Anyone who starts off their Mind Massage with a tribute to The Ying Yang Twins "Wait (The Whisper Song)" secures the crown in our book. It's no surprise why YBN Cordae, one of this years XXL Freshman, is becoming one of the hottest names in hip-hop these days. From the 2019 BET Awards, to a XXL Freestyle and to performing at the Jimmy Fallon show, we thought it was only right to have the "RNP" rapper in for this edition of Mind Massage.
Hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina "The Lost Boy" gained traction, in 2018, after uploading a few remixes of some of his favorite songs by rap hard-hitters Eminem and J Cole. This ultimately not only began to put Raleigh on the rap radar, but also helped establish his fan base.
"It's always good energy at my shows, I'm very hands on and personal.. I talk to each and every last one of them after the show," he whispers after painting.
The 21-year-old, who is a member of the YBN fam, has always wanted to do music however he admits taking a backseat to further perfect his craft. Now being one of the hottest names to watch, he hopes the way his music makes him feel is equivalent to how his millions of fans feel.
"I feel like my music is very threputatic to myself," the "Have Mercy" rapper whispered to Fuse. "Whenever I'm going through something I go boxing." Through his vulnerability, his fans see themselves.
