    Behold, Grimes Shared A Video Of Baby X Æ A-Xii Playing A Synth

    It was reportedly a "super fire set."

    If you want more Grimes and baby X Æ A-Xii content, then you're in the right place.

    In case you missed it, X Æ A-Xii* is the 10-month-old child of Grimes and bajillionaire Elon Musk.

    Now, for Grimes' birthday, the artist shared a series of pics on her Instagram — including a video of X Æ A-Xii taking after his mom and playing the synth.

    "Lil X made a loop on my keyboard?" Grimes wrote alongside a vid of the bb.

    I would describe the sound as an "electronica sense of dread," a category that I would also consider Grimes' own music to fall into (I say this lovingly, as someone who APPARENTLY listened to many, many hours of Grimes last year — thanks, Spotify).

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

    It appears that his hair has well and truly grown into a baby Mohawk.

    "Did you make a loop? You're so smart!" Grimes (presumably) says in the background, followed by Lil' X laughing.

    Looks like X Æ A-Xii was also pretty into his "fire" set.

    If you're looking to get the same synth for a baby in your life, the Teenage Engineering OP-1 Portable Synthesizer can be yours for a mere $1,299. Apparently, Hans Zimmer also uses one!

    Or, you know, I bought my niece a baby keyboard that cost like $30 — whatever floats your boat.

    Calling it now: a Grimes x X Æ A-Xii collab in the near future???
