Keys and Swizz Beatz’s son Egypt got his first album credit on Kendrick Lamar’sΒ Untitled Unmastered,Β but there’s more. Swizz posted a video of Egypt freestyling on a piano to the tune of “Super-Boy,” a song he wrote himself. The melody is standard and repetitive to start but as the video progresses, the kid’s piano chops really shine.

“Proud Dad Alert πŸš¨πŸ˜‚ Egy wrote his 1st song Super-boyπŸ™ŒπŸ½ wait for the fancy fingers at the end πŸ˜‚ Kids you gotta love emπŸ’—πŸŽΉ #Dedication #hardwork πŸ‘πŸ½ EGY-Keys-Beatz,” wrote Swizz.
