Songfacts®:

  • Marquavis Goolsby is an Atlanta rapper who records under the name of Dae Dae. This is his debut single, which he wrote about his life as he was working in his concreting and flooring job. He explained to We Out Here Magazine:

    "I had this big grinder and so the grinder be loud you know, and I'd have my earphones in. Sometimes I listen to music, sometimes I listen to instrumentals.

    This particular day, I was freestyling in my head. So I was just freestyling and I just happened to think of two hard bars. So I cut the machine off and I pulled my iPhone out and I wrote them two down. I put the machine back on and start grinding, and then I came up with two more.

    So I cut the machine back off and I wrote them two, and I just got to a point where I'm like you know what, I'll just call my producer."
