This song was originally recorded for Big Sean's mixtape Detroit with a verse by French Montana. The rapper then laid down a remix for the deluxe version of his sophomore album, Hall of Fame, featuring 2 Chainz, Meek Mill and Earlly Mac. Sean told Billboard magazine: "2 Chainz is on there talking about how he got 'robbed,' or how people talked about how he got robbed. There's a very important verse from him on it."
"Mula" (or "Moolah") is an English slang term meaning "lots of money." The inspiration for the song was when Big Sean met Birdman at the SXSW Music Festival, and the Cash Money Records co-founder told him "Ain't nothing more important than the mula."
