For the song's opening and hook YG borrows the first line from Eric B. & Rakim's 1987 hit tune "I Know You Got Soul
"; which was later interpolated on Aaliyah's 2000 song "Try Again
." Mustard recalled:
"When I heard this record I was like 'Oh s--t.' I never thought to make this the intro, the intro was 'Ridin' Round."' Then YG was like, 'Yo you should use that for your intro.' And I was like, 'Damn you're right, I should.'"
