Earlier this year, Chance The Rapper told NME that he was moving into a house with James Blake in Los Angeles, where they would collaborate on music together in the home's studio. Though no new collaborations between the pair have surfaced since that announcement (an unreleased version of their "Life Round Here" remix doesn't count), Chance took to Twitter last night to share a song that he recorded in the studio. Listen to "Home Studio (Back Up In This Bitch)" above.

Backed by his live band, The Social Experiment, Chance dips and bobs his way through this funky, short track. He uses a breathless, nasally voice that recalls fellow Lil Wayne devotee Young Thug, and imbues "Home Studio" with a sense of urgency. The Social Experiment concoct a retro funk stomp led by wah-wah guitar, horns and a keyboard, a unique backdrop for a modern hip hop song that nonetheless compliments Chance's crazed rapping.

Revisit the recently-released demo version of Chance and James Blake's "Life Round Here" remix, and head over to Chance The Rapper's Zumic artist page for more of his music, videos and news. The lyrics to "Home Studio (Back Up In This Bitch)" are below.

Chance The Rapper & The Social Experiment "Home Studio (Back Up In This Bitch)" lyrics:

Uh uh uh uh uh
Nana naaaaa

Young black boy
How he got the labels scared?
A&R's like "Chano, you ain't playin fair!"
You gon' set a bad example for the average bear
You a yogi, you should idle while in child's position
I be like, naw, these my sons this prenatal care
I'mma show em how to make it here and make it fair
Take it there they could kill me and I ain't gon' care
You is just an ankle weight, lighter than some angel cake
Sweeter than some maple syrup, easier than Ableton
Make a plate and make it player
Make em play it
Just don't count your sheep before they hatch
You chickens 'fore your eggs or eat your dinner 'fore you say your prayer

Back up in this bitch
I'm back up in this thaaang
I'm back up in this bitch
I'm back up in this bitch
Back up in this bitch
Get it crackin' in this bitch
I'm back up in this bitch

Young tactician
Just got my taxes finished
Beat the tortoise by a hair
In an '04 Ford Taurus
On a spare with a wax finish
Theres a lot of metaphors, you just lack vision
You just bad business
All your shit been lower case
Lower class, lower key
I'm the only minor minority in priority
Sippin' gin and tonic while I plot upon authority
Author of my horoscope, feeling like the oracle
Ain't no rules, nigga
