MILF

Album: Hall of Fame (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • The song title stands for "Mom I Like to F--k". No one has nailed down the origin of the acronym but it was popularized by Jennifer Coolidge's character, "Stifler's Mom" in the hit movie series American Pie.
  • Big Sean recruited Nicki Minaj and Juicy J for this Da Internz produced slinky ode to MILFs. He explained at the album's listening party that his aim was to recreate the fun of his hit stripper anthem "Dance (A$$)," even re-using its signature handclaps.

    Da Internz produced "Dance (A$$)," whilst Nicki Minaj featured on the remix.
  • Sean told MTV News that he didn't take too kindly to his single mom's boyfriends, and now that he's dated a few single moms himself, he sees the other side. "When I was a young kid and I saw my mom with boyfriends, I used to hate her being with boyfriends," Sean explained. "It's crazy how the tables turn."

    "I just wanted to convey that message in a song. I just wanted to get that moment, because that's a moment in society. That's something that really goes on, and that's what the song is about," he added. "It's just about a crazy-ass mom, going wild and I do think it's funny, but I think it's real as hell too. And that's what I try to do with every song on the album, just keep it real as possible."
