North Carolina’s own Cordae came out swinging with his first release for 2021. It is a four track EP coined Just Until…  that includes guest appearances from legendary rapper Q-Tip and eccentric rapper Young Thug. The EP also marks his first release since his debut project dropped back in 2019.

New Album from Cordae

The collective opens on a reflective note with “More Life” featuring Q-Tip. The clean cut produced track takes the listener through Cordae’s thoughts on his past, present, and future regarding his art. Q-Tip takes on the hook which leaves a little to be desired but overall, it’s a dope opener. “Dream In Color” is the front runner for the project. The charismatic instrumentation paired with the personal transparent content from Cordae is a hit. There is a slight deviation from the more substance-based themes when we hit “Wassup” featuring Young Thug. But everything comes back full circle as the project closes out with a soulful family tribute courtesy of “Thornton Street.”

Just Until… makes for a great appetizer while fans await Cordae’s full sophomore offering.
