YBN Cordae’s rise has seen him gaining the respect of his rap peers with his lyrical precision at the youthful age of 21. The DMV-raised spitter delivered his anticipated solo debut project with The Lost Boy on Friday (July 26).
Boasting 15 tracks in total, The Lost Boy finds Cordae trading bars with a slew of special guests. Look for cameos from Meek Mill, Pusha T, Chance The Rapper, Anderson .Paak, Ty Dolla $ign, and Arin Ray. Quincy Jones was also involved with helping Cordae make the effort as cohesive as possible.
“I just wanted to express myself and be vulnerable,” he recently told Billboard of touching on topics such as the fractured relationship within his family and drug addiction. “That’s just what I found myself doing, just being a vulnerable artist, person and human being. Fuck an artist, I’m a human being at the end of the day. So I’m just expressing myself and being more vulnerable. It’s like just speaking my truths.”
