As he readies his sophomore album, Cordae has dropped off a new single called “The Parables.”
On the track, the Maryland rapper flexes his storytelling skills while reminiscing on own regrets. The song’s accompanying video, directed by Sergio, captures Cordae as he intertwines his own memories with a fictional story about one man’s drunken night out gone wrong.
“I can tell you ’bout the time was goin’ hard up in the paint / And I can tell you shit the other n***as can’t, lemme tell you / I can tell you by the time I had the drop a n***a rank / And I can tell the shit I did up off the drank, lemme tell you,” he spits.
“The Parables” was first previewed over the summer on Travis Scott’s .WAV radio show. The single marks the second offering from Cordae’s as-yet-untitled sophomore album, following “Gifted” with Roddy Ricch. The record will be the rapper’s first simply as Cordae, after dropping “YBN” from his artist name in August following his exit from the collective.
