Swizz Beatz’ and Alicia Keys’ five-year-old son helping produce new Q-Tip album

Video posted to Instagram of Egypt Daoud Dean following in his old man's footsteps

The son of major league hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz and r’n’b singer Alicia Keys is clearly a chip off the old block: his dad has released footage of him helping out with the production on Q-Tip’s new album.

On a video uploaded to Instagram, Egypt Dean, who is just five years old, can be seen using a drum pad with the former A Tribe Called Quest MC singing along in the background.

Clearly proud of his son, Beatz, who has worked with Beyonce, DMX and Jay-Z among others, captioned the video “The teacher & the student pure vibes……….”
