In a Songfacts interview with Ziek McCarter
, he said of this song: "The intention was to really process and create a positive momentum from a traumatic experience in my life. I wasn't really speaking to politics. It alludes to the nature of police brutality, as well as other things. Poverty. The way we process and consume foods. Certain themes that I was drawing upon in that song. Those were the things I was carrying during that time in my life. It was inspired by one personal, traumatic event."
