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.”

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
