I yelled to the cabby "Yo, homes smell you later!"

The license plate said fresh, and had a dice in the mirror!

But how much did that bi-coastal cab ride cost?

$8,356.96


"We've all heard the classic tale: a young Prince from West Philadelphia (born and raised) takes a "rare" cab to his Auntie and Uncle's house in Bel-Air to claim his throne. But with a cab to the airport alone costing around $50, it's pretty hard to imagine how much a bi-coastal trip in a taxi would cost (and yes, we know that in the extended version of the song he talks about flying, but on TV he seemed to cab it all the way there). Thankfully, College Humor has put a number on it by looking up the route on a fare-finding site, finally putting to rest how much Will Smith spent getting to his palatial new home. Uncle Phil really is loaded!"
