Young rap sensations are continuing to spiral out of PG County, Maryland from Q Da Fool being signed to Roc Nation and Rico Nasty putting her wave of 'sugar trap' on the map. Next up is the impressive deviant of the YBN collective, YBN Cordae.
Cordae properly introduced himself as a threat in the rap game with his "My Name Is" Remix. The remix created a massive buzz of listeners tuning in to his music and staying put for what else he had to offer.
He delivered again shortly after with "Old N*ggas" which is a response to J.Cole's "1985". His response is refreshing as he makes it clear that he's a young rapper who is defending the new generation of rap, but still respecting both sides especially the OGs that paved the way for him such as Talib Kweli and Nas.
While continuing the open dialogue from the youth of rap's perspective, it also offers solutions for the seemingly never-ending argument through tough bars and his knack of witty punchlines.
Along with securing millions of views, 2018 is looking to be a promising year for Cordae after having one of the biggest music festivals, Rolling Loud, be the stage of his very first show. In only the span of two weeks, Cordae's grind is already coming to fruition and following his rise to stardom will be very exciting to see.
