For rapper YBN Cordae, his Broccoli City performance was more than just another festival on the circuit. Hailing from Maryland, the artist treated the D.C. area performance like the homecoming that it was. From his set list to his interactions with the crowd to bringing other DMV natives on stage, even the smallest details had to make a big impact. The resulting show and each of its pored-over elements are a testament to the way that Cordae lives large.

Considering that before releasing his 2018 breakout single, “My Name Is,” Cordae was waiting tables at TGIFriday’s, his performance on the main stage at Broccoli City makes it clear that he has never been afraid to break out of his comfort zone. “It’s easy to just go through the motions,” says Cordae, but he chooses instead to take on challenges that push the boundaries of his career and the industry. Combining his lyrical and musical talent with his big vision, Cordae has become known for his colossal presence, born from an unmatched work ethic. It’s a mentality that’s landed him exactly where he’s meant to be: on stage.

Pulling back the curtain on YBN Cordae’s festival preparations shows how he shares Magnum’s ethos of living large. Check out the video above to get a behind-the-scenes look as he goes from rehearsals to the stage.
