Jaden Smith is a true artist.
That time he wore a batsuit to the Kimye wedding? Artistry. That time he wore a dress to prom? Artistry. That time he said school was for losers? Pure, unadulterated artistry.
For those who are still a little unsure about his creative cred, just know that he is also a bona fide rapper. Take Exhibit A, his new rap song. Taking after the likes of Drake and Kendrick Lamar, Jaden dropped the new track and the accompanying video without prior warning, announcing it all on his Twitter page. As can be expected from the person who once spoke the words, "It's proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe," the music video is really...something. There aren't a whole lot of other words to describe it, besides very very Jaden Smith-y.
Watch the video for yourself below, and then see why the track is so very Jaden.
