By now hip-hop heads are hip to the fact that 16-year-old Jaden Smith is actually a dope kid with some pretty serious rap potential. After dropping an unexpectedly ill track “Trophy” he followed that up with some more heat with “Fast”. As if that wasn’t enough Jaden goes and continues his musical streak by rapping over Pink Floyd. No, not a Pink Floyd sample. An actual Pink Floyd track. On his new cut “Melancholy” Jaden raps over Pink Floyd’s 1973 song “Breathe” and it works out for the kid. Jaden even delivers some hilarious self-deprecating bars: “Oh you rappin’ on this? I bet you thought that you would body this/ You messin’ up a classic, how you did with The Karate Kid“. That’s just awesome. Listen to the new Jaden Smith track after the jump.
