  • This is one of four total or near instrumentals on Satellite Flight. Cudi explained to Complex magazine why he included a quartet of tunes without lyrics on the album. "What happens usually is I try a bunch of different options," he said. "It's like a screenplay. When you're working on a script there's a lot of working and re-working, and that same thing happens with the songs."

    "There were versions of the album that were shorter without instrumentals that went different ways with different songs, but I wasn't feeling the flow," Cudi continued. "It's all a bunch of different equations, and there's multiple different answers but at the end of the day you have to just make a choice So, you know, it's a lot of trial and error. Experimenting. That's the fun part. I get a lot of joy from being able to have that freedom. It's never too nerve-wracking either."
