Will Smith Reminds His Son Jaden Of His Rap Lineage On The Remix Of “Icon”

Like father, like son.

Will Smith already delivered a hilarious parody of the music video for his son Jaden Smith’s 2017 hit “Icon,” but he’s not done just yet. He decided to drop his own verse on the Latin remix version of the song, which also features Nicky Jam. Will’s verse seeks to remind Jaden of his roots and his dad’s own skills on the mic.

On the track, Will reflects on Jaden’s iconic lineage:

Boy, you know why you was an icon living?
You was born from an icon living
Messed around and married me an icon living
Tequila, then we made some icon children

Soon after, he contemplates passing the baton to his son:

One day I'ma hand you all the icon billing
And bounce, I'ma be an icon chilling

Will even busts out some Spanish rapping to match Nicky Jam’s contribution to the track:

No quiero que me hables de fracaso
Tu pon lo que me quieres que yo arrasó

Will’s verse was first made available on his new YouTube channel before the full remix got a proper release on streaming services. It’s his second collaboration with Nicky Jam, following the release of the 2018 FIFA World Cup song “Live It Up” in late May. Will has been getting back into the music space, recently sharing a video of him working in the studio:

SYRE dropped on Nov. 17, 2017, and has proven to be a breakout moment for the younger Smith. “Icon” alone has earned over 66 million Spotify streams, with another 32 million for “Batman” and more than 15 million for the A$AP Rocky-assisted “Breakfast.” The album also features Raury, Pia Mia, and Smith’s younger sister Willow. “Icon” was certified Gold back in May.

Jaden previously sat down with Genius to break down “Icon” in an episode of Verified:
