The beat for this track was supplied by New York native Vinylz, who also produced "Fire Squad
" on Cole's Forest Hills Drive
album, as well as Nicki Minaj's "All Things Go
" from The Pinkprint
. The song came together when Cole took a trip to the east coast. "He called and said, 'I really want you to sit with me and work on this album for the whole week – and he didn't really sit with many producers, it was just two or three," Vinylz recalled to MTV News. "So I played him a bunch of beats, he picked about 15 of them and that's the one that stuck out."
