Juice WRLD's Dark Melodies Woo The Crowd On His First Headlining Tour

It was still light out and the line to enter the Knockdown Center in Queens had come to a standstill. Security was backed up and high school kids dressed to clout ideal were already restless— an ordinary start to any SoundCloud rapper’s concert.

These fans, many in Juice WRLD Tour graphic tees, designer fanny packs buckled across their chests, were actively posting photos the brick smokestacks that rose about the former glass factory turned art gallery/concert venue. This backdrop to the concert was as much a clout ideal as the fans’ expensive street gear. The factory is located at the end a long avenue at the border gentrified Brooklyn and Queens. It’s a hip, gritty neighborhood with rapidly changing demographics, an image mirrored in the increasingly white attendance at  hip-hop concerts, particularly at the concerts SoundCloud rappers.

Before the bulk the fans had passed security, the show had already begun. The concert was opened by a rotating cast DJs hyping the crowd to hits like Playboi Carti’s “wokeuplikethis*”, Drake’s “Nonstop,” a Tekashi69 medley, and cuts f the newly-released Astroworld. This opening soundtrack gave the crowd the feeling a big party. People danced and strangers mingled all across the spacious factory. Mosh pits swelled, spewing beer and smoke that was equal parts weed and Juul into the air.

The DJ openers successfully hyped the crowd so that by the time opener Blake took the stage, it didn’t matter that his songs went largely unrecognized. His hit “Flexin” sustained the momentum, a feat attributable to its producer’s unique pairing a rock-pop guitar riff with the classic blasted-out SoundCloud bass. The biggest moments for him instead came when he paid tribute to New York by playing A$AP Rocky’s song  “Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2.”

The opening crew DJs returned periodically to keep the crowd warm between sets, including a surprising yet brief set by NY’s own Funkmaster Flex. Once a gatekeeper to the charts, Flex went largely unrecognized by the audience (except for stray parental chaperones struggling to snap a picture him on their phones)– a sign the times.

After Blake, Lil Mosey came on and jumped straight into his hit “Bo Pack,” followed by a new, unreleased song. He was one the more anticipated headliners and seemed emboldened by the pre-show chants calling him to the stage. The sixteen-year-old confidently directed the crowd to dance, chant, and rap through the chorus his songs.

Like every performer that night, including Juice WRLD, Mosey paid tribute to the late XXXTentacion. Whether it was the more brash, aggressive SoundCloud screeds, or newer hits like “Moonlight,” the crowd was immediately reinvigorated at the start any XXXTentaction track. This concert revealed how deeply he influenced the SoundCloud generation, and presaged a Tupac-like reverence that is sure to become the norm whenever XXXTentacion’s music is played at live shows.

Lil Mosey was followed by YBN Cordae, YBN collective’s lyrical rapper. He fit the show less in content than in style; his affect and command the crowd were completely out sync with the other performers. YBN Cordae’s was precise and technical, a throwback to a type concert Queens doesn’t see anymore. Smooth, spacious beats and deft lyricism left the crowd a little confused about how to dance. The room found harmony again with his performance “Kung Fu,” a bouncy, stylish trap hit produced by DayTrip.

The final, surprise act was Kodie Shane. Her set was pop-friendly and thematically diverse, and peaked with a colorful rendition the sugary “Drip On My Walk.” Unfortunately, she also faced the ire a crowd fed up with a numerous openers and long performances. By the time she took the stage, concertgoers were idling around the huge venue space and at one point booed her, asking for Juice WRLD to replace her.

When Juice WRLD finally arrived, the crowd immediately forgot their frustration, in part because he rewarded their patience by opening with the hit “Lucid Dreams.” Shortly afterward, he followed it with “All Girls Are the Same,” another dejected rap about love lost. This kind  woozy heartbreak might suggest a denouement rather than a jumpstart to the set, but it’s a song that (surprisingly) performs just as well with screams and mosh-pits. 

Juice WRLD’s set was an interesting visual counterpoint to the subtler forms virality that he’s cultivated as a SoundCloud rapper. Juice WRLD is unique in that he has, so far, eschewed brassy, visual forms Soundcloud virality. No crashed sports cars on Instagram, no face tattoos, and he rocks only lightly colored dreadlocks. His conceits to that culture are largely confined to artistic collaborations. These collaborations, in turn, are done without conforming to conventional SoundCloud rap aesthetics. For example, the Cole Bennett-directed music video for “All Girls Are the Same” forgoes the colorful, zany effects and cheesy transitions Bennet has popularized, replacing them with monochromatic long shots meant to portray Juice WRLD’s depressed mind. The set became an embrace the punk, SoundCloud culture, where even depression can become something to bounce to. Juice WRLD’s performance managed to affirm darkness in his music and animate the crowd to the melody his suffering.

YBN Cordae Is Bridging The Generational Rap Gap

As the game is more divided now than it arguably ever has been, the younger generation listeners is far more interested in melody than lyrics. For artists that can combine a conscious approach with a particularly vibey atmosphere, they’re fering the best both worlds. Not very many rappers can say that they’re hitting on both categories, YBN Cordae is one the few that has the ability to (adeptly) delve into both. His ties to YBN Nahmir, YBN Almighty Jay, and the remainder his YBN crew enable him to focus on melody and creating hype music. However, his drive to become the best to have ever picked up a microphone pushes him further into a lyrical sphere.

With only a few releases under his belt in “Kung Fu,” “Fighting Temptations,” “Old N—as,” and a freestyle over Eminem’s “My Name Is,” the 20-year-old Maryland native is just now familiarizing himself with the spotlight. With his head screwed on tight, Cordae feels little pressure as he sets goals for himself that are higher than anybody else’s expectations. 

Truly wanting to be the best in the world, the YBN member is gearing up to release the best project the year. Not going into too much detail about it, his passion makes me believe that he truly means it when he says it’s going to be some “more dope shit.” We spoke with YBN Cordae to gauge where he’s headed and how he’s gotten this far in only a few months. Our interview is below.


HotNewHipHopHey Cordae – what’s up?

YBN Cordae: What’s good bro, how are you?

I’m very good, it’s nice to speak to you. I wanna ask a bit about the YBN crew because y’all are super tight and have very different approaches to music. You’re definitely the most lyrical the bunch. What did you grow up listening to in order to get you to that stage lyrically?

I was listening to was a lot like, Nas, Big L, Rakim, Jay-Z and like Kanye, Kendrick, J. Cole. Guys that nature. From there, I would do my own research based on YouTube. If you find one thing, you can get lost in the “recommended” section. I pretty much did my research through that. But you know, obviously the Travis Scott’s, Kendrick Lamar’s and J. Cole’s had a big influence. T.I. had a big influence on me as well. Plus the cats I’m working with now like 21 Savage and everybody. Just a combination all that.

For a 20-year-old to be making the kind music you do, you can tell you’ve been listening to a lot different sources.

Yeah, for sure.

In terms the YBN crew, I consider you guys to be somewhat a genius crew because every rap fan is bound to like one your sounds. There’s Nahmir who’s catering to the street sound, there’s Jay who’s like the viral internet celebrity, and then there’s you who’s doing the lyrical stuff, catering to another group. Was that a conscious decision that you guys made or was it more organic?
Nah, it just happened that way, dog. We didn’t think about it like, “yo, you do this style, I do this style”, but together, we all perfect. It’s just literally what our individual style is and combined, we like to call ourselves the Golden State] Warriors ’cause all us cater to like a completely different audience. We’re all so dope and so different, it makes us the perfect balance.
The comparison to the Warriors makes sense because you guys are kind like a super team. The three you are on the come-up at the same time and y’all are doing big things. Is there any sort competition between you, Nahmir, Jay, and others in the YBN crew to outperform one another?
Oh yeah, for sure. It’s friendly competition. So like Nahmir will go in the stu and make a hit and it’s gonna wanna make me go to the studio that same day and get to cooking, making my best work. If Nahmir goes super hard it’s gonna wanna make me go hard too. We created a culture work ethic because our friendly competition. And it’s not necessarily like, we won’t be competing with each other on that level but it’s just a creative quality level. One us could go in there and freestyle a song in like 5 minutes and I’ll be like “you know what, I like this song, I’m ’bout to freestyle too.”
Your response to J. Cole’s “1985” was a lot people’s introduction to you earlier this year. Many had possibly heard about you but hadn’t been exposed to a song before that. What pushed you to record “Old N*****]” cause it sounds like it’s straight from the heart?
I was just inspired by what J. Cole had said. It sparked a creative mindset and it sparked a conversation and I always have conversations that cater to that so it was effortless. I wrote that in literally 10 minutes. It was dope.
What are you most excited about being on tour with Juice WRLD, Lil Mosey and guys like that?
Just performing in front fans and seeing them every day. It’s one thing on the internet and it’s another thing for like face-to-face interaction with fans. And they’re all dope artists too so it’s dope.
A lot people are saying that out all the rappers coming up right now, you’re gonna be the one to bridge the generational gap. Does that come with any pressure?
Honestly, it’s no pressure. I always knew I was gonna do that. I set my own goals higher than what anybody else has set for me. 
I also think your head is screwed on correctly. How do you stay grounded like that?
I got a good team around me. I got OG’s, I got a dope management team, I got dope people around me. You know what I’m saying? All that keeps me grounded and keeps my head on straight. I just got my own balance and I’ve been through a lot shit in my life and I lost a lot shit so I don’t wanna lose that again. I just want it so bad. I wanna be the best so bad. I got tunnel vision. I’m not about to let no stupid shit get in the way.
On the topic stupid shit, I wanted to ask about whatever is going on with IDK because, in the past, he’s shouted you out but…
Oh nah, that’s my homie. He’s just ten trolling and shit. That’s my homie. Not even f no trolling shit, it’s just funny. That’s my guy. 
I had a feeling because I saw that comment about the YBN Cordae diss track coming out and I was like “what the hell, I’ve seen these two dudes shout each other out before.” 
Yeah, he’s from Maryland. We both from Maryland so that’s my guy. He commented that and told me about it and I was laughing. Ain’t nobody worried about that. He was just being funny. We be downing on each other all the time.
I have to ask… What was your reaction when you found out about Jay and Blac Chyna?
I was like “Man, what the fuck!?” Like “bruh, get the fuck outta here!” I was like “shut up” and then to like see it everyday and shit. It’s just funny, dog. It’s just mad funny.
Nahmir was on the XXL Freshman List this year and your name keeps coming up next to Juice WRLD for the 2019 list. Obviously, that’s in a year but what would it mean for you to make that XXL Freshman list? 
It would be dope, it would be dope. It’s a goal for sure, it’s a goal for sure.
I feel like you would kill the freestyle and cypher material.
Yeah, I’ma have the best one! I’ma have the best one, by far.
This year, you’ve only dropped a few songs overall. What’s the first Cordae project going to sound like and do you have any plans on when it’s going to come out?
I don’t know when it’s gonna come out but I’m working on it now and it’s beautiful. 
When you get in the studio, what’s your process like? Do you have any weird rituals or habits or anything?
Nah, I just go in there and record. I listen to the beat and I start freestyling and get a hang my flow and after that, I just hit record. 
If you could listen to one album for the rest your life, which would it be?
Either Kanye West’s Graduation or… actually probably Kanye West’s Graduation.
Last week you dropped “Kung Fu.” What can we expect moving forward from you?
More dope music, bro. More dope singles and the best project the year. Dope shit.
I’ll let you chill with your family but thanks for taking a few minutesto talk to me, bro. You’ve got a big future ahead you. God bless.
I appreciate you, bro. God bless you.
