YBN Cordae stopped in Atlanta on his Lost Boy in America tour February 22nd.  The Grammy nominated rapper packed the house with fans of his first studio album “The Lost Boy.”  People bought merch and took pictures while they waited for the long lines of the sold out Center-Stage show to dwindle and for the performers to take the stage.

First up was Lonr and he did not disappoint.  The L.A. born, Grammy nominated songwriter and H.E.R catalogue contributor, has been making his name as a singer recently, releasing his singles A.M. and Safe Zone in 2019. He performed them both as well as a few more songs, to the crowd’s enjoyment.  His high energy while performing  kept the crowd engaged and definitely primed them up for 24kGoldn.

Another time he stopped to acknowledge his fallen friend Juice Wrld and play a verse from his smash single “Lucid Dreams.”  He performed his final song of the night with a little help, bringing up a participant from the crowd to help him perform the Anderson .Paak featured “RNP.” They both seem to have enjoyed themselves. Cordae closed the show by inducting everyone into the day one fan club and vowing to be back to “sell out that stadium across the street.”
