The song came together in Lil Uzi Vert's hotel room. Bugz Ronin told Billboard
that Uzi knew the tempo that he wanted, which he explained to the two producers. "I was structuring the melody while he was rapping," Ronin continued. "From what I've witnessed, he doesn't really write. So the fact that he was writing along was crazy to me."
Ronin added that Uzi laid down his rhymes amidst a Nerf gun fight. "We loaded up the beat, he started recording and got into his little dancing phase," he said. "So when we played the beat, everybody was just turning up with Nerf guns. [laughs] It's not really where you're at or what equipment you got - it's about making it work and sound good."
