  • This samples Run-D.M.C.'s "Dumb Girl" in the chorus. The track originally featured on the Hip Hop group's 1986 album Raising Hell.
  • Lyrically, the song includes a shout-out to presidential candidate Barack Obama and a diss of Oasis' Noel Gallagher. Jay-Z and Gallagher have had a history ever since the Oasis songwriter commented that the rapper's appearance at the 2008 Glastonbury rock festival was "wrong."
