  • "Kika" continues 6ixnine's trend for song titles containing made-up words that aren't included in the lyrics. Others include "Keke" and "Tati."
  • The song features Tory Lanez singing a catchy hook. Both he and 6ix9ine assert that they have achieved their elevated status in the music industry without help from anybody else.

    I do my own stunts, Jackie Chan with it

    Hong Kong martial actor Jackie Chan is renowned for having performed most of his own stunts throughout his film career.
  • The island-themed steel drum instrumentation is courtesy of Scott Storch. The Canadian producer was big in the 2000s, helming such hits as Chris Brown's "Run It!," Mario's "Let Me Love You" and Beyonce's "Baby Boy."
  • The song's use of steel drum instrumentation may be a poke at Kodak Black's "Zeze," which utilizes the same instrument. Some media outlets speculated that the "Zeze" title was a jab at 6ix9ine's propensity for dropping tracks with titles comprising made up four-letter words.
