Video of Elon Musk and Grimes' son X Æ A-Xii playing the synth is going viral

Being the child of billionaire Elon Musk and Grimes would definitely make him or her unique. So when a video of 10 month old X Ae A-12 was shared where he was playing a synth some were surprised while others wouldn’t have expected anything less.

For Grimes’ birthday, the artist shares a series of pictures on her Instagram showing that X Ae A-12 has taken after his mother when it comes to his musical talents.

“Lil X made a loop on my keyboard?” Grimes wrote alongside a video of the baby.

She goes on to add,

"Prob an accident but TBH he played a super fire set just now."

For those that are wondering what a synthesizer is and how its different from a keyboard let us make it clearer. Not only is a synthesizer usually more expensive, it also is more suitable for musicians who want to create their own sounds or adjust existing samples in a lot of detail. In comparison a keyboard is more suitable for those with a large number of sounds and samples and automated accompaniments in many styles.

Clearly if you are the son of Elon Musk and Grimes, an ordinary equipment will not do. Maybe X Ae A-12 is a musician in the making and will take after his mom, or maybe he will be more like his father and cryptocurrencies and futuristic vehicles will be more his thing. Needless to say its too early to tell but his mom is proud of him nonetheless. Tell us what you think?
