I just want to pitch Jaden Smith’s little adolescent cheeks! Have you seen his new video “Hello?” It has an old school feel to it. The vibe of it is sort of early 90s-like, the era that gave his daddy Will Smith (then known as the Fresh Prince) some of his biggest hits.
The simple black and white video features the 14-year-old walking around the streets of New York, rapping about girls, his sister getting braces and just being a kid.
“I’m teen/I’m still keeping it clean/I’m having meetings with deans/You see me up on the screen”
Some good ol’ age-appropriate adorableness. If I were a little girl, a poster of Jaden would be on my wall. If I were a parent, my child could listen to this and I’d be perfectly fine with it. And he’s just so darn cute.
Since the Smith family is also all about business, Jaden is clad in a sweatshirt from his own clothing line MSFTS in the video and at the end of the short clip, the MSFTS website is clearly displayed in case you want to cop that sweatshirt I suppose.
Definitely check out the clip below and tell me your thoughts in the comments. Are you feeling Jaden’s new song?
