Gotta Lotta

Charted: 100

Songfacts®:

  • This TM88-produced banger is from 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne's joint project ColleGrove. The song finds the pair bragging about being at the top of their game and how dope they both are.
  • Lil Wayne recalled to Genius: "The idea for this song came from me being young. Remember the video station The Box where you could just call in and request your favorite video?

    If too many people called in, the video could come on back to back. And so, it was a song called 'Scatman' that always came on. And it fast. I used to remember the song and love it! And I made something of it."

    "Scatman (Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop)" was a 1995 hit tune by Scatman John in which he used his statter as the basis for the recording. Scatman John Paul Larkin died from lung cancer at this home in LA in December 1999.
