  • Lyrics
  • This DJ Mustard and Key Wane-produced track finds an introspective Sean questioning his existence and confronting the weight of expectation now he's famous.
  • Lil Wayne raps the second verse, in which he wonders if Sean would get the recognition he deserves if he had ink on his body:

    I feel like Sean don't get enough shine
    Is it because he ain't got the tattoos?
    He ain't throwing up signs?


    Sean told MTV News that Wayne's co-sign didn't come at his request. "I didn't have a conversation with him prior to the verse, really, about what we was gonna rap about," he said. "I played the song for him, and then he did his verse, and the next day, we were in the studio together and he gave it to me. He was just like, 'You know, man, I meant every word of this verse. You one of my favorites. You one of the best.'"
