And just when you thought artists had sampled the crap out of Foster The People and skate rap had peaked with Odd Future’s Supreme-clad antics, out comes Jaden Smith with bazooka rhymes and a posse full of babes and pro skaters shredding through LA’s legendary Skatelab Park.
Jaden Smith has released his own version of Pumped Up Kicks and I must admit, the kid isn’t bad…but I guess yeah…his dad IS Will Smith. His raps are his own and they’re on point, hovering between cheeky rebellion and laid back slyness delivered with a pile-driving flow.
Smith is set to release his first ever “cooltape” (aka mixtape, but different, according to Jaden), which is set to release in September.
Peep Jaden’s talent (or lackthereof) below.
