by Fat Joe (featuring Jeezy)

Album: The Darkside Vol. 1 (2010)

  • Lyrics
  • This is the first single off American rapper Fat Joe's tenth studio album The Darkside Vol. 1. The Scoop DeVille-produced song features Jeezy and contains a short sample of Soul II Soul's "Back to Life (However Do You Want Me)."
  • Jeezy originally agreed to get on a different track called "Dope Boys" for Joe, but when he got to the studio, DJ Khaled kept raving about this cut, so The Snowman asked to hear it. "He played it for me one time," Jeezy, told MTV News. "We was sitting there, vibing on the verses. I went in there and knocked out the hook."
    "He knocked that hook out quick," Joe added. "I told him we were using that 'Slow down, son, you're killin' 'em,' then he started with that 'We came in this bi--- tonight to murder things. And we gonna leave this bi--- tonight a murder scene.'"
