This was the sixth collaboration between Ross and Jay, which started with "Hustlin'
" from Rozay's 2006 debut album Port of Miami
. The hook-up was followed by such song's as the Hova and Dre team-up "3 Kings
" and "F—WithMeYouKnowIGotIt," off the Roc Nation boss' Magna Carta Holy Grail
LP. "Me coming into the game in '06 off of my first single, which caused a big war, at the end of the day, it was the conversations I had with Jay Z that ultimately made me choose Def Jam Records," Ross told MTV News.
"Ever since then I always came to the table with new records to let him check me. From my second album, to my third and fourth, anytime I needed a collaboration, he always made it happen. He's been out of the country [for] some events, I've [called] him last minute and he made it happens. So there's was always been that genuine respect."
