If the Mac Miller x Jay Electronica collaboration on the former’s upcoming album, Watching Movies With The Sound Off, threw you off at first, that’s OK. Why? Because apparently the track, “Suplexes Inside of Complexes and Duplexes“, almost didn’t happen. In an interview with the dude Daniel Isenberg for Nah Right, Mac explained how the whole thing came about at the very last minute. Like, so last minute that it’s surprising it even landed on the album considering it was already done and just about to get mastered.
Here’s how Mac described the situation:
“He sent me the verse two hours before I went in to master it. The album was done, and I was like, ‘Bro, the album is done. Tell me now if you’re gonna do this. No hard feelings if you can’t, I completely understand.’ He was like, ‘I promise you.’ And he would be sending me texts just randomly throughout the whole album process, like, ‘Don’t turn your album in without me.’ The whole time, we’d been talking about doing this record.”
Ha, well, at least Jay came through and indeed appears on the album, which drops this Tuesday (June 18) in case you didn’t know. Head over to Nah Right to read the rest of the interview.
