Featuring Q-Tip & Young Thug.
Coming off his Grammy-nominated 2019 album, The Lost Boy, Cordae leveraged antiquated internet rapper perceptions to saddle his Trojan Horse; his former YBN affiliation knocked on the door, his soulful music and pensive lyrics kicked it down. The lauded album introduced lamens to what Cordae truthers had long known: this kid can flat-out rap. The project was transformational for him. Now positioned as a dynamic artist who can appeal equally to hip-hop purists and new wave fans alike, Cordae’s value has increased exponentially.
As any good businessman knows, when you have an in-demand product, scarcity is the elixir for growth. Cordae is well-accustomed to this sentiment, given his nearly two-year album drought. But with his quality of music, supporters have remained patient — but everyone has their limits. This notion isn’t lost on Cordae. Today, he’s laid out bread crumbs leading up to his anticipated sophomore album through his four-track EP, Just Until….
This surprise project further asserts Cordae’s position as one of his generation’s most promising musicians — not just rappers. Shedding the YBN moniker, Cordae has become a consummate professional who deftly navigates varying emotional instrumentals with his introspective mind and preternatural linguistic command. Featuring Q-Tip and Young Thug, Just Until… foreshadows an explosive successor to Cordae’s groundbreaking rookie album.
Just Until… is like getting an ice cream sample: it might just be a taste, but it leaves you craving more. Soon, Cordae will deliver the long-awaited full scoops of music.
