Album: Graffiti (2009)
Charted: 88

Songfacts®:

  • Brown told MTV News about this homage to throwing money at hot girls, cars and cribs: "This is me and Plies. It's kind of a bragging record, though, it's like talking about stuntin' with money and everything. It kind of ties into the movie I got, called The Takers, it's coming out in February. It's a bank-robber movie, that's my character, so what I do: throwin' up my cash, acting like money ain't a thing. The Runners did that joint, DJ Khaled got on the front for me. He blazes it when he get on there. 'We're the best!'"
