“I hate to say this but we were actually working on an EP,” Flying Lotus said on Twitter. “There were more songs that I haven’t even heard.”
Flying Lotus and many other artists in the Hip Hop community payed their respects to MF Doom on social media following the announcement of his death. In December, fans were able to hear a taste of Flying Lotus and MF Doom’s collaboration with the single “Lunch Break.” The song came as part of the Grand Theft Auto Online update The Cayo Perico Heist.
“Lunch Break” had been the first official collaboration between Flying Lotus and MF Doom that had been released. The status of other songs the pair could have worked on has not been revealed, so it is unknown if Flying Lotus would be able to complete the EP.
