Just when we all thought 2017 had beaten us down, and the world is nothing more than a dumpster fire, the rap gods grace us with real audio of Blue Ivy rapping on a bonus track on JAY-Z's 4:44 album and all is right with the world again. One problem, though. The tweets about Blue Ivy's freestyle will leave you jonesing for more of her rhymes and, if you haven't heard, the Knowles-Carter family is now a family of five. They might be a tad busy doing other twin-related things thing for a while. Still, fans the world over can dream, right?
Now, it's worth noting that the prodigy clearly walking in the shoes of her famous and uber talented parents — Beyoncé and JAY-Z, for those of you hellbent on living under a rock — is only 5 years old. That didn't stop Blue, however, from dropping some serious lyrical madness on a bonus song titled "Blue's Freestyle/We Family," according to Rap Up. While some of her lyrics are somewhat nonsensical (or at least difficult to understand) like the line "Boom shakalaka, boom shakalaka / everything in shaka, everything in faka," other are a little more poignant. For example:
"Everything, everything is my only single thing. Everything I hear is my answer. I never hear that, I be in the posse / Never seen a ceiling in my whole life."
You guys, if that's not proof 2017 isn't as bad as we'd like to think, I don't know what is.
Fans of the Knowles-Carter family took to Twitter almost immediately to share their collective joy and overwhelming awe of Blue Ivy's rap game. Here are just a few of the many reactions, because clearly Blue has a future in the business that has already made her famous:
Clearly fans are here for a collaboration with Blue Ivy and DJ Khaled's son, Asahd Tuck Khaled. Hey, don't fight fate is all I'm saying. Could you imagine the kind of music magic these two prodigies could create, produce, and release? Well, obviously you can because, well, Twitter.
And of course, there were also a few tweets about how difficult it was to completely understand what Blue was saying. Still, her sometimes undecipherable lyrics didn't stop fans from loving her rhymes, regardless.
Other fans, however, were quick to point out that (at least to them) Blue Ivy already has more skill and talent than some established rappers in the game. For example:
Whether you could understand every single word, had a hard time with a few versus, or have just realized that a 5 year old has done more than you have in 30 years of life (guilty as charged), one thing is for certain: the music world the world over wants more of Blue Ivy's rhymes. The question is, how long is the Knowles-Carter dynasty going to make us wait?
