Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from Stay Trippy, Juicy J's first solo album since distancing himself from Three 6 Mafia and signing to Wiz Khalifa's Taylor Gang Records. Wiz contributes to the bridge on this track, one of three appearances he makes on the record.
  • Juicy explained the song's meaning to Artist Direct: "It's telling you what it is," he said. "It's talking about chicks and how you manage your money. I'm giving some knowledge. If you listen to it, there's some knowledge in there."
  • The Recollect produced song features something Juicy J has never incorporated before - a Hip-Hop beat. Said the former Three Six Mafia rapper to Artist Direct: "From back in the day until now, I never really made a song with a hip-hop beat over it. I definitely wanted to do that. It's one of my favorite songs on the album because I haven't done it. People get to hear me rap over something different. I never did it so I was like, 'Yo, I like hip-hop.' I wish I could've done more on the album. I put one song on there."
  • The song samples the Toots and the Maytals song "Just Like That," which was the title track of the Jamaican reggae group's 1980 album.
