Jaden recently opened up about how he got into hip-hope, saying, “I liked hip-hop before I saw You Got Served, but You Got Served is what got me into the culture of the dancing and the B-Boy steez of everything,” he told BET.

Jaden added, “Kids nowadays, they need to know where all this got started. They need to know how this all came about.”
