Songfacts®:

  • This anthem is dedicated to the grind of Sean's home city of Detroit. It features verses from Detroit's own, CTE/Atlantic Records' Doughboyz Cashout, and Jeezy, whom Sean said of at the album's listening party, "gets more love in Detroit than people from Detroit."

  • Sean's childhood friend and frequent collaborator, Key Wane, supplied the beat and additional vocals for the track.
