Biography

Jaden Christopher Syre Smith (born July 8, 1998), also known mononymously as Jaden, is an American rapper, singer, and actor. 

 

He has received various accolades, including a Teen Choice Award, an MTV Movie Award, a BET Award, and a Young Artist Award, among nominations for a Grammy Award, two NAACP Image Awards, and an Empire Award.

 

His film debut was with his father Will Smith in the 2006 film The Pursuit of Happyness, and he again appeared with his father in the 2013 film After Earth. He also starred in the remake films The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008) and The Karate Kid (2010). 

 

Following a three-year hiatus Smith returned to acting in 2016, starring in the two-part Netflix original The Get Down and a voice-acting role in the Netflix original anime Neo Yokio.

 

Smith began his musical career alongside Canadian singer Justin Bieber when he was featured on the 2010 single "Never Say Never" from The Karate Kid. The song reached the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified 5× Platinum in the US. 

 

He later released multiple mixtapes including CTV2 (2014). Following a three-year work effort, he released his debut studio album, Syre (2017). Smith has since released the studio albums Erys (2019) and CTV3: Cool Tape Vol. 3 (2020).

 

 In 2022, he received a Grammy Award for Album of the Year nomination as a featured artist on Bieber's album Justice.

 

Jaden Christopher Syre Smith was born July 8, 1998, in Malibu, California, the son of actors Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith. He has an older half-brother, Trey Smith (born 1992), and a younger sister, Willow Smith (born 2000).

 

 Smith attended New Village Leadership Academy before being homeschooled by his parents. Growing up, Smith's celebrity status due to acting in films such as The Pursuit of Happyness and his parents both being acclaimed actors led to him being isolated from having a normal childhood, something he has spoken about at length. He took up skateboarding.

 

Smith and his siblings were youth ambassadors for Project Zambi, which provides assistance in conjunction with Hasbro for Zambian children orphaned by AIDS.
