Jaden Smith has had a uniquely artistic and charmed life since day one, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t put in work creatively to develop himself. Anyone paying attention knows he’s already shown promise as an emcee, and on his just-released first album SYRE, that promise is certainly affirmed. Is he done growing as an artist? Has he fully come into his own style? Maybe not all the way yet. But on tracks like “Ninety,” (below) he pulls from his influences and still carves out his own space in a powerful way.
Listen to more of the album SYRE below if you’re into that sort of thing.
