Following in the footsteps of his father, 14-year-old Jaden Smith officially announces himself in the rap game with his debut mixtape, The Cool Cafe: Cool Tape Vol. 1. The ample 18-track project features both original music and covers of the likes of Foster The People and SBTRKT. It also contains his recent viral hit, “The Coolest,” which has been praised by both Tyler, The Creator and Chuck Inglish (two co-signs you do brag about to your buddies).
There’s not quite the catchy chart-dominating appeal his lil’ sis Willow possessed with her single you hate-to-love “Whip My Hair,” but there’s enough material to win over listeners who don’t mind their rap music with a pop flavor.
