  • This single from The Perfect 10 finds Flo Rida linking up with Bay Area rapper Sage the Gemini and American trap producer Lookas. The song title stands for "Going Down For Real."
  • Why the abbreviated song title? Flo Rida explained to Billboard magazine: "We just wanted something that would be eye-catching and different when it came to iTunes and promo, when you just see it. We just wanted it to remind you of graffiti, where people would be like, 'What's that?'"
  • The song is built around an alto sax riff that is sampled from from the Lookas remix of War's 1975 classic hit, "Low Rider." Around this time, horns were cropping up in a lot of hit songs, including OMI's "Cheerleader" (trumpet) and Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk" (full horn section).

  • Bill from UsEmirates in the sky (most likely) refers to Emirates Airlines out of Dubai luxury beyond First class flights, As-salamu alaykum is an Arabic greeting. It translates to "the peace be upon you" (I had to look that up.)
    so I suppose he is saying I throw these wild luxury parties of peace, that bring in the Money! And I guess Flo got a Cobra beer and a Buggati for his birthday, "So that birthday cake get a cobra
    Buggati for real, I'm cold bruh" !

    I want to know what "rackets, rachets hold up" means.

    What I really wanted to say is this is a great skate (rink) song, better than most old school. It's going down for real!
