Accompanied by two guitars and a cajón, the Atlanta rapper lent his vocals for Billy Ray Cyrus’ part of the remix. Mayer commended Nas X and the track’s arrangement, saying, “They say a great song is evidence by being able to play it on just a guitar. That proves the song is great.”
Prior to the performance, the two entertained the nearly 10,000 viewers with a quick game called “Who Dat?” where they would guess famous personalities from their time. Mayer and Nas X were quizzed on musicians, entertainers and even pop culture references mostly known to people belonging to either the late Gen X or Gen Z groups. After leaving the singer-songwriter’s house, Nas X proceeded to comment on the livestream that he had stolen something from Mayer’s property, prompting him and the crew to erupt in laughter.
