Cordell Drake, born on April 4th of 1984, was born and raised in Spokane, Washington. Cordell didn't stray far from Spokane as a youngster, witnessing first-hand the influence of hip hop and the disaster brought by drugs in the streets of the city. Nearing the end of his tenure at John R. Rogers High School, Cordell began writing lyrics and finding a deep passion as an emcee. He had known a deep love for music his entire life, and is so musically inclined that he can play nearly any instrument that's placed in front of him. After five years of being an amateur emcee and learning the ropes, Cordell Drake made the decision to take everything to another level. He began producing and engineering while developing his skills behind a mic. Cordell found his way on a stage, testing his ability to perform in front of a live audience, and he enjoyed everything about it. Over the next twelve years, Cordell Drake would see his name alongside some of the biggest names in hip hop- Bone Thugs -N- Harmony, Afro Man, E-40, Twista, Tech N9ne, DMX, Too Short, and many more!
