Clearly, musical talent can be an inherited trait.
Beatz took to Instagram on Monday to show off his young son’s creative endeavor, as well as his legitimately impressive piano work.
“Proud Dad Alert,” the 38-year-old hip hop star captioned the awesome video. “Egy wrote his 1st song Super-boy… wait for the fancy fingers at the end. Kids you gotta love em.”
It’s not the first time the proud papa has showcased his son’s musical skills. Back in March, Beatz revealed that Egypt had already scored his first-ever producing credit, on rapper Kendrick Lamar’s untitled unmastered. album.
Earlier this month, Keys sat down for an interview with Ryan Seacrest where she opened up about her son’s budding talent.
“He’s super musical,” she shared. “He always has been, since he was a kid. You could play a rhythm on a drum and he’d duplicate it, or you could do a beat box with your mouth and he’ll duplicate it.”
“He’s playing piano and he’s getting good at it, he’s out there practicing,” Keys added. “It takes practice! No one is good for no reason, so he’s working on it.”
It appears that Egypt’s hard work is paying off.
