Album: Blame It on Baby (2020)
Charted: 17

Songfacts®:

  • This celebratory track finds DaBaby and YoungBoy Never Broke Again trading bars about the fruits of their success. Da Baby flexes about his sexual prowess, "big rocks" on his wrist, and "big Glock" on his hip. YoungBoy, meanwhile, boasts about his royalties going to his "baby." And the reason for their huge music sales? Their aggressive and energetic styles make people "jump like, crack in the '80s."
  • During the third verse, DaBaby brags about how easy he finds this rap game to be.

    Made a song in ten minutes, went platinum

    DaBaby and producer Jetsonmade came up with his first Top 10 single, "Suge," in just 15 minutes. It went twice platinum within two months of the rapper dropping it.
  • DaBaby and YoungBoy previously worked together when both featured on Gucci Mane's 2019 track "Richer Than Errybody."
  • The wacky beat centers on a heavy bass line with hi-hats and a squeaky, electronic sound. It comes courtesy of DaBaby's frequent collaborator DJ K.i.D. ("Intro" and "Find My Way") and Rocco Did It Again!, whom neither DaBaby or YoungBoy Never Broke Again had worked with before.
