Rap Artist Cordae Partners with Disney to Support HBCUs

By Briasia Russ

Cordae has partnered with Disney Dreamers Academy at Walt Disney World and ESPN’s The Undefeated to give scholarships to youth that come from underrepresented communities and are admitted to HBCUs.  

According to HBCU Lifestyle, Cordae was inspired to fund scholarships after the completion of his recent album. Following the offer to be part of the Liberate EP, the rap artist responded quickly by deciding use the proceeds from his album release to fund the scholarships 

“So many people need the money more than I do.  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,” the artist said. “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.  If I can spark the brain of a few future world leaders and geniuses, I’ll die a happy man.” 

In correspondence of sharing a passion to impact the underrepresented youth, Disney Dreamers Academy and The Undefeated decided to match Cordae’s energy. HBCU Lifestyle reports that the artist will appear as a special guest on the ESPN+ series Stephen A’s World.   

Cordae will also hit the stage with her single “What’s Life”, and will have the honor of presenting an award at ESPN’s Sports Humanitarian Awards.
