2x GRAMMY® Award-nominated rapper Cordae knows exactly what he wants to say. He chooses his words and phrases carefully. He tells stories with clarity and honesty as can be seen on his 2nd project titled From A Birds Eye View which charted #1 on iTunes and Apple Music. He welcomed the project with an electrifying medley performance of "Sinister (Feat. Lil Wayne)" and "Chronicles (Feat. H.E.R. & Lil Durk)" on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Among the album’s many highlights, From A Birds Eye View also includes singles "C Carter," and "Super."
When Cordae isn’t recording, he’s constantly looking for ways to innovate and give back to the community. He partnered with Disney to form a scholarship fund, the first of its kind, to support students from underrepresented communities attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). In the first year of the scholarship fund becoming active (2022), 11 total students have received scholarships for their freshman year, and will continue to receive these scholarships annually so long as they maintain their academic standards. Additionally, he traveled across the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference to interact with students at eight participating HBCUs in partnership with Coca-Cola and Cxmmunity. Cordae is also the Male Face of Puma, and together they committed to donating $200,000 to the United Nations COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund as part of their initial Unity campaign. Most recently, Cordae was a panelist at the inaugural Recording Academy HBCU outreach panel and the Grammy’s on the Hill advocacy program in Washington DC on April 28th.
As an artist who shapes culture, Cordae will make his TED Talk debut on June 13th with “The Hi Level Mindset,” a discussion about the power of discipline and seriousness in everything you do, no matter how insignificant it may seem. He is among the youngest ever to deliver a TED talk, and only the 3rd music artist (Kid Cudi, Lizzo) to do so. He also partnered with OneOf and Shay The Surrealist on an NFT drop, which included 250 presale tokens and sold out in just 1 minute.
Returning to the music front, after completing a domestic run which included back to back sold out national dates and a splash performance for his first ever Coachella, Cordae will be traveling the globe on a wide-ranging world tour. His run will include highly anticipated festival performances at Lollapalooza, SummerJam NYC, Firefly Fest, SummerFest, Osheaga and many more followed by a UK/ European Tour (September 27- October 19).
