VIDEO: JADEN SMITH’S “PUMPED UP KICKS (LIKE ME)”
Jaden Smith, 14, certainly isn’t riding the coattails of mega star parents Will and Jada Smith. The young actor turned rapper’s remix “Pumped Up Kicks (Like Me)” samples the Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks,” but his lyrics and personal touches make it unquestionably “Jaden.”
In the black and white video, Jaden shows off some of his amateur skate moves and sits back and watches some of the pros (Theotis Beasley, Dakota Roche Alex Miller, and Chris Cole) trick out LA’s Skatelab Park.
Check out “Pumped Up Kick (Like Me)” below and stay tuned for Jaden’s upcoming mixtape, which he is calling “cooltape,” set to release in September.
