Cordae is not here for the fake activism that he’s been seeing throughout the industry.

On Thursday (Nov. 11), the “Dream In Color” emcee took to Twitter to vent about the entertainers who really don’t care about issues affecting the Black community. “Most of these entertainers only pro black when it’s convenient,” he wrote in a series of tweets. “Or when it’s ‘cool.’ It’s a lot of Oreo ass niggas in this entertainment shit.”

Cordae is definitely one of those artists who has proven that he is for the betterment of the Black community. Last year, he was one of more than 80 protesters who were arrested during a Breonna Taylor protest that took place outside the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.

He and the other demonstrators were subsequently hit with a Felony D charge of intimidating a participant in the legal process. However, in April, Cordae took to Twitter to announce that his charge was dismissed and removed from his record. “My felony finally got expunged today. S/O to my lawyer,” he wrote.

In June, the “Thornton Street” rapper partnered with ESPN and Disney to help fund scholarships for students who attend historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs). He vowed to donate all of the proceeds from his EP, Liberated: Music for the Movement Volume 3, to finance the scholarships.

“So many people need the money more than I do,” Cordae previously said in a press release. “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.”
