Trae's Son Lil Jared Joins tha Family Business
This iced-out lil' playa is Lil Jared, 8-year-old son of Houston rapper and Assholes by Nature ringleader Trae tha Truth. By his own admission, Jared has been "wreckin' the mic ever since I was two," and even has his own adorable little Assholes by Nature chain. Although he's already appeared in several of his dad's videos, Lil Jared makes his official mic debut in "Ballin' Smashin'," which debuted yesterday on worldstarhiphop.com . He can spit pretty well - you know, for an 8-year-old - and he certainly knows all his Houston rap catchphrases ("swang," "sittin' sideways," etc.).
Rocks Off could probably make a joke or two about how Jared's lyrical skills have already surpassed his dad's nemesis, Mike Jones, but what kind of example would that set for his lil' classmates? We would like to see him and Master P's son Lil Romeo throw down in a playground MC battle for the ages, though.
