50 Cent Wants YBN Cordae to See Him Before Signing a Record Deal
A throwback Thursday post on Instagram from YBN Cordae may land the rapper a record deal with 50 Cent. After posting an old photo of himself sporting a G-Unit jacket and tagging 50, the YBN rapper caught the eye of the New York spitter, who told him he would like to chat with him.
"#TBT Always been a young boss nigga @50cent #getthestrap," Cordae wrote in the caption. 50 quickly caught wind of the photo, reposting it on his page and writing, "Come see me before you do any deal. @ybncordae on some real shit. get the strap." Cordae saw the post and responded in the comments, writing "Fasho."
It's uncertain if 50's offer is just for Cordae or the rest of the YBN collective as well, but the group recently released their latest collaborative project, YBN: The Mixtape, on Sept. 7. Featuring 23 songs, the project includes guest appearances from Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa, Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Skies, Cuban Doll, Gucci Mane and more.
Along with their joint mixtape, the entire YBN crew has been making a name for themselves in 2018. In June, YBN Nahmir was named a 2018 XXL Freshman, while YBN Almighty Jay has dropped the songs "2 Tone Drip" and "Back Quick" with Rich The Kid.
Up next for the trio, they will be heading to Europe for a 17-date tour. The trek kicks off on Sept. 19 in Antwerp, Germany and runs through Oct. 10, when YBN wraps up the European Takeover Tour in Dublin, Ireland.
