DJ Mustard came up with the idea for the beat while overseas. "We went to Germany, and I was hanging out with some DJ... he was like, 'You should tap into the house music,'" the producer recalled to MTV News.
"So many people was copying my style, and I was kind of like, 'Damn, where do I go? What do I do now?,'" the producer added. "When I got back to L.A., I found that sound [on "Show Me"]. So, my lil bro, his name's Mike Lee, he's signed to me as a producer, he came up with the [melody]. He came with that, and I did the drums, and I gave it to Kid Ink. Then I called TeeFlii, and TeeFlii wrote that and killed it, then gave it to Chris, and it just went crazy from there."
