He’s returned with a vengeance after releasing his surprise EP, even though the project only hosts four tracks. The industry has been buzzing about Cordae for years, beginning when he was one of several YBN rappers on the rise. He decided to ditch the beginning of his moniker while remaining friends with the likes of YBN Almighty Jay and YBN Nahmir, but it’s clear that Cordae is steering his career in a different direction.
We haven’t received new music from Cordae in months, but the release of his surprise EP denotes that his sophomore album is on the horizon. After shedding his YBN title, Cordae has been hard at work in the studio as he crafts the follow-up to his 2019 debut studio album The Lost Boy. His introductory effort was praised by fans and artists alike, and some have been eyeing Cordae as the next lyrically-centered, bar-heavy emcee on the rise.
