• This is a track from Surf, a collaboration between Chance the Rapper and the band Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment. Noname Gypsy contributes a verse and a chorus to the track. The rapper previously worked on Chance's Acid Rap cut "Lost."
  • The Social Experiment's Nico Fox had the main loop for this track on his laptop. Noname recalled to Spin: "I was just downstairs writing to the loop and I ended up writing a chorus. Nico loved it. It was super spur of the moment."
  • J. Cole rounds out the song, offering some rhymes about his own duality. "Cole was there at the inception of the idea, at the conception of the idea," Chance the Rapper told DJ Semtex on BBC Radio 1Xtra. "The moment that we were working at Rick Rubin's studio and jam-banding, writing together — he was there, in session with us, helping us out. That was something that happened really organically, and he wrote the s--t out of his part."
