A star is born!

North West made it clear that she has what it takes to follow in her father’s footsteps.

The six-year-old daughter of Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West took the stage during her his "Yeezy" fashion show in Paris on Monday.

The spunky youngin' was decked out in a purple track suit as she introduced herself as “Northie” before launching into song as the models strutted by in head-to-toe “Yeezy.”

North seemed to get her flow from her father as she rapped, “This is new, wearing my shoes, they are cute and cool, they are new, I am cool, see you at my school."

While many believed it was an “original” piece, the lyrics belong to five-year-old rapper, Zaza, who performed the track last July. Zaza’s mom took to Instagram asking Kim and Kanye to give credit where credit is due.

She wrote: "in July of 2019, ZaZa & her dad went into the studio for the ultimate experience! To finally begin making the music she wanted to make. We take PRIDE in creativity, and believe whether a child’s involved or an adult... creativity deserves RESPECT/homage! What @kimkardashian (Kanye west) are doing with their daughter... with the inspiration of ZaZa & our family in mind is okay. we not mad BUT PLS SHOW LOVE AND SUPPORT TO THE ORIGINAL FIRST!!! We admire Kanye west, and adore his journey,” she said.

Zaza’s mom concluded writing, "However, we don’t wanna feel like our daughter’s journey in the world of entertainment is being STIFLED. THANK YOU!"

Kim responded shortly after writing, “We love you, North is a huge fan and records in the studio all the time with her dad and is inspired by ZaZa and loves Lay Lay too! Todays performance of North’s remix of ZaZa’s song was something she asked to do at the last minute and a complete surprise. I didn’t mean to not give credit where credit was due."

She added, “Would love for the girls to meet soon. 💕”

Kim also added that North's first performance had her in tears.

Northie concluded her lively performance shouting out her cousin, Kourtney Kardashian’s daughter, Penelope.

And for her grand finale, she opted for a heavy metal scream as Kanye looked on beaming with pride at his little protégé.

North’s on her way to having her own career just like her father. She previously performed at his Sunday Service shows.

Kim even told Vogue Arabia that North was West's "twin," in that they are both "so creative [and] expressive."
