Nearly two months after Jaden Smith released SYRE, TIDAL have revealed a brand new documentary about the rapper. In Icon Living, the 19 year-old musician, label boss, and new-age guru discusses the making of his debut album. The documentary also features footage from his 2017 performance with fellow members of his MSFTs label collective at The Roxy in Los Angeles.
“Every artist has a different explanation for why they make music or why they do it,” he explains. “For me, MSFTs is a collective of individuals that are dedicated to raising the consciousness of humanity through art and science. Art is a hard thing to explain. For us to really get closer to it, we’re going to have to make more.”
Smith’s next project will be ERYS, along with a full acapella bonus album. Both are expected to arrive this year.
