Songfacts®:

  • This track is from Drake and Future's collaborative album What a Time to be Alive. It finds Future running solo as he raps about his endless cash flow and admiration for his team:

    I got my clique and they represent this
    Like a ni--a wearin' jerseys
    Like a ni--a wearin' jerseys
    I get love way in Jersey


    Future oversees his own Freebandz Apparel line. "I've been interested in fashion since I was born," he told Mr Porter. "Fashion is fun. You get a chance to express yourself with photos, finding ways to connect with the camera, learn more about different angles and poses. It's like making a hit record – you want to make a hit when you do these photoshoots."
  • The song was produced by regular collaborators Southside and Metro Boomin. In an interview with XXL Magazine, Southside talked about how Future creates his records. "He don't plan on doing tapes, he just rap, feel me?" The Atlanta producer said. "He raps, he'll leave to go on the road, we'll sit there and we'll re-chop and re-put the song together and he'll come back with the illest idea, like, 'We're about to drop a tape in two days and name that bitch Monster. Let's pick the songs right now."

    "Everything is spur of the moment with him. He'll go off vibe," he added.
