YBN Cordae links up with Chance the Rapper for “Bad Idea”

A cut from Cordae’s debut solo project, ‘The Lost Boy.’

YBN Cordae has released “Bad Idea,” a new collab with Chance the Rapper that teases his debut solo project, The Lost Boy.

Cordae has taken a sonic leaf out of Chano’s book for this track, which boasts a soulful chorus and laidback live instrumentation that fans of The Social Experiment will dig. Together, they rap about surviving life’s hardships and the changes they’ve witnessed as they’ve advanced their careers.

“Bad Idea” arrived with a video that begins with a world-weary Cordae, down and out, reminiscing about better times with family and friends—like a cookout with Chance.


The collab seems to have ignited a fast friendship between the two rappers. “It was honestly an honor working with this man @YbnCordae,” Chano tweeted. “He’s extremely talented with a pen and a future legend. Salute man.”

Cordae returned the praise in a tweet that also served to stir up fans waiting for Chano’s new album:
