Watch Diplo Freestyle About Magazines and Chicken in His Apartment in 2007

A decade ago, Diplo’s early work with M.I.A. was only just starting to turn him into a known quantity for anyone other than hardcore East Coast clubgoers. Worldwide tours with Major Lazer and collaborations with Justin Bieber were still twinkles in his eye when he sat down and rapped this supremely goofy freestyle, sitting in a supremely messy apartment in 2007.

The following throwback video comes to us from Baltimorean Cullen Enn, who posted it to Instagram Monday evening with the caption “I couldn’t wait til tomorrow to post this ridiculous vid of @diplo freestyling in 2007 at his…old apt.” Take it away, Diplo.
