Songfacts®:

  • In this song 50 Cent recounts some of his adventures when he was in an intoxicated state, during his younger days.
  • 50 Cent pilfered the song's beat from Dr. Dre's studio sessions with Eminem. He explained to MTV News: "I did a song produced by Dr. Dre. I got the production from Detroit, because Dre was working with Em right before I got out there. I just missed him. I went through Em's computer and found what I needed. Yes, I did. I got me the record I needed. I was like, 'Wait till they hear this.' I wrote it; Em heard it. He was like, 'You gotta keep that for yourself. This is too crazy.' First, I think he was gonna take it from me, then he was like, 'He gotta use that for himself.'"
