This samples the Billy Paul track "Let the Dollar Circulate" from his 1975 album When Love is New.
Jeezy told Rolling Stone magazine: "That's my jam right there. It's a good feeling song. When people are down, that's what keeps us afloat - good music. Some of the best music is made during a recession."
This was produced by Don Cannon, who also helmed "Go Crazy" from Jezzy's 2005 album Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101.
Young Jeezy explained this track to MTV News. Said the Atlanta rapper: "I was in New York when Don sent me that sample. I just wanted to kind of go to that '70s feel of clubbin', but you still got the pain and passion in the music. If you listen to the whole album, it's like a 'we shall overcome' type of album. Like we really got to stick together on this one and get through it. That's what the whole recession is about. 'The dollar circulate' is in the back of my mind. We all know it's messed up, but when it starts back circulating, I'm thinking about what I can get. I'm thinking, 'When it gets back right, I'mma do this, I'mma do that.'"
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
