Both Danger Mouse and Joe Fox are frequent collaborators on A.L.L.A.
, appearing on several tracks, including this psychedelic rump shaker. Rocky told Complex
magazine that psychedelic music healed him after the death of his friend and mentor A$AP Yams in January 2015.
"Stuff like the The Mysterians, '96 Tears
,'" he said. "That's all the stuff I love. I love classic rock. Take the Doors—those organs. It's why I love Danger Mouse's aesthetic."
This song finds A$AP Rocky and Schoolboy Q reuniting. The two rappers previously collaborated on "Hands on the Wheel" from Schoolboy Q's 2013 Habits album, "Californication" a bonus track from the West Coast rapper's Oxymoron project, "Brand New Guy" from ASAP Rocky's Live. Love. ASAP LP and "PMW (All I Really Need)", from the New York rhymer's 2013 set, Long. Live. ASAP.
The song interpolates Dutch electronic group TAPP's 1994 club banger "Shake that Ass."
The whole song was done in one night. Joe Fox recalled to The Fader: "Schoolboy Q wrote his rap and put it down, Rocky wrote his rap and put it down, and then I just added that little hook and went to sleep."
