Jaden Smith is continuing on his fall quest to release as much music as possible. After dropping the bizarre single "Blue Ocean" and the more solid "Trophy" last week, the son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith and brother to Willow released a new track yesterday (Oct. 6). Entitled "Fast," the new song is the first to receive a music video, and the young rapper/singer fittingly keeps things short, fast and to the point.

Pulling in a tougher side than previously heard on his other two recent releases "Blue Ocean" or "Trophy," Smith shows off a relaxed yet confident and rough side to his spitting skills on "Fast." And, yeah, he's getting pretty speedy with his raps too.

"Actually, I'm a catastrophe / Go to your school and they ask for me / I'm in your class making cash / And we fruity like passion / It's burning like ashes / We just had to make this ish happen / He rappin' again," Smith raps at the end of the song, showing off some impressive word play and a much better sense of flow than what we've previously heard from the 16-year-old Hollywood son.

It's starting to become clear why the likes of Childish Gambino are championing this youngster.

For the 1:14 music video, Smith took to the streets and a parking garage, showing off a gritty side to his personality and music making. He's a little chaotic in his movements, even doing a barrel roll at one point next to a car, but it fits with the quick pace of his raps and this song... because it's all over as soon as it starts.
