Songfacts®:

  • Wayne collaborated with his rap buddy 2 Chainz on this T-Minus produced joint, which stands for "Rich as F---." The pair first worked together when Chainz was one-half of Playaz Circle's on their 2007 hit "Duffle Bag Boy" and the duo also teamed up on " Yuck!," the introductory track to Deuce's solo debut, Based on a T.R.U. Story. "I knew Chainz so long, before I knew he was rapping," Wayne told MTV News. "When he came with his song, I gave him that 'Duffle Bag Boy' hook, and it's history from there."

    The duo also hooked up on another I Am Not a Human Being II track, "Days and Days."
  • The video for the song was directed by Parris, who also helmed the clip for "My Homies Still." The director explained to MTV News why he contradicted the song's title by shooting it in the desert. "I just kind of was inspired by the tone of the music and what he was talking about," said Parris. "The sparseness of the beat kind of [gave me] the idea of a desert, an open space where things are not normal."

    "It has things in there which I consider lavish items, like a vintage Ferrari, I feel like is a pretty expensive car that I would love to drive," he added. "I made sure that they were surrounded by beautiful women, but I just feel like it doesn't always need to be literal."
