Cordae Partners With Disney & ESPN To Fund HBCU 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. “I feel as though when you’re in such a blessed position, it’s important to pay that forward to be a blessing to others. 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.”

He added, “If I can spark the brain of a few future world leaders and geniuses, I’ll die a happy man.”

Cordae is contributing a Common collaboration called “What’s Life” to the Liberated/ Music for the Movement Vol. 3 EP, which is set to arrive on Friday (June 18) with other songs from Lucky Daye and Chloe Bailey. On the same day, he’ll perform as a special guest on Stephen A. Smith’s Stephen A’s World on ESPN+ to celebrate Juneteenth.
