It's finally here, the ultra dynamic album from Jaden Smith himself, full of deep thoughts and 808s.
An album full of amazing artists, hours of listening, and an explosion of sound that will take you on the roller coaster of yourself. While this album has been playing nonstop in our loft, I have really taken a liking to the vibe behind Jaden Smith's Icon track, in the middle of the album, and also the video he released for the track on the 17th.
This album is different, Jaden isn't fucking around and he is the icon he speaks about.
An excerpt from a NME article review about the album, "Alongside sister Willow Smith, his New Age thinking boils down to believing he can make the world a better place. The first step is ‘Syre’, Smith’s debut rap full-length, taking its title from one of his middle names. Upon release, he told Complex: “We’re just trying to get to that one world vision, where everybody can be in a world where there aren’t 16,000 children dying of malnutrition every day. That’s really what I want to accomplish, and that’s why I’m doing this.”
