Emilio Rojas dropped Life Got In The Way after taking some time to process some personal experiences. The album's lead single, "The Cost," was inspired by a past relationship with a woman he describes as an "amazing, beautiful, crazy girl from Queens."
You know, when you’re jealous and your boyfriend is an artist who’s about to go on tour, the first thing you think of is “you’re gonna be f**king bi**hes on tour!” So, you know, she’s throwing plates, she’s going to la bruja and sh*t and getting spells cast and I’m walking in the apartment and there’s bowls of water in the corner and sh*t. We ended up breaking up right before I left for tour and this is two days before and she’s in the room packing her sh*t and !llmind sent me this beat.
