Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Sean "Slug" Daley rapping about how people have a knee jerk to artists like Kanye West who shows passion as a human. He explained to Artist Direct: "Kanye, he's really the best example. Because the media industrial complex totally jumped on Kanye and turned him into some sort of, almost a bad guy. And it's like this dude is not a bad guy. This dude is just a passionate guy. I don't know what to say about that. I don't know that the world is ever not going to be intimidated by passion."
