In just a few days, YBN Cordae will release his new album The Lost Boy.
After teaming up with Chance the Rapper on “Bad Idea,” the North Carolina MC connects with Anderson .Paak on “RNP (Rich Ni**a Problems).” The playful track finds YBN and Anderson exchanging boastful bars over a knocking beat, produced by J. Cole.
“Put your fu**in’ hands up / This the fu**in’ anthem / Smilin’ ’cause I’m young, rich, black, and I’m handsome,” raps YBN, while .Paak adds his soulful stylings.
During an interview with Ebro Darden on Beats 1, YBN opened up about the collaboration. “Anderson .Paak, that’s like my bro, that’s like my best friend outside of music,” he said. “He’s like James Brown and Marvin Gaye. … This joint, we did off the top, like no pen, no pad and it was just fun. It’s just hip-hop.”
The Lost Boy drops Friday. In addition to Chance and Anderson, the project features Ty Dolla $ign, Pusha-T, Meek Mill, and Arin Ray.
