Watch a young Kanye West rap in a recently unearthed clip from the late 1990s

Footage has surfaced of a young Kanye West rapping all the way back in 1998. The clip is below, taken from a trailer for Chicago rapper Cap 1’s new mixtape, Caviar Dreams. In it, Cap lays down a few bars before passing the mic to young whippersnapper West, who’s sporting a surprisingly unstylish sleeveless Champion T-shirt and backwards hat. 2 Chainz is also in the clip, though he was still going by the name "Tity Boi" back then.

Caviar Dreams is out next Tuesday, Jan. 14.
