Egypt Dean can add producer to his list of accomplishments. At just five years old, the son of Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys has helped produce a song.
“This is the best Dad moment everrrrr,” Swizz exclaimed. “Congrats to my son Egypt for producing his 1st track on this amazing Kendrick Album.” The producer also shared video footage of Egypt playing the piano while working on the single. “This is Egypt playing the intro to his beat on #Kendrick #7 on the album. 5yrs old in his zone !! #proudparents making of the beat vid 2.”
Kendrick Lamar released his newest album, Untitled. Unmastered, on Thursday. The project’s release came as a surprise to many who speculated that the artist had music in the works but were uncertain of the details surrounding Kedrick’s album. The recording artist did tell media that he had a number of songs that were not included on his To Pimp A Butterfly album prior to performing one of the singles at the 2016 Grammy Awards.
“I got a chamber of material from the album that I was in love [with] where sample clearances or something as simple as a deadline kept it off the album,” Lamar shared. “I think [there’s] probably close to 10 songs that I’m in love with that I’ll still play and still perform that didn’t make the cut.”
Perhaps a few, or all, of Kendrick’s songs on Untitled. Unmastered are among those not included in his last project. In any case, watch Egypt perfect his contribution to the work of art below.
