  • Future expresses his feelings during this emotional song about a girl that has been used by other men.

    You know that niggas is full of tries, oh, oh
    Just so you know, I need you to know how to use me
    Tell me what you're usin' me for

    Future likes the girl but wonders if she only wants to be with him because of his wealthy lifestyle. However if she's truthful with him, he's willing to help her elevate herself.
  • The song was produced by Detail (Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love") with Miami production trio The Track Burnaz, who comprise Ruben, JB, and Briggs. Just a month before HNDRXX was released, The Track Burnaz landed their first major placement as co-producers on Big Sean's "Inspire Me."
  • Track Burnaz recalled the story of the beat to Genius:

    JB: "When we were doing the beat, Ruben was just playing some chords. We were just going for a real summertime vibe."

    Ruben: "That day, I was just going through chord changes and I found this really cool drum patch on Fruity Loops. I was really digging it, and I felt like it needed something a little more percussive so I added keys to it. I remember thinking, 'Man, it sounds nice, but it sounds too much like a ballad.' I wasn't in love with it. Then I found a cool guitar patch and I started playing the same changes over that with the guitar patch, and that's when JB jumped right in."
  • Detail had asked the trio to send him some beats without disclosing who it was for. Ruben recalled: "After we created it, we sent it to Detail to add some production or write to it, whatever he wanted to do. Detail kinda hinted that there were big things in the works but he never said exactly what it was and then it became the Future record."
