  • This is the first single from American singer-songwriter and producer Kevin Rudolf's second album. The song features his Cash Money label mates' Birdman, Lil Wayne, who each have their own verse on the track, and additional vocals from Jay Sean.
  • Jay Sean told DesiHits that he enjoyed collaborating with Rudolf: "Kevin Rudolf and I get on real well in the studio. He's a sick producer. Real creative. We vibe! When I heard that beat and hook, I was like "DAMN that's BIG!!"
  • Each of the featured artists mentions a previous solo hit of theirs. In Birdman's verse he references "Always Strapped," Kevin Rudolf, "Let It Rock," Lil Wayne, "Drop The World" and Jay Sean," Down."
  • Rudolf explained the song's meaning: "The reason I wrote the song is to let fans know I started from nothing and built my dream from scratch. That story also rings true for Cash Money and all its founders and stars. I think it's important for fans to know dreams do come true if you work hard and don't let anything stand in your way."
