Keys and Swizz Beatz’s son Egypt got his first album credit on Kendrick Lamar’s Untitled Unmasteredbut 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 🚨😂 Egy wrote his 1st song Super-boy🙌🏽 wait for the fancy fingers at the end 😂 Kids you gotta love em💗🎹 #Dedication #hardwork 👏🏽 EGY-Keys-Beatz,” wrote Swizz.
