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."
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
