Here's Swizz and Egypt in 2012.

We're always excited to break hot new talent, and wait until you hear the latest rising star we've caught! Egypt Dean, the son of Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats, has been cultivating quite a buzz ever since he was five. Now he's six.

He's already co-produced a track on Kendrick Lamar's untitled.unmastered and been in the studio with Q-Tip. Now, we finally hear a leak of his first track "(I Am The) Superboy."

With the heavy rhythms of his father and the smooth melodic tones of his mother, Egypt's pedigree is strong. "(I Am the) Superboy," a wholly original composition, is catchy, empowering and the most galvanizing work by a first grader since "Minuet and Trio in G major." As Swizz posted on Instagram, "wait for the fancy fingers at the end" for some impressive ivory tickling.

Fortunately, Swizz leaked it just in time to make our year end best-of list. The future looks to be in good hands. Super.
