Songfacts®:

  • Wayne recruited rappers Future and Drake for the hook of this promotional single from I Am Not a Human Being II. The song leaked online with the title "Good Kush & Alcohol (Bitches Love Me)", after Cash Money's DJ Stevie J and DJ E-Feezy debuted the song at a Miami club on December 29, 2012. It was released on iTunes on January 22, 2013.
  • The sexually explicit, Auto-Tuned track was produced by Mike Will Made It (G.O.O.D. Music's "Mercy", Juicy J's "Bandz A Make Her Dance") The Beatmaker originally created the song with just Drake and Future but he told Billboard magazine that he knew that Wayne could take it to the top. "It's almost like Megatron: All the pieces just came together," he said. "I'm not trying to sound like a cocky-ass producer, but it's right on time. Nothing sounds like that on the radio."
  • The I Am Not a Human Being II album cover features a red moth spread across a black background. The cryptic artwork was designed by Kanye West who approached Weezy as he wanted to package a Lil Wayne album. "[Kanye] said, you know, man, let me do your cover. I saw the cover and I approved it," Wayne told The Times-Picayune. "He had an explanation behind it - he said, he chose the moth butterfly thing because it has so many different stages of life, and it goes through so many forms and changes, and no one can figure it out, and it's always beautiful."
  • Hannah Lux Davis directed the opulent video, which took home the award for Best Hip Hop Video at the VMAs.
