Cordae has shared an accompanying music video for his H.E.R. and Lil Durk-assisted track, “Chronicles.”

Directed by Aplus, Fredo Tovar, Scott Fleishman and Edwin Tovar, the visual sees the Raleigh-born rapper working at a diner and the three performing right outside the parking lot.

“Chronicles” is taken from Cordae’s latest full-length album From A Birds Eye View, which arrives two years after The Lost Boy. In a previous interview with HYPEBEAST, the rapper opened up about the growth he’s experienced in between records. “I’m a lot more honest with myself,” he said. “I’m very self-reflective, self-analytical. I’m aware of being more empathetic as a human being, just having knowledge of oneself, ultimate self-confidence.”

Prior to the release of the album, Cordae also shared a short message to his listeners:

“Each individual song has a significant place in my heart as they were all inspired by real life events, emotions and experiences. With that being said I ask ya’ll to please listen to songs 1-12 (Shilohs Intro-Westlake High) from top to bottom with no pauses, skips or interruptions. As this is the way it was intended to be listened to, especially the first time around. As a complete body of work. Thank you kindly for your ears and support. Love!”
