YBN Cordae connects with Chance the Rapper on “Bad Idea.”
On the nostalgic Bongo ByTheWay production, the North Carolina rapper and Chicago MC trade bars while taking inspiration from Gil Scott-Heron’s “Home Is Where the Hatred Is.”
“It has like good home vibes, good summer vibes, like good nostalgic feeling to it,” YBN told Zane Lowe on Beats 1. “But like, not in a forceful way, ’cause I feel like now everybody’s bringing back the nostalgic way, but in a force. Like, it got to come natural. This one feels real natural.”
