Because of who his dad is, Jaden Smith had access to A-list rappers like Drake and Kanye West when he was growing up
In an interview with Complex, the son of Will explains how he was their "little homie" for a while. But now that the 19-year-old has his own rap career, Jaden believes Drizzy and Ye ditched him because they view him as competition.
How have your friendships with people like Drake, Kanye, and Donald Glover influenced your own art?
It’s really changed. I always felt like Little Homie before and that allowed me in all of their circles. But now that I’m on the charts next to them, I’m not really Little Homie anymore.
So you’ve earned some acceptance?
No, it’s more like, “You can’t hang out with us anymore. We didn’t know you were making an album this whole time. We thought you were just Little Homie giving us free water and shit. You’re not really cool with us anymore.”
Do you really think Drake won't return Jaden's calls because he thinks the youngster is going to steal his tricks and pass him on the chart?
