The song starts with a sample of the intro to Lauryn Hill's 1998 hit song "Doo Wop (That Thing)
." Hill's vocal harmonizing continues throughout the track.
West previously sampled Hill when he repurposed her "The Mysteries Of Iniquity" as the hook for the original version of 2003's "All Falls Down
." The Chicago rapper couldn't clear the sample for legal reasons, so he interpolated Hill's song instead and hired Syleena Johnson to re-sing her parts.
