In the past few years, Jaden Smith has stepped out of his father’s shadow to become one of the most talented young artists of his generation. Even with a slew of well-received projects throughout the decade, it was 2017’s SYRE that really caught the culture’s attention — a 17-track project that saw Jaden holding his own alongside A$AP Rocky, Kevin Abstract, Pia Mia, Raury, and even his equally talented sister Willow. His follow-up to that project, 2019’s ERYS, continued that same momentum. Now, he’s currently working on his third studio LP, Cool Tape, Vol. 3, a continuation of his mixtapes series from 2012 and 2014, respectively.

Following the release of “Cabin Fever” comes a new single from the project titled “Rainbow Bap,” which is produced by Jaden, Trippy Summer Band, Josiah Bell, and OmArr. The track sees Jaden delivering some of his best bars to date:

“He was a lost boy with rhythm, heart broke, SYRE has risen, look at the stars, it’s all written, just hold the applause/

I’m just gettin’ started with it, it’s not hot enough in the kitchen, they sayin’ it’s lit, I guess I’m the one thinkin’ different/”

In addition to his own tunes, Jaden also recently joined Black Eyed Peas on the remix of their J Balvin collaboration “RITMO,” which is taken from the soundtrack for his father Will’s film Bad Boys For Life.
