Rapper Kendrick Lamar surprised fans Thursday night with his new album, Untitled Unmastered. Kendrick has had much success since his last studio album To Pimp a Butterfly, even gaining the recognition of President Barack Obama. He also earned five Grammys for the album. With that being said, we’re sure his new album won’t disappoint. But the real buzz has been around producer Swizz Beatz’s 5-year old son! That’s right, 5-year old Egypt, the son of Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, has a production on Kendrick’s new album!

Young Egypt produced track number 7, “Untitled 07 2014-2016.” During Super Bowl 50, Swizz posted a video with his son surrounded by Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar and Usher, asking  his little genius if he was “working on a beat for Kendrick,” but who would’ve imagined he was capable of producing a whole song for one of the hottest rappers in the game?

Needless to say, Swizz Beatz is beyond proud of his son, as he took to Instagram saying, “This is the best dad moment everrrrr!!! Congrats to my son Egypt for producing his 1st track on this amazing Kendrick Album.”

Swizz also thanked Kendrick for investing in the future. Egypt is clearly talented and his work is amazing. But then again, with Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys as parents, would you expect anything less? Take a look at Egypt at work below!
