Corden is a goob, but Jaden Smith and Seth Rogen improved last night’s ‘Late Late Show’ by roughly 10,000 percent.
Time’s list is inspiring AF.
ComplexCon is around the corner, and one of the acts we can't wait to see on the stage is the always unpredictable Jaden Smith. He's one of our 20 favorite artists under 20 years old, and even though he's been making music for years now, it feels like he's still only getting started. With that in mind, we hit the streets of New York to talk about Jaden Smith for the latest episode of Angelito in the Streets.
What do people think of Jaden's music? Can they tell the difference between a Jaden Smith tweet and a Confucius quote? Watch the video above to find out, and get your tickets to ComplexCon now to see Jaden and a bunch of other great artists perform.

It seems 2018 will be the year of Gucci Mane. The veteran rapper, who will be performing at ComplexCon in November, took to Twitter to proclaim he will be going “100 percent independent and dropping a mixtape every other day.” Yes, Gucci Mane has said that he will drop a new mixtape every other day in 2018. Which is, considering there are 365 days in a year, a very large amount.

Gucci, who was released from prison in May of 2016, has been putting in a ton of work and seems to have no plans of slowing down. Among his releases are two studio albums, Everybody Looking and The Return of East Atlanta Santa.
He also just released a fascinating memoir, co-written with Neil Martinez-Belkin, called The Autobiography of Gucci Mane. The book revealed a ton of interesting information about the influential rapper, from the history behind his name to the inspiration behind his hit “Lemonade.”
To date, Gucci has released an impressive ten studio albums. His eleventh, Mr. Davis, comes out Oct. 13 and boasts features from ASAP Rocky, Schoolboy Q, Big Sean, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Migos, Monica, Ty Dolla Sign, and others.

UPDATED 3:21 p.m. ET: It sounds like Drake might be out here diversifying his investments.
— Drake Direct (@DrakeDirect_) August 15, 2017
Images showing an advertisement for what looks like a restaurant/sports bar named Pick 6 with the OVO insignia over it have appeared in Toronto's financial district. Pick 6's location used to house the Houston Bar and Grill. There hasn't been an official announcement or confirmation from Drake or his camp that whatever that is opening will in fact be a restaurant. But, it does seem like it's a good guess.
This wouldn't be the first time Drake has been connected to the restaurant business. Back in 2015 Drake came up with the name for chef Susur Lee’s upscale comfort food eatery Fring's in Downtown Toronto. He even DJ'ed for the opening party, which was attended by high profile guests such as Serena Williams, Jaden Smith, and his mother Jada Pinkett.
Drake is also investing in the green tea company called MatchaBar. The company, which is partnering with Whole Foods for distribution, is having its ingredients sourced from a family farm in Nishio, Japan. Matcha is a type of green tea leaf that is finely ground into a powder and contains a decent-sized dose of caffeine.
Shortly after these rumors started taking off, a source close to the situation confirmed to Complex that claims of a new restaurant are simply not true.
