Cordova, the rising rap star out of Iowa is certainly a visionary and is genuinely trying to help artists around him. In the short period of less than 2 years, Cordova has amassed great statistics. He has achieved close to a 500k stream aggregate for all platforms, landed on multiple DJ sets on Sirius XM, and been featured on playlist curations on Spotify and Apple music. Cordova also recently went to his state’s capital city, Des Moines, and performed as an opener for Lil Durk. He said it was a fun show and a great experience, but he still longs to tour with bigger artists eventually.
As for the future, Cordova hopes to put out only solo singles until his project drops in late June. “I am just having fun and blocking out the negative noise,” said Cordova. ‘’At the end of the day music is an expression of your life. I am at the point where I am just having fun with it,” he adds. Be on the lookout for his new singles dropping soon and his new album Overnight Flights dropping late June.
He is a new artist in a niche sub-genre trying to do what many rappers in the same style have done before him. He wants to encapsulate a new sound and bring it to the table. All the while, he enjoys helping artists in an unheard and untapped part of the country.
While Cordova has faced the obstacle of criticism for his approach to music, he perseveres. Cordova tried to get big features right off the bat, which worked well in networking but not well for perception. Cordova is working hard to promote his solo singles to show he has his unique sound and talent that people will like. The haters were always there at the beginning for Cordova, but he kept going.
The numbers speak for themselves. With 500k total streams in less than 2 years, he has added so many cool features for the artist he will sign to his label. Any IG page, Times Square billboard, YouTube promo, or anything else you need, Cordova has this information all at his fingertips. Cordova is a businessman at heart and loves networking and people.
His perspective is different than most because he has had more experience with music than the younger generation. He has lived through the early stages of Eminem and then Nelly, Rick Ross in 2006, and the Lil Wayne mixtape era. Yet, he has also listened to artists today, such as Yeat. He has a love and ear for music that stretches over 2 decades, so he knows when something sounds different and unique.
