    Cordae's been busy preparing for the release of his second album, From A Bird's Eye View, and he's gone on a trip down memory lane to showcase his beginnings as a rapper.

    Cordae's always been a student of the game, and the throwback freestyle he's shared is proof. The clip sees a teenage Cordae rapping over Kanye West's Gone, a track that appeared on 2005's Late Registration.

    His signature lyricism is already on display here, pulling out bars like "Presently, these goals are just manifested/Cuz right now, my pockets looking anorexic/People hatin' on the grind, and I can't respect it" while his friend next to him hypes him up. Sharing the footage, Cordae wrote, "16 yr old me was fake nice". We have to respectfully disagree - the talent displayed here is unmistakable. There's no "fake niceness" to be seen, because teenager Cordae definitely had bars.

    From A Bird's Eye View is set to drop on January 14th, featuring the fiery Super. The album will also include Cordae's collaboration with Lil Wayne, Sinister, which is a real treat for true hip-hop heads. Cordae goes toe-to-toe with Wayne on the track, while making the claim that he's going to be part of the hip-hop scene for a long time to come.

    Check out the freestyle below. It showcases that Cordae's always been a seriously talented MC, and his skills continue to grow every single day. There's not long to wait before From A Bird Eye's View arrives, and we're excited to hear what Cordae's been up to since he released his Grammy-nominated debut album The Lost Boy back in 2019.
