At just 21, rising rapper YBN Cordae already has plenty of major support. After touring with Juice WRLD, he’s now gearing up to drop a debut album featuring heavyweights like Chance the Rapper, Anderson .Paak, Pusha T, and Meek Mill.
As a teaser, the North Carolina-born MC has shared his collaboration with Lil Chano today. It’s a soulful cut titled “Bad Idea” and sees the two exchanging verses about the rollercoaster that is life.

“I know myself all too well to be a stranger of pain/ Despite it all, we remainin’ the same, I’m just changing the game,” YBN Cordae reflects during his opening verse. For his part, Chance advises, “Do that sh*t before it’s too late, don’t ever the drink the Kool-Aid,” while also bragging, “I had my cake and ate it too/ That sh*t is an acquired taste.”
Check out “Bad Idea” below via its official music video starring both artists.
