  • In an interview with the Associated Press, Flo Rida said this is his favorite track on R.O.O.T.S.. He explained: "I was obedient to my mom. It definitely talks about the way I looked at life, growing up in the projects when my homeboys would do crazy things but I didn't. I was my own leader. It shows that you should have faith, never hold your head down, never fear man."
  • This features additional vocals from Keri Hilson.
