Will Smith - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography (1594 words)
He is one of few people who have enjoyed huge success in the three major entertainment media in the United States: film, television, and the music industry.
His first two solo albums went platinum, but his third, on Columbia Records, was a sales disappointment compared to his past efforts, and after a quick Greatest Hits release that was almost not advertised at all, he was dropped by the label.
He has been consistently listed in Fortune Magazine's "Richest 40" list of the forty wealthiest Americans under the age of 40.
