Songfacts®:

  • This street single features Snoop Dogg, whom 50 first hooked up with in 2003 on his "P.I.M.P" remix, and Young Jeezy, who the G-Unit frontman is collaborating with for the first time. "Jeezy, that was overdue. Me and Snoop had a relationship since '03," 50 Cent said to MTV News "Having him work on this project, it just fit. Perfect timing."
  • The Eif Rivera directed video also features Snoop Dogg and Jeezy as well as a Maybach Music Group chain. Some eyebrows were raised at a piece promoting Fif's rival rapper, Rick Ross. "It came from a jeweler. Jewelers, they made it. Yeah, we got it and ended up putting it in the video," he explained. "That's what rappers do: rappers put jewelry in videos. I thought it would be unexpected."
  • 50 looked to "Let's Get It," a collaboration track between Diddy, G. Dep and Black Rob for inspiration for the video. The song served as a single for Puff's 2001 The Saga Continues... album. "When I played the song for Eif [Rivera] what I did was I took other music videos that had a similar vibe," 50 told MTV News .

    He added that he wanted to emulate the cohesiveness of the stylish Bad Boy clip. "The video had three people that had a strong presence at the moment: Black Rob and then Puff and then G. Dep," he explained. "It was cool to see those three work together."
