New SOTBMusic: Jaden Smith Feels Super Saiyan on "GOKU"

Comparing yourself to one of the most-recognizable characters this side of Mickey Mouse is something that deserves an equally boisterous track. You've either got to come hard or don't come at all and keep it an inside joke or something. Enter Jaden Smith with "GOKU," a kind of EDM-meets-lyrical-miracle-vibe track which features Smith flexing his vocab while still delivering the turn-up energy needed for something like this.

Quite frankly, it's not his best work thus far. I'm still partial to some of his work on his last project(s), mainly because they're the ones that made me realize "oh crap, Jaden Smith has some fire." However, it's a solid track that showcases Smith's growth as an artist and a rapper. He's not tied down by one genre, but he has his roots firmly entrenched in hip-hop. And it shows throughout this track, from switched flows to some quotables peppered throughout the track. This is all wrapped around the central theme of growing stronger by the hour, like Goku. Check out the track below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
