Popular American Rapper Cordae Discusses Being A Millionaire & Says His Life Is A “Social Experiment”.
Cordae says he’s still not adjusted to being wealthy and that his life is “an ongoing social experiment.”
Cordae discussed his newfound wealth during an interview with Ebro Darden on Apple Music 1, Saturday, admitting that he views his lifestyle as a “social experiment.” Cordae released his latest album, From a Bird’s Eye View, earlier this month.
“I’m kind of living in like an ongoing social experiment,” Cordae explained. “Because you take somebody from not having much and from humble beginnings, and then within a couple of years, you give them fame, you give them a bunch of spotlight, to everybody’s watching everything they doing in they life, and you give them money.”
He added that he was so worried about squandering his wealth, that he spent years living with his manager despite having enough money to move out.
“I’m still living in this social experiment of me not having anything,” he continued. “And now I have access to money, to millions of dollars. And it became fearful almost for me, I’m like, oh, I have this, I’m able to accumulate this amount of money, and I’m just being repugnant with it, not trying to spend anything, not enjoying myself, not treating myself to anything.
“That’s how I was my first couple of years, I was still living with my manager when I didn’t have to, I was a millionaire living with my manager, just out of fear of blowing, because you hear so many stories about all this living beyond they means, blowing all they money, all of these things. So I was a super extremist with it.”
