  • The Game is fantasizing here about getting intimate with a girl. Near the end of the track he reveals her to be the model Karrueche Tran, who the Compton rapper was rumored to be dating following her breakup with Chris Brown.

    You want me to say your name, huh?
    Karrueche!


    The reference to Karrueche Tran is in fact a sample of Chris Brown featuring Usher and Zayn's "Back to Sleep (Remix)."
  • The song features Jeremih on the hook. The pair previously collaborated on Jeremih's "Oslo, Norway" from the R&B crooner's 2016 Late Nights: Europe mixtape.
  • "All Eyez" served as The Game's lead single from his 1992 album. The record is based on his personal experiences as a 12 year old growing up in Compton, California and features music inspired by '90s acts such as Wu-Tang Clan, Tupac Shakur and Ice-T. This song's title is a reference to 2Pac's classic 1996 LP, All Eyez on Me.
  • The music video was shot in Malibu by director Benny Boom. The clip stars The Game and Jamaican Canadian singer Kreesha Turner with appearances also by Jeremih and the song's producer Scott Storch.
