Swizz Beatz’s 5-Year-Old Son Egypt Is a Producer on Kendrick Lamar’s New ‘untitled unmastered.’ Project
Kendrick Lamar dropped his new project untitled unmastered tonight and the rap world is in a flurry over the TDE rapper's surprise release. Even more surprising might be the fact that Swizz Beatz's 5-year-old son Egypt is apparently a producer on the album, according to the young prodigy's father.
Earlier tonight (March 3), Swizz posted a picture to Instagram of the seventh track on Kendrick's album called "2014 - 2016." "This is the best Dad moment everrrrr!!!" Swizz wrote on Insta. "Congrats to my son Egypt for producing his 1st track on this amazing Kendrick Album [...] he's only 5yrs old wowwwwwww @aliciakeys look at our lil guy baby [...] #blessingsonblessings thx #Kendrick for investing in the future !!! Track 7."
Swizz also posted video of his little guy in the studio making the beat that would be used for K Dot's new stuff. You can see that video below.
Kanye enlisted Swizz's vocal abilities on his latest The Life of Pablo album for "Famous," one of the biggest songs on the album. Swizz was also recently in the studio with Schoolboy Q, and even posted a video of the two together while Swizz played Q some beats. Needless to say, the shit he was playing sounded crazy.
Kendrick seems to have a nice range of producers on here, including Cardo on track two and Frank Dukes on at least one other song from the project. The production sounds like it's almost completely live, minus a song or two. It's muted but also somewhat electric and very heavy on production.
You can listen to Kendrick's new album on Spotify right now.
