Songfacts®:

  • This song was by produced by Ty Fyffe and features T-Pain.
  • Busta told HipHop.com: "This record was made to inspire the common man to keep hustlin', even though it's difficult to survive out there right now. None of us are spared the struggle with this economic travesty. There was a time when I would listen to music to escape the bulls--t. Music was my drug - apart from weed, but I haven't smoked any of that since March. I only smoke these [cigarettes] now, and I probably won't be doin' that much longer with them costing so much."
  • T-Pain also features in the music video, directed by Busta's longtime collaborator Hype Williams. Shot through a fishlens, the clip shows the guys rapping through several wardrobe changes.
