One week out from the release of his LP USEE4YOURSELF, rapper IDK has joined forces with Young Thug on the new single “PradadaBang.” Over trap synths, the track takes aim at materialistic clout-chasers, who “want Birkins and shit, when [they] ain’t even got a house,” IDK raps. The song follows the rapper’s recent succession of releases, including this month’s “Peloton” and “Shoot My Shot” with Offset, which dropped in April.
While awaiting the debut of his LP, IDK has kept busy with other projects. Earlier this year, he premiered an Apple Music 1 radio show called Radio Clue, an exploration into the connection between music and memory. The rapper also recently announced that applications were open for his “No Label Academy,” a music business course for BIPOC students at Harvard University that will take place in August. Featured students in the program include Rico Nasty and IDK’s “King Alfred” collaborator, Lil Yachty.
“The idea of love is a complicated thing,” IDK wrote in a caption announcing the album on Instagram. “It’s even more complicated for a black man in an environment that limits your vulnerability.”
