Cordae Partners with Disney to Fund Historically-Black College Scholarships


Cordae has teamed up with Disney Dreamers Academy and ESPN’s The Undefeated to fund scholarships for underrepresented communities attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The Maryland rapper was asked to appear on the upcoming Liberated/Music for the Movement Vol. 3 EP and chose to donate money to HBCU students, which Disney and The Undefeated then matched.

“So many people need the money more than I do,” Cordae said in a statement. “It’s especially important to me to invest in our youth and the future. Young people are the future of our society and the world, so we must do all we can to ensure they are properly positioned to succeed.”

Grammy-nominated Cordae went to college himself but dropped out of Towson University in 2018 to focus on his music career. He told Highsnobiety in August 2019. “I dropped out of college because I was miserable as fuck and making music was my dream, so having fun is important.”
