According to a number of sources, M.I.A. was originally supposed to be featured on “Drive Slow.” Maya turned down the opportunity due to a busy schedule. The song wound up featuring GLC and Paul Wall. Although Yeezy and Maya have never collaborated in an official capacity, he did sample her vocals for T.I.’s “Swagga Like Us,” which they later performed together at the 2009 Grammys.
