We are SO not ready.

When I saw that Jaden Smith’s music had made it to Paste Magazine the other day, my heart kinda sunk to the floor. THIS KID IS EVERYWHERE NOW, OFFICIALLY.

If I forget all of my feelings about Jaden Smith, I can appreciate the song and lyrics. But now Jaden is reminding me of why I feel the way I feel about him, with a recent announcement regarding 2-3 unreleased rap albums that will, apparently, shut down the whole rap game until FOR-E-VER.
