"Cats" are mad jealous alright, lol.

It couldn't be the fact that the song is trash and Jaden Smith has said a ton of stupid shit which has made him the butt of people's jokes. Let's just look at a sample of his genius.....

I am not a Mayan, I'm a menace (menace)
It's wild, you can lie like a professor
I don't got the time to put you on the stretcher (stretcher)
I am here and I'm still flexin' (flex)
I am just an icon living

I'm still laughing at you using the word cats to describe people though, what are you a 60 year old jazz musician? I bet your white as fuck too. lol

It was the only thing that interested me from your statement. I have a good natural filter for stuff that isnít useful or progressive.

Edit: so just an old, pasty white guy, the photograph hadnít uploaded when I responded initially.

Well letís see..

Iím 50, just turned 50.
Iím 6í1 and can still dunk a regulation ball on a regulation basket.
I have a son whoís mother happens to be a black woman.
I grew up in Washington DC.
My picture is in my avatar, Iím of English and Irish ancestry
Iím a combat veteran, 3rd Infantry Division 85-92. Germany 6 years, Middle East I year.
My son is now 14, one of the best basketball players in America in his age group. Heís 6í3 and would very likely embarrass most good adult players
Iím a fan and student of hip hop. Did graffiti art for years and had a little breakdancing crew back in the day. Iíve been interested in the culture since the film Wild Style, like a lot of old ď cats ď it just continued throughout my life.
Iím an ex-convict. Did two years in state prison

I mean, you tell me how white I am. Iíve certainly had proximity to things in my life that are predominately black, and grew up in a diverse area. In the current vernacular white af suggests to me more of a type of behavior, than actually being physically really white. Based on this life, I found this song and video to be creative and dope. Not best ever, not the second coming, but legit, to where I would check for his music in the future.

I could actually respect this criticism and I partially agree. I actually thought the performance was leagues better than most of his peers in rap currently so we differ on that.

Pretty nonsensical lyrics overall, but hardly exceptionally bad - I'm not a fan of most modern rap, but this is actually somewhat decent. Flow is alright, beat is pretty good, what's the problem?

Now that's damn impressive. A 6'1" white dude dunking at all is rare in its own right - I'm one myself.

I agree that his peers are even worse, modern rap aint that good for me.

These rappers these days are just to, nice and well behaved, well the mainstream ones anyway.

I like me some fat boy action Bronson.

I first heard it when Lost in Vegas did their take on it. At first, I laughed, a lot, at how Jaden looked, and the whole Tesla in the background (couldn't he at least have gotten a Bugatti or something).

By the end of the song, though, I kinda dug it. Since then, I've listened to it a few more times and now I find it ultimately listenable.

I should listen to the rest of the album.

I got the sense that it was more like a costume with the gold and the grill. Like heíll probably look completely different in the next video.

Yup, wouldn't surprise me. Someone mentioned it earlier tongue in cheek but it wouldn't surprise me if Jaden came back with "ok, here's what I look like when I'm not doing a caricature thing..."

My opinion..

Dude is as manufatured as all the money in the world can get you.

He has zero originality which is basically the same for most of the patheon of mumble rap. The children of lil wayne and lil B are squandering the baton pass and intent on spouting off random cliches which end up being paraphrases of what the last hot mumble rapper said.

If this dude had actually bars against the sea of repetition emcees I would respect him but he ends up just blending in with the rest. His name alone is what gets him attention. He doesn't have enough tattoos drug references and money stacks to have made it any other way.

Guys and gals let's tone it down and keep it civil. Jaden Smith is a good looking dude but lets keep the discussion on topic please. Mods are active and watching to keep the experience good for all.

His voice is dismissable. But his production on the new album is pretty damn good. Now only if he was a better rapper.
