Hip-hop neophyte YBN Cordae has released his highly-anticipated debut album, The Lost Boy. The 21-year-old Baltimore native, who first rose to fame thanks to his undeniably refreshing freestyles, delivers a carefully-structured project as a means of healing.

Tackling vulnerability head-on, the record welcomes listeners into Cordae’s closet of skeletons where he manipulates trauma into intricate, witty and punchy lyricism. With the likes of Anderson .Paak, Meek Mill, Pusha T, Ty Dolla $ign and Chance the Rapper adding a new layer of star power on the album, the newcomer proves he can keep up with the veterans’ individual skills all the while still connecting to the developing pool of hip-hop heads. Young, smart and unequivocally gifted, The Lost Boy is proof that Cordae is more than ready to step into the shoes of the chosen one, bridging the gap between OG hip-hop loyalists and followers of the new wave.
