Ace Hood became the first artist to be signed to DJ Khaled's new label imprint, We The Best, around the time he was contributing to this song. He was asked by DJBooth.net
how he'd define grindin' He replied: "I define, "grindin'," as just non-stop work, man! Non-stop work, non-stop progress. Can't sleep during that grind - I mean, you get a little bit of it, but if you're progressin' at every hour, every second, you grindin'. You gettin' it, you gettin' it in. No matter what you may be doin', if you write a song, you just wrote fifteen songs, you write more. Anything that describes as far as progress is grindin'."
