YBN Cordae is just a young pup, at age 21.
But unlike contemporaries like Lil Yachty and Lil Xan, he has a healthy dose of respect for his elders.
When asked by Nick Cannon to do his top five, Cordae went old school.
"No order, you got JAY Z, you got Nas, you got 2Pac, you got Biggie," he said. “That fifth spot ... I’ll give Big L the edge over Eminem.. That's just me personally. I just f*cked with his sh*t—his cadence and wordplay was just so crazy,” he explained.
Cordae went on to say his step-dad introduced him to Big L.
