David Crosby and…Chance The Rapper? The veteran singer-songwriter has indeed teamed with the Chicago MC — for a new Twitter ad that debuted on Monday (June 19).
The spot is a new school/old school goof in which Chance asks his Twitter followers what songs they should play and, amidst other responses, Crosby suggests “anything with real instruments,” also offering to collaborate, telling Chance that “I could up your game.”
Crosby has been outspoken in the past about his low regard for rap.
Crosby has been estranged from periodic bandmates Neil Young, Graham Nash and Stephen Stills during the past couple of years and has been concentrating on solo shows, though nothing is currently booked right now.
