Blue Ivy Carter Proves She's a Rapper Just Like Dad JAY-Z On '4:44' Bonus Track

With parents like Beyoncé and JAY-Z, Blue Ivy Carter is simply destined to have musical gifts few other humans possess.

However, few would have guessed that we would receive a Blue Ivy freestyle anytime soon.

The physical release of JAY-Z’s newest album, 4:44, includes three bonus tracks: “Adnis,” the James Blake-featuring “ManyFacedGod,” and “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family.” The latter sees the 5-year-old rapping off the top of her head, delivering baller lines like “never seen a ceiling in my whole life,” and repeating “boom shakalaka, boom shakalaka,” as many of us did at one point as a child, but never being that cool.

Listen to a clip of the track:

Technically, this isn’t Blue’s musical debut. In 2012, two days after the birth of his first daughter, JAY-Z released the track “Glory” as a tribute to his wife and daughter, including a sample of Blue crying. In 2013, she was featured talking and laughing on her mother’s track named “Blue,” including her saying “Bee-sy-ay,” which is how she used to pronounce Beyoncé’s name.

JAY-Z’s album is now available on Amazon and Apple Music. Check out the lyrics to “Blue’s Freestyle” below via Genius.

Everything everything this my only single thing
Everything I hear is my answer
And if you think I say, then [?]
I never hear that, I be in the posse
Never seen a ceiling in my whole life
Everything I seen, everything is rotten
Never sit in silence, innocent is Carter
Innocent we seek them
I and say we see them
[?]

Boom shakalaka, boom shakalaka
Boom shakalaka, boom shakalaka
Everything in shaka, everything in faka
Everything in shaka, everything in faka
