This is the first single from Breakfast, the debut full-length album from alternative Hip-Hop duo Chiddy Bang. The song features samples from the Swedish pop duo Icona Pop.
Chidera "Chiddy" Anamege, who makes up one half of the duo, broke the world record for the longest freestyle on April 28, 2011. His freestyle lasted 9 hours, 18 minutes, and 22 seconds, supported by looped beats played by Xaphoon, beating the previous longest time by three minutes. The duo debuted this tune after successfully completing the record attempt.
Chiddy explained the story behind the album title to Karmaloop.com
: "It's symbolic because it's our first official offering to the world – our first meal of the day, so to speak. And breakfast is such an important meal. Plus, who can really hate on breakfast? You can eat it any time. You can't really eat dinner or lunch in the morning, but you can eat breakfast all day."
Chiddy recalled to UK newspaper The Sun: "Manners was a typical Chiddy Bang writing session. Xaph had some stems from this Swedish group Icona Pop. He chopped it into a beat I thought was dope so we recorded it."
