  • Lyrics
  • This song features guest verses from Jme, co-founder of grime collective Boy Better Know, and US rapper Denzel Curry.
  • Tracey told The Independent how Jme rached out to him early on in his career.

    "He's one of the few gatekeepers who supports," he said. "He doesn't need to, he's established and cool with his life, but he does. He's local but he's busy, but when he's around he's up for chilling. When I asked him if he wanted to put a verse on Secure The Bag! he was like 'bro I started writing it already.'"
  • Denzel Curry reminded Tracey just before the Secure The Bag EP was completed that they said they'd do something together. "The third time we met, in LA, he was like 'yeah bro I can spit grime now'," said Tracey "And me and my producer laughed a bit - lovingly - we thought he could give it a try. And he went off."
  • The song features some Pokemon samples - Tracey is a self-confessed anime addict.
