  • Lyrics
  • This is the first official single from American rapper Game's fourth studio album, The R.E.D. Album. The song features singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake and Pharrell Williams from the production team The Neptunes.
  • Game told MTV News that his collaboration with Timberlake came about after the singer revealed he was an admirer of the rapper's music at a chance meeting in the studio. "We was just in the studio, me and Pharrell, working," Game said. "We already had the hook written, and Pharrell performed it himself. But Justin Timberlake walked in, and he was like, 'What's this? The song's dope.' I was like, 'It's that new song, Game featuring Justin Timberlake.' He started laughing. And I was like, 'I'm serious.' He was like, 'That'll be dope. I'm a fan.' I was like, 'Justin Timberlake listens to the Game?' He was like, The Doctor's Advocate was crazy.' He didn't even say The Documentary. He said, The Doctor's Advocate was crazy. I liked "Ol' English." ' He started vibing, then he went in and killed it. He was gone. It was like he was never there. He's fast too. He knew exactly what to do. And his vocal arrangement was crazy. He got in and got out."
  • Game told MTV News that he insists on him and his guests being in the studio together, rather than e-mailing verses. "Nothing on my album happens not in the same room," he explained. "If you're on my album, that means we got it in. I do things the old way of hip-hop. I don't believe in flying things over the Net: send it to you, you get it back to me. I'd rather just not have that person a part of my project. No love lost. That's just not how I get down."
  • As the song failed to chart, Game decided to remove it from the album and chose instead to release it on a mixtape.
