Kwayzar may be old, but he's still got swag for DAYS. After being popularized by Reddit, the 83-year-old rapper and his hit song "I Can Still Do It" has taken the Internet by storm.

In an exclusive performance, Kwayzar puts on a show LIVE at the What's Trending studios, complete with some sick beat-boxing, courtesy of Kevin from superstar a capella group Pentatonix.

We also get the scoop from Kwayzar himself about how he got into the rap game (Ice Cube had a little something to do with it) and his reaction to new found online infamy.

Knowing full well that he had a knack for rhymes, having written songs and Broadway tunes, Kwayzar took some of his comedy routines and starting turning them into rap songs.

Never underestimate an ambitious octogenarian!
