Lil' Will remixes a classic.

Early last month, Yelawolf surprised fans by going in over Pink Floyd's "Money," a classic psychedelic rock single from the group's classic LP Dark Side Of The Moon. Today, another, less expected, emcee attempts a similar feat.

Taking on "Breathe," another hit from from Floyd's Dark Side, Jaden Smith does his best to remind listeners that he's not just Big Willie's son. Poking fun at his own career choices ("I bet you thought that you would body this/You're messing up a classic, how you did with 'The Karate Kid'") and rich-kid lifestyle through the voice of an unnamed narrator, he may actually win some fans here.

Does Jaden have an honest shot at a career in this industry? Let us know what you think of the track in the comment section.

Quotable Lyrics:

Oh, you say you want some more?
Well your father paid for all of this
If I was rapping like you, I'd help the world and call it quits
And I just rap at you anonymous
I hide behind my hate because I wish I had your confidence
But understand my only option is
To go to school and try to be friends with all these obnoxious kids
I don't hate you
I'm jealous of how you got to live
