Songfacts®:

  • This is the fourth single from rapper Birdman's fourth studio album, Pricele$$. The song is considered the sequel to "Money To Blow," the previous single from the album.
  • Birdman's Cash Money colleagues Drake and Lil Wayne, who featured on "Money To Blow," also appear on this track. Drake told MTV News: "Me, Birdman and Wayne, we got this new song - I guess you could say it's like another 'Money to Blow.' [The] three dudes that brought you the original are coming back, trying to make it just as big."
  • The music video was directed by Gil Green and Derick G and features Drake and Weezy. Rick Ross, Kevin Rudolf and other Young Money members also make cameo appearances. Drake told MTV News: "It's cool, man, to come out here and see the classic Cash Money feel. Everything is really big. It's borderline cartoon. All the best things - the best cars, the best-looking women, the lights. It's one of those videos that's fun to do."
