Mos Def features on both this track and "Stylo
." He told Q
magazine March 2010 that he did this song in one take. The American hip hop artist added: "I based the lyrics on a character who runs the arcades on Plastic Beach. Bobby Womack (who also contributes to 'Stylo') listened to it while I was there. When the track finished, he said, 'Somebody call the fire brigade.' I think that meant he liked it."
