Fresh from announcing his debut album Good For You, Portland rapper Aminé is next up to deliver his XXL Freshman Class freestyle for 2017. Here we find the “Caroline” rapper showing off his vocal prowess during a minute-long freestyle, with no musical accompaniment.

“I don’t really think much of any songs I put out like I know…I think they’re good, that’s why I’m putting them out,” Aminé said when speaking with XXL. “But like I don’t ever try to expect anything, so even with ‘Caroline’ or ‘Red Mercedes,’ I just put them out and hope for the best and people kind of gravitate towards them and I guess that’s pretty cool and that’s a blessing.”

Aminé’s anticipated debut is due out July 28.
