Listen: Mac Miller, Jay Electronica Enchant on “Suplexes Inside Of Complexes And Duplexes”


/ June 8, 2013

Jay Electronica emerged from his secret hiding lair to lay down a verse on Mac Miller’s upcoming LP, Watching Movies With The Sound Off. The end result is “Suplexes Inside Of Complexes And Duplexes,” which surfaces online today.

The content of “Suplexes Inside Of Complexes And Duplexes” is grim. Macadelic fights the devil as he tries to find the holy grail on the track. Miller’s production alias Larry Fisherman tweaks the Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever” whistle beneath Jay Elect’s gruff delivery on all things enchanted.

“My Cinderella in her carriage by the doorway/ Her ruby slipper made the wizard send the scarecrow/ And the lion through the forest/ To the wicked witch’s fortress where she scorched them in the foreplay,” raps Electronica, a hip-hop commodity since 2009 that has yet to release a debut LP. “Remember that? He said he’d fight the box to see the wizard/ When he was visited by Dorothy who came here on a blizzard/ Now the whole world’s in color, still…” Worthy of several spins for the wordplay alone.

Miller’s Watching Movies With The Sound Off is out June 18.
