Songfacts®:

  • Dae Dae freestyled and recorded this song over a Young Trill Beatz beat. He recalled in a Genius attribution:

    "My boy was always begging me to do something on his beats, so I went through my Gmail and I saw his name and said, 'Let me do something on his beat one time.'

    It was one of them nights where I was feeling good, and I was high, and feeling good about the success that 'Wat U Mean' was doing. After the feeling of 'Wat U Mean,' I went in there and I was just turnt. I don't know. I was just getting a lot of response from the 'Wat U Mean' record. It was really just a happy record."
  • Dae Dae was on his own in the studio when he laid down the track. He recalled:

    "I started with the hook. I just went in there and I was just saying, 'spend it.' I don't know. I was just in there turnt. I was recording myself. Didn't nobody record that record. Nobody was at the computer recording that record.
    I was recording that record myself. I literally hit record and ran into the booth, then went in there freestyled the whole thing, It's just what I do. I'll pull up a beat and I just freestyle the whole bitch."
