Apparently, Miller originally wanted the Roc Nation emcee on “Eggs Aisle,” a track that appears from Miller’s Live From Space album. “‘Eggs Aisle’ is a beat that [producer E-Dan] sent over and I loved it off top, made the song real quickly,” said Mac. “Initially I was gonna get Jay Electronica on that record.”
Miller continued, “I think what happened was ‘Someone Like You’ and ‘Eggs Aisle’ had a similar soundscape to them,” he said. “They had similar synths in there, so it was one or the another for us when we were cutting tracks.”
“When I sent him ‘Suplexes’ he was like, ‘This is the one,’ which was dope to me because it was a sensei/grasshopper moment when Jay Electronica picks my beat over E.Dan’s,” said Mac, laughing. “So [‘Eggs Aisle’] got pushed to the side, but something like this is great to get its life back.”
