  • This track serves as a verbal warning from Wayne that he will "beat the s--t" out of any and all of his adversaries. DVLP supplied the taunting beat. The producer, who was formerly known as Develop until he dropped all the vowels from his moniker, has crafted tracks for Weezy since the 2005' hit single "Fireman." "It's funny because when [Wayne] played it for me after it was done, he looked at me like, 'D, this ain't for radio,' " DVLP recalled to MTV News. "He let it be known right from the jump that it was a little aggressive."
  • DVLP recorded the beat in the spring of 2012. At some point after he delivered it to Wayne, Maybach Music rapper Gunplay jumped on what is now the finished track. "Gunplay is also one of those dudes that has that wild-out, aggressive attitude and I think that's why they get along, maybe personally before music," DVLP commented to MTV News. "Sonically, I think Gunplay sounded pretty good on that record, actually."
  • In late 2015, the web-based music streaming service Deezer analyzed its huge catalogue of tracks to determine which artists used the most vulgar and offensive language. Topping the list of musicians with the filthiest mouths was Lil Wayne, with Snoop Dogg the runner-up. Weezy's "Beat The s--t," which contains 188 obscene terms, came #1 on the list of songs with the most expletives.
