Cordae recruits Lil Wayne for "Sinister"
The collaboration is expected to appear on Cordae’s sophomore LP From A Bird’s Eye View.
It’s been a couple of years since Cordae delivered his official debut LP The Lost Boy, which saw 15 tracks and collaborations alongside Pusha T, Meek Mill, Arin Ray, Ty Dolla $ign, Anderson .Paak, and Chance The Rapper. The top 20 effort was critically acclaimed by peers and fans alike, quickly pushing the former YBN emcee to the forefront of hip hop’s current leading roster. Since then, Cordae could be heard contributing his bars to songs like H.E.R.‘s “Lord Is Coming (Remix),” Denzel Curry’s “AL1ENZ,” Dinner Party’s “Freeze Tag (Remix),” and Stevie Wonder’s “Can’t Put It in the Hands of Fate.” He also dropped the four-track EP Just Until…, which saw a couple of assists from Q-Tip and Young Thug.
Sooner than we probably think, Cordae will liberate his official follow-up titled From A Bird’s Eye View, which was led by the previously released cuts “Super,” “Gifted” with Roddy Ricch and “The Parables.” Today (Dec. 3), he adds to that with “Sinister,” a Hit-Boy-produced banger that features the legendary Lil Wayne and sees the DMV talent bringing some of his hardest bars to date:
“Yeah, alright, my flow sinister, this ain’t rap music, this straight literature, small minded nigga, all your ideas miniature, they tend to hate on you when they can’t get rid of ya, I ain’t going nowhere, twenty year career minimum, call Hit-Boy for beats, ask for ten of ’em, I don’t follow trends my nigga, I swing the pendulum…”
As previously reported by REVOLT, a recent episode of “HBO’s “The Shop: Uninterrupted” saw Jadakiss asking Cordae‘s girlfriend and tennis pro Naomi Osaka for a possible connection with her musical counterpart:
“I need to do something with Cordae … I’m gonna call in a favor for you to set me up to meet him and… you know what I mean?” he said. “I love him as a rapper. I think he’s super talented.”
