World, meet KJ: the kidnappingly cute prodigal producer who’s destined to give Kanye a run for his money. He makes his own beats, he makes his own (kind of) raps, he’s show-stoppingly adorable – oh, and he’s only four years old… KJ’s mother, Keysha told us KJ’s penchant for the keyboard began at the tender age of four months. He got his first drum set at one, and by the time he was two, li’l KJ would happily spend the day making music. He inherited his flair for beatmaking from his producer dad (JRod Beatz); “KJ was interested in using the computer to make beats. Finally, he let him play around on the computer and we were just amazed by what we heard!”. And so were 60,000 YouTube viewers. Wonderland couldn’t resist quizzing the adorable KJ on his new found fame.
