Jaden Smith continues to build up hype for his upcoming mixtape Cool Tape Vol. 2 by sharing yet another new track. "Melancholy" sees Smith rapping about his own fame and taking on all of his haters, because being the son of a huge movie star probably doesn't do much to boost your street cred. Smith's sister Willow contributes some backing vocals.

The track samples Pink Floyd's 1973 song "Breathe," though "sample" might actually be a bit generous, since all he does is simply rap along to the original song with only the slightest of alterations. It brings to mind an article from The Onion back in 1997, which you can check out right here.

You can check out the lyrics to "Melancholy" right here, as transcribed by Rap Genius:

I guess we just some melancholy souls
That's why we spit these melancholy flows
Wear these melancholy clothes
Bring this melancholy everywhere he goes
Everywhere he goes

[Verse 1]
Man you guys are just some rich kids
How dare you call yourself the misfits
Hope you get coals in your presents come Christmas
Man I'm sorry, I ain't eat today
Cause I didn't know what I should eat today
Full or hungry, don't know what the difference is
I just hope we work out all our differences
Cause I be flyin' where them pigeons is
I mean it's all opinion, but


[Verse 2]
And they tell me just to breathe
(Breathe, breathe in the air, don't be afraid to care)
Oh you rappin' on this? I bet you thought you'd body this
You messin' up a classic, how you did with The Karate Kid
Bro but what the heck was I to do?
Now I see why Pia didn't sign with you


[Verse 3]
But they tell me just to run
(Run, rabbit run, dig that hole, forget the Sun)
Oh you say you want some more?
Well your father paid for all of this
If I was rappin' like you I would help the world and call it quits
And I just rap at you anonymous
I hide behind my hate because I wish I had your confidence
But understand, my only option is
To go to school and try to be friends with all these obnoxious kids
I don't hate you, I'm jealous of how you got to live
I'm sittin' here in class and my teacher's about to pop a quiz
