This is the first single from southern rapper Chamillionaire's third studio album, Venom.
The song was Chamillionaire's first hit on the Hot 100 as a lead artist since he topped the list over three years previously with "Ridin."
Chamillionaire told MTV News that this song will be the last time that he will address the haters. "This is probably my last tribute to them," he said. "For now on, man, I'mma think positive and focus on my grind, and I'm not gonna worry about y'all no more. The song, the feeling of it, makes you wanna get outta bed and go get some money."
Chamillionaire told MTV News that he didn't spend much money on the music video. "You still gotta find a way to become creative," he said. "[Director Don Tyler] found a way to add the graphics in there and be creative. [The video] is basically showing me going through what people do in a week's time, in a morning. It's almost an exaggerated look at somebody living an entertainer's life. I wake up, I got a closet with nothing but the best shoes, I got two women in the bed, the baddest car. I'm shooting a commercial, I'm shooting a club scene in a video. I do a talk show. I do everything you can accomplish in a week's time, in a day. [The video] is subliminally saying, 'We're not worried about what haters are saying.'"
The Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize??" was named in March 2009 the official Rock Song of Oklahoma. Four years later, Oklahoma's governor Mary Fallin pulled the tune as the state's official rock song in a move her office said had more to do with priorities than musical taste.
