference be negative? Try again. Stop looking for negativity when there is none. Grow up.

    Executive producing only means they finance it, most time EP’s don’t even show up on set or anything

    • Devon Murray

      Working in the film industry.. EP’s only show up to eat craft services, shake a few hands then they out…

    Two of the most powerful men in hiphop working together. Why can’t they work together on an album though?

    • Sean Taylor
