Songfacts®:

  • Cole raps about having a full wallet on this one minute and 18 seconds song, in which he ends every line with "money" in its every form.
  • The beat was supplied by the Seattle, Washington Hip-Hop record producer Jake One. Cole's right hand man Ibrahim "IB" Hamad recalled to Vibe magazine: "I got a batch of beats send to me from my homie Matt of different producers he works with, the Jake One folder had a lot of gems. Cole did verses on a few of Jake One's beats ("3 Wishes" off Truly Yours 2 was one of them) but we didn't know if this was going to make the album cause another artist working on his album had that beat too. He ended up not using and it fit in perfectly for Born Sinner."
