  • This song was written by Qwanell Mosley in response to various familial and financial pressures, which he dealt with very publicly on MTV's Making The Band 4. He penned the tune with Dawn Richard, who was a member of Danity Kane between 2005 and 2009. Qwanell explained to "If you watched the show, you saw the situation I was going through. You looked at the temper that I was lashing out to everybody but I wrote that song when I was going through that situation; when I felt like nobody really understood where I was coming from. So you know artists, they express themselves through music so I just wrote that song and it came out really really good and everybody liked it. Diddy said it's his favorite."
