Jaden is a uniquely talented force, and there is no debating that statement after the release of CTV3: Cool Tape Vol. 3. He has the cool aura and confidence that make you gravitate toward him, take a dive into his music, and appreciate every aspect of it. This album is more on the alternative side of the alternative hip-hop genre, and almost has a flower child type of feel to it. He spends much more time singing than in the past (and that is a great decision on his part), but it contributes to the euphoric 70’s vibe that emanates throughout. At its core, this album is about love, and the love that he is projecting outward, repeating “You’re my everything” and “Let’s go diving in the deep end. I want to follow you deeper”. It’s hard to back up my next statement, but I'm going to say it anyway. This album feels like it will stand the test of time. I, for certain, will play it on repeat, as it has a certain vibe that can change a mood in a moment.
