  • This song finds Rocky linking up with Drake and Kendrick Lamar as they spit rhymes about their loves for bad women, whilst 2 Chainz performs the hook. Rocky, Lamar and 2 Chainz previously worked together on the "Club Paradise" tour, but it was the Harlem MC's first collaboration with Drake. The song was premiered by Rocky with Lamar on October 25, 2012 at the Oakland, California venue during his LongLiveASAP Tour.
  • The song's elastic beat was created by Drake under the pseudonym C. Papi, along with the Toronto MC's frequent collaborator, Noah "40" Shebib.
  • Asked by Rolling Stone how this song came together, Rocky replied: "Well, 2 Chainz was for sure going to do the hook. It was all about chemistry, because you know, even though Drake is a big pop artist, he can spit his ass off, Kendrick Lamar is a fu--ing spitter. We all just wanted to make a party track and have fun. And that's a true story – I fu--ed a lot of bitches. I got a fu--ing problem."
  • This won Best Collaboration at the 2013 BET Awards. The ceremony celebrates black musicians, actors and athletes as part of the US cable TV network, Black Entertainment Television.

Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
