Ever since he started making music, Jaden Smith says a few of the most notable names in rap now are giving him the cold shoulder and won’t let him hang around them anymore. In fact, Smith blames the freeze out on his music finally making waves on the charts and in the industry.

The 19-year-old rapper may be feeling himself, but says the envy is real and called out Drake, Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino and Kanye West as three rap heavyweights who have shut him out of their circles, reports Billboard.

“[My relationship with Drake, Kanye, and Donald Glover has] really changed,” he explained. “I always felt like Little Homie before and that allowed me in all of their circles. But now that I’m on the charts next to them, I’m not really Little Homie anymore.”

Smith spoke with Complex about his experiences in the music industry following the debut of his album SYRE, which peaked on the Billboard 200 chart at number 24. He said that he has always been cool with the rap artists, but once his album spiked and hit 100 million streams on Spotify, things changed.

“It’s more like, ‘You can’t hang out with us anymore. We didn’t know you were making an album this whole time. We thought you were just Little Homie giving us free water and shit. You’re not really cool with us anymore,’” he added.

The younger Smith may need a sit down to discuss the ins and outs of the music game with his famous father Will Smith, who is heading back to the studio to drop more hits.
