Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz created some talented children.
Their oldest son, Egypt, has already proven to be quite the master on the piano. Now, the couple’s 2-year-old son, Genesis, is taking after his pops and has naturally picked up on the art of dropping beats.
Swizz shared the most adorable video on Instagram late Wednesday, of his toddler beatboxing. Not only did he keep the beat steady, but he then tried to bust a flow. “1,2,3,4,5,6,” he spit.
In the visual, Genesis, clad in a grey sweatsuit, can be seen sitting on a table while showing off his skills. “In the middle of my #NoCommissionShanghai Genesis wanted me to hear his new beat 1234567 thx @brooklyn_lighthouse on the gear,” Swizz captioned the clip.
It’s no secret the children of Keys and Swizz are destined for greatness.
Back in 2016, Egypt, who at the time was just 5 years old, produced a brilliant track titled “track 7” for Kendrick Lamar, which landed on the rapper’s album, Untitled Unmastered. Alicia revealed during a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! exactly how the process went down.
“He heard these melodies and one day, he was singing these things, and I was like, ‘Babe, what is that?’ and he’s like, ‘Oh, that’s the new song for Kung Fu Panda 4.’ I said, ‘There is no Kung Fu Panda 4,’ and I said, ‘Hmmm, you’re hearing something,’” she explained. “So, I had him go pick it out at the piano. He figured out the melody, and then his daddy took him to the studio, and he played all the different instruments in the studio, played the keyboard, programmed the drums and did what he heard.”
