Songfacts®:

  • In rap music, flossing means showing off your expensive purchases. This braggadocio track finds AJ Tracey celebrating his success by going on a shopping spree.

    We don't behave we don't know about cost
    I hit the shops, pick a drop, and I floss


    The rapper is flaunting the jewelry and high-end clothing he splashed out on.
  • Tracey explained to Apple Music why he likes bragging on records. "It's a happy subject rather than talking about violence, doom and gloom and the woes of my life. I like talking about things that make people feel happy and energetic. Hopefully that inspires people to go hard and get the things they want."
  • MoStack and Not3S each spit a guest verse on the track.

    Tracey previously worked with his fellow London rapper Mostack when the two were the featured artists on Steel Banglez's "Fashion Week" single.

    Nigerian-British singer-rapper Not3s has collaborated with AJ Tracey on several previous occasions, most notably on the 2018 single "Butterflies."
  • Tracey produced the song along with The Elements. They previously worked together on Steel Banglez's "Fashion Week."
