Rapper KOTA The Friend offers us a relationship-goals anthem with the song "Birdie", an ode to romantic love. Though short, sweet and simple, the visuals for the song were also released and are absolutely adorable. Herein, the rapper is seen sitting back-to-back with his lover while delivering cold bars. The two are seen smiling at each other and giving the ultimate cuteness overload. Compared to the music video, the song is much longer and offers more bars for listeners to appreciate. The track follows up on the anticipated release of his sophomore album FOTO.
The Brooklyn-bred rapper rose to prominence following the release of his debut album "Anything." back in 2018. Since then, he's been mentioned by Billboard and XXL as an act to follow along with garnering an instagram following that is 80k deep. Though prior to that, KOTA The Friend earned game cred via his collaborations with Asher Roth ("Asleep in the Bread Isle") and fellow New York rapping comrade Blu.
We ain’t in a competition
Ain't nobody catching up
Young, free and black with a whole lotta stamina
We are more than okay
Still reminiscing on the old days
I still take the book with a low spade
