When Cordae dropped the YBN prefix from his name, many thought it was because he was beefing with the other members of his Young Boss N*ggas crew, YBN Almighty Jay and YBN Nahmir. But he said the decision had more to do with branding and ownership.

“I remember when I dropped YBN. It wasn’t a popular thing at the time. I was getting killed online. And I got tough skin. This is just what comes with the game. I don’t be trippin’ off anything,” Cordae told Genius. “I can’t be talking to kids about ownership when we’re pushing this brand that we don’t even own. Obviously, it goes without saying, it ain’t nothing against Nahmir and Jay. Before I came to the conclusion that I was gonna drop the three letters, I called Nahmir and I asked for his blessing. That was what was most important to me, I don’t care what anybody else thinks.”

In regards to music, Cordae's latest project is Just Until, a four song EP that features Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest, and Young Thug. The project is supposed to tie fans over until the DMV rapper's sophomore LP.
