This samples the beat from Eric B. & Rakim's 1987 song "Paid In Full
." Additionally, Lil Wayne's verse borrows heavily from "Paid In Full's" lyrics. Lloyd told MTV News why he chose to pay homage to this classic track: "You know what it was, when Eric B. and Rakim was out with 'Paid in Full,' the intensity was a little bit more special. It was also something considered to be sacred. Being a part of this game, you dedicated everything you had to being innovative with your sound. There's a lot of ringtone artists who only come out with a really good song, and they disappear forever. To be back for a third time, it means that we must be pretty good at what we're doing. If we're gonna do it, let's not slack up and get lazy. Success just builds expectation in my world. That's what I want to be one day. I want to be a legend."
