Most five-year-olds spend their days playing with toys, watching cartoons, scheming new sneaky ways to get their hands on sugar, and battling their arch nemesis – shoelaces. But Blue Ivy Carter isn’t your average five-year-old. For one thing, she’s the type of rich that means she doesn’t have to deal with tying her shoes (she probably has a robot to do that for her). She’s also the daughter of two very famous entertainers, which means it would only be a matter of time before she debuted her skills on one of her parent’s albums.
Blue Ivy’s voice has appeared on tracks by Beyonce and Jay-Z before (Blue, Glory), but it was limited to just child mumbling. This time Blue Ivy appears on a bonus track of Jay-Z’s cheater confessional, 4:44, called Blue’s Freestyle/We Family. Blue Ivy spits some hot freestyle lyrics like “Everything I have is mshshshf” and “I never shfrdst nannupunnapadsay.” That’s pretty impressive for a five-year-old.

Blue Ivy’s verse has everything: confidence, energy, sophisticated wordplay, a hot beat. Plus, she sings about her life without being braggy. For instance, she raps about everything, but doesn’t explicitly state what exactly everything includes. That’s very kind of her. Nothing would be more of a buzzkill for adults than hearing a five-year-old rap about her custom-upgraded PowerWheels and realizing her battery-powered kiddie rides are nicer than their actual car.
