For the Smith family, entertainment is the trade. In the last year, Jaden Smith has made some impressive music, even winning over some skeptics of the celebrity son to Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith. Jaden is serious about his musical craft, evident on last year’s SYRE. In two days (June 8), Jaden is releasing SYRE: The Electric Album.
On that first installment, Jaden released “Breakfast.” The song showed the 19-year-old “comin’ from the crown” and making a bid to be the sharpest MC in the family (which also includes sister, Willow Smith). “Slum Village with the feeling, get a beat / Bet you I’ma kill it / You ain’t ready for the realest high / Suck it right between the ceiling / Look, my flow is sick as hell / I had to bail my baby out of jail / I’m doing me, and I do it well / You think I’m wack? Who are you to tell / All you hype boys silly / You a square like Piccadilly / I do not care how you feeling / I thought you knew I’m a villain / I don’t like it when these jokers lookin’ at me sideways / On a highway / ‘Cause you know, I’m ’bout to do it my way,” spit Jaden at the time, making the family proud.
