Songfacts®:

  • After a seventeen year relationship with Interscope, Limp Bizkit parted company with the record label and signed with Cash Money Records on February 24, 2012. This was the first song to be released by their new partnership with the Hip-Hop label.
  • Frontman Fred Durst met up with his new labelmate Lil Wayne in Miami after the 2012 Grammys to record this tune and the song finds the pair trading verses. Durst said of the track to Billboard magazine: "It sounds like a monster; it literally sounds dangerous. It sounds like that left of center, that place of discomfort that created rock 'n' roll, created the [heavy] metal, where it all spawned from."
  • Limp Bizkit didn't intend to record a single when they started jamming with Lil Wayne and producer Polow da Don. Fred Durst told Artist Direct: "It somehow magically lined up to have a meaning with some legs to it. I don't know how it happened. Making the song with Polow da Don, we had this vibe. I realized that as rare as our style, music, and feeling was when it came out, it's even rarer now. That's pretty weird and exciting. This feeling and music is so rare."
