Album: Live From The Underground (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This was the first song released from the southern Hip-Hop musician and record producer Big K.R.I.T.'s debut studio album, Live From The Underground. The song finds him collaborating with Memphis rap duo 8Ball & MJG. K.R.I.T. told The Boombox he was impressed with the Hip-Hop pair's work ethic. "These O.G.s, they're workaholics, and they're thorough with their work ethic," he said. "So as soon as I sent them the record, I got their verses back immediately from 8Ball and MJG. And it's crazy because I've been talking about doing a song with them forever and working with them, and I had an opportunity to get them on my first single and this album."
  • The song also features K.R.I.T's Def Jam label mate 2 Chainz. "I had an opportunity to feature 2 Chainz, because 2 Chainz reached out and looked out for me on record called 'Pimps' that was on Codeine Cowboy also featuring Bun B as well," he told The Boombox. "That was before a lot of this was popping off for me, and so it's just me showing love and it was just me really representing what southern hip-hop sounded like to really feature two legends and an up-and-coming O.G. as well."
