    If The Lost Boy was the new wave rapper's most substantial test of talent and longevity, YBN Cordae passed with flying colours.

    Both bold and filled with bravado, yet layered and emotional, YBN Cordae is able to convey his desires, hopes, and fears in an ambitious and well-thought out format. A strong debut from an artist who knows that he is capable of long-term success.

    The rapper's skills aren't in question on The Lost Boy, but the album sometimes overshoots in its ambition, aiming for too many styles to hit them all with excellence. It's still a strong collection, and when Cordae strikes a perfect balance of mellow production and lyrical power on standout tracks like "We Gon Make It," it points to even more fully formed work ahead from a strong talent just getting started.

    Encapsulates everything a Gen Z rapper should be aiming for; young gun energy mixed with traditional skill.

    Despite the glossy guestlist, The Lost Boy remains Cordae’s show. At 15 songs, it could have used an edit, another voice in the room telling him to tone it down. But still, it’s an assured debut.

    The YBN lyricist’s debut is almost flawless. While there are times where he seems to celebrate too much and isn’t focusing enough on how heThe YBN lyricist’s debut is almost flawless. While there are times where he seems to celebrate too much and isn’t focusing enough on how he was lost, he does show his grind, his will and his heart. Cordae shows that this is his story, despite the prominent features, and never shies away to display his outstanding, promising rhymes, wordplay, and lyricism. 9/10 = A Expand
