  • Lyrics
  • This is a track from The Adventures Of Bobby Ray, the debut album of rapper B.o.B, whose real name is Bobby Simmons. The song features fellow Atlanta artists T.I. and Playboy Tre and originally featured on his May 25th mixtape without T.I.
  • B.o.B told Artist Direct how the song changed from the mixtape to the album version: "Obviously, it's got T.I.'s verse on it. We remixed it and mastered it. It was never mastered before [Laughs]. We tightened up everything, gave it a little more bump and made it sound better. We actually shot a video for it as well, and that'll add more life to the song. It's definitely my Decatur song; it's my down-south club song. On the actual main 12 tracks, it's the only song on the album that's like that. I feel like I've got to revisit the 'Haterz' type of scene. It's something that came naturally. I really got bored just doing traditional cliché down-south club music. It really just came out of me when I was recording. The attitude that you feel when you hear it is what I feel like. I was laughing and getting hyped all by myself. That's what you have to channel when you make music. Whatever you feel when you're making it is what the listener is going to feel."
