Songfacts®:

  • Here, Dizzee Rascal teams up with Skepta as the pair bang their chests about all they've achieved in their lives. They believe no one on the scene can touch them. Skepta also produced the track.
  • This song interpolates Kanye West's "Wait 'til I get my money right" bar from his 2007 single "Can't Tell Me Nothing." Skepta has some history with Yeezy: During the 2015 BRIT awards, the Chicago rapper debuted his "All Day" single with a large group of UK grime artists, including Skepta.
  • Speaking to Julie Adenuga on Apple Music's Beats 1, Dizzee explained the collaboration with Skepta came about because they were both in the same building working on music. "He showed me the instrumental for this and I stood up," Rascal explained. "I said, 'Nah, we have to do this.' I understood it. It's one of them ones that everyone our age or above would think, 'Why didn't I do that?'"
  • Romain Chassaing directed the video, which sees Dizzee portraying a detective investigating some gang-related murders. Chassaing has also filmed visuals for Kali Uchis and A$AP Rocky.
