Jaden Smith “Goku” Music Video: Watch Rapper Go Super Saiyan
Jaden Smith is a man of many talents. On Monday (Dec. 3), the 20-year-old released his self-directed video for "Goku," which is inspired by Dragon Ball Z, an iconic anime that's inspired plenty of rappers over the years.
In the three-minute visual, which was shot shot in Tokyo's Akihabara district, Jaden is checking out his environment. As the video progresses, he becomes aware of his superpowers. During one scene, Jaden has bright yellow lights that emerge from his body in what is a clear reference to the Super Saiyans in DBZ. Towards the end, he becomes aware of how to control his power.
On the OmArr and Lexoskeleton-produced track, Jaden makes reference to DBZ's main character Goku, a saiyan warrior who is one of the most powerful on the entire show. On the heavily electronic song with an uptempo beat, Jaden shows off his effortless flow.
"Ballin' I feel like I'm Goku/Ayy, my credit card didn't go through/I'm ballin' I feel like I'm Goku/Goku, ballin' I feel like I'm Goku," he raps on the chorus.
This isn't the SYRE rapper's first time hitting the streets of Tokyo to shoot one of his visuals. Back in June, Jaden released his visual for "Ghost," which shows the young rapper in the streets of Japan. Throughout the video, Jaden is having a good time with his crew and hits a few dance moves.
Last month, Jaden dropped The Sunset Tapes: A Cool Tape Story. The 11-track project included tracks such as "A Calabasas Freestyle," "Syre in Abbey Road" and "Plastic."
