If you’ve scrolled mindlessly through TikTok or Instagram’s discover page at any point in the last year, there’s a good chance you’ve seen at least one of Daniel Mac’s videos.

Going by itsdanielmac on Instagram, Mac is the guy who goes up to people in expensive cars and asks them what they’re doing. His Instagram page is full of rich people, sitting in beautiful cars, explaining what they do for a living and how they ended up riding in luxury. 

Recently, Mac stumbled upon rapper Cordae, sliding through his neighborhood in a classic, Mercedes Benz 280 SL, a $350K car only produced from 1967 to 1971.

Cordae and Mac exchange pleasantries, and the 24-year-old rapper explains that he makes music for a living, and that he released his debut album, The Lost Boy, back in 2019. Mac continues on to ask about the status of his upcoming album, and Cordae gave fans a promising update. 

“I’m almost done with that sh*t, bro. I promise you I’m almost done with it,” Cordae assured. “It’s on the way. It’s coming sooner than you think.”

What exactly “sooner than you think” means is obviously up for debate. In an era when it’s common for artists drop multiple times, the more-than two years Cordae has waited since his last release feels like an eternity. Fans can hope that “sooner than you think” means right around the corner, or before the end of 2021, but until then, there’s no way to really know. 

“The Lost Boy” rapper did clear his Instagram back in August, a classic move to alert fans of new music on the horizon, but it’s been two months since then and Cordae’s interview with Daniel Mac is the only update we have.
