Songfacts®:

  • Juice WRLD's use of drugs to escape his emotional pain was a frequent topic of his music. Here, he admits how he often used codeine and oxycodone in an attempt to "drain out bad energy," but his substance abuse made him feel like he was killing himself. Sadly, the rapper's fears came to fruition on December 8, 2019. Six days after turning 21 he suffered a cardiac arrest on board a private jet following an opioid overdose.
  • Take a Daytrip supplied the beat. The New York DJ duo comprising David Biral and Denzel Baptiste have also worked with Sheck Wes ("Mo Bamba"), Lil Nas X ("Panini") and Travis Scott and Kid Cudi ("The Scotts").
