This song was produced by Miami producers Cool & Dre. Marcello "Cool" Valenzano and Andre "Dre" Lyon's beatmaking career started off with crafting bangers for a young Rick Ross. The duo are best known for their work with Fat Joe, first collaborating on the early 2000s albums Jealous Ones
, Still Envy
. Other credits include Kent Jones' hit tune "Don't Mind
Also credited is New Orleans native Edsclusive. The beatmaker relocated to the city of Miami after Hurricane Katrina and prior to this track had landed collaborations with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, and Curren$y.
Valenzano recalled the story of the beat to Billboard
magazine: "It started out with the elements of the track with our guy Edsclusive. We put the beat together with him, and the whole s--t came together. We had the beat sitting for a little bit and then we had a session with Joe.
"Joe had been coming to the studio and he was like, 'Play me some new vibes,'" he continued. "We played him the joint, and Joe was like, 'That's it right there.' We just thought it was a hot joint. Joe definitely heard something that we didn't hear in the beginning process.
Then, once we heard he hooked up with Infared," Valenzano concluded, "and they put the hook on it, me and Dre were still kinda like, 'I don't know, man.'" [Laughs]
