Songfacts®:

  • This cut finds Jeezy, Game and Rick Ross rapping celebratory bars about their fame and success over Black Metaphor's soulful beat. The track is anchored by a sample of Cortex's 1975 track "Chanson D'Un Jour D'Hiver."
  • The track acts as a follow up to Rick Ross' and Jeezy's "War Ready," off Mastermind, which reunited the pair after a few years of feuding with each other. Ross addresses their truce on this song when he raps:

    I hustle everyday
    We squashed the beef to get the money
    We set examples for rich n----s in Maseratis
    My killers in the lobby
