This video is arguably the best thing since sliced bread. Two-year-old Khaliyl Iloyi can barely keep the smile off his face as he demonstrates his impeccable rhythm, though he doesn’t quite have the words yet. No matter, this adorable little guy is as happy as can be freestyling in his pajamas alongside British hip hop artist Alim Kamara. Khaliyl’s parents are Femi and Roucheon Iloyi of the UK gospel hip hop group The Royal Priesthood. His dad Femi, aka “Smooflow”, is an emcee and record producer, while his mom Roucheon is a singer and songwriter. Growing up around that kind of musical energy, it’s small wonder Khaliyl is rapping before he can talk. And boy, do we love it.
