Lord knows I was skeptic of the Smith kids but wow, Jaden Smith has converted me. His music is not pretentious at all. His lyrics is the heir to the Drakes, the Kendrick Lamars and the Frank Ocean. His production will definitely become better but seeing how his lyrics can wrap themselves around any beat, my guess is that this one is going to go far.
If you haven’t heard this before, you’ll be surprised by – a. flow b. his sense of word play (‘license’ – ‘light skin’) and c. emotional intelligence. Imagining that he is only a teen is shocking.
