He may be the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but he’s also the king of keeping it real – and his latest post is no exception. The Hollywood royal just took to the ‘gram to give us an update on what he’s been up to lately. And from the looks of it? We’ve never related more.

As for what's next for the funny guy? We guess only time will tell... but we've got a feeling we'll be hearing about it on our Instagram feeds soon enough.
