Before and after memes highlighting life accomplishments have been flooding social media and Cordae’s entry is one of the best yet.
The Maryland native placed a photo from what seems to be his eighth-grade Thurgood Marshall Middle School yearbook crowning him “Most Likely to be Famous” beside a shot of him chilling with one of hip-hop’s most esteemed figures: Dr. Dre.
This isn’t your typical photo-op either, as Dre is on Cordae’s shortlist of mentors, providing guidance around his Grammy-nominated debut album, The Lost Boy. In fact, this picture was reportedly snapped circa 2018 during a 16-hour studio session on Cordae’s 21st birthday.
It’s not every day someone fulfills the lofty expectations of “Most Likely to be Famous”!
Spending this kind of quality time together, Cordae has developed a deep admiration for Dre and his legacy, referring to him as “the greatest of all time” in a conversation with Montreality.
“Dr. Dre has always cultivated the most impactful artists of every decade,” he explained. “Of every era, he has his hand in it. With NWA, he is NWA. With himself, with Snoop Dogg, with 2Pac, then Eminem, then 50 Cent, then Kendrick Lamar. Bro!”
Other notable names (outside of Quavo and Saweetie) who gladly showed their followers “How it’s going” include Young MA and superstar producer duo Take A Daytrip, who produced Cordae’s “Kung Fu.”
Y’all feeling this flex-filled trend or nah?
