Egypt Daoud Dean is the elder son of multi-millionaire performers Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz. Egypt is the fourth child for his father, and first for his mother. Despite his young age, he has already tried himself as a rapper.

Early life and family

Egypt Daoud Dean was born on 14 October 2010, in New York City, USA, so his zodiac sign is Libra, and he holds American nationality.

Egypt’s parents met each other when they were teenagers and only starting to develop their music careers. Alicia once shared in her interview to Marie Claire UK, that the first time she met Swizz, she was not impressed by him, as she thought he behaved too ostentatiously. At those times many rappers and hip-hoppers collaborated together, but Alicia refused to record a single with Swizz, escaping all the opportunities. However, when they met again at the end of 2008, their attitude to each other changed a lot, and they started dating. It all happened in one year of 2010: Alicia and Swizz became engaged in May 2010, right after his quick divorce from his wife, singer Mashonda Tifrere, then married in July 2010, and she gave birth to Egypt in October.

Mother, Alicia Keys

Egypt’s mother, Alicia Augello-Cook, was born on 25 January 1981, in Manhattan, New York USA. Her childhood lacked her father’s attention, as Craig Cook was out of her mother’s life even before she was born, leaving his wife with three kids in her arms. However, Alicia knows that he was of Jamaican descent; her mother, Teresa Augello, is of Italian descent. Alicia has always been interested in performing and singing; while in preschool, she landed the role of Dorothy Gale in the school’s production “The Wizard of Oz”, and at the age of six she discovered her passion for playing the piano.

Aged 12, Alicia enrolled at the Professional Performing Arts School, and then started studying jazz at the age of 14. Alicia recorded her first studio “Songs in A Minor” in 2001, and it instantly raced to the top of various charts. Her second album “The Diary of Alicia Keys” (2003) was also very successful, after which she took a break from recording, as she experienced some difficulties with the relationship with her then-boyfriend, Kerry Brothers Jr. The couple broke up in 2008 after Alicia released her third album “As I Am”. All in all, Alicia has recorded seven studio albums – her latest work “Alicia” (2020) is now conquering the charts, while the R&B singer is preparing for her world tour.

Truman High School, so he quit to start working at Ruff Ryders recording label, founded by two of his uncles, Darrin “Dee” Dean and Joaquin “Waah” Dean, and his aunt, Chivon Dean. Inspired by such talented performers as DMX, Eve and many others, Swizz decided to launch his own music career.
