The track samples Otis Redding's 1966 track "Cigarettes and Coffee" in a nod to "Otis
," the hit single from another collaborative rap project Kanye West and JAY-Z's, Watch the Throne
. Buddah Bless recalled to Genius
"I came about the record digging through the crates and I know Kanye did that 'Otis' joint with Jay. You hear his voice, it gives you that feel. That's why I told Quavo to go throw the dude on it. I first heard it from my grandfather, Brutus. We call him Brutus. I heard it from my grandfather like he always just play a bunch of records. I don't know why he play them so low, but he'll ride in a car and he'll play them low, but he's got the Sirius XM, so it don't have no commercials and they'll tell you the names of the record when it comes across there. For the actual beginning of the record, I left it just how it was. I didn't speed it up, pitch it down, chop it. I chopped that part but I didn't do nothing, I didn't touch it and flick it and do nothing like that because the way it came on, it was so epic, it gets you that head bob into the record like 15 seconds in."
