  • This song is centered around Anna Wise's questions about different races and their philosophies (Asians, Indians, Blacks and Whites). According to Lamar, the Asian culture stresses spiritual salvation, the Indian people investing in the future, the black community sex, and the white population materialism.
  • Kendrick Lamar performed this along with Thundercat, Bilal, Terrace Martin, and Anna Wise on one of the final episodes of The Colbert Report in December 2014. The song was written the day before the performance as Kendrick didn't want to play his then-latest single, "I." Anna Wise recalled the writing of the song to Spin: "Me, Terrace, Kendrick, Bilal, Thundercat, and Dion – it's like putting six firecrackers in a room. We're each a different color [of energy]. Kendrick is firecracker, but he also has the flame, and he's walking around lighting us all. And then he lights himself and he's like, "Let's go!" And then we just go "BOOM!"
