  • Here, Logic outlines his thoughts on politics. He told Genius: "I've never done a song like this ever. I've never gotten political. I've never talked about things. It ain't even about black or this or that. It's just about America."
  • Logic calls out Kanye West for not protesting against President Donald Trump:

    George Bush doesn't care about black people
    2017 and Donald Trump is the sequel so
    S--t, I'll say what Kanye won't
    Wake the f--k up and give the people what they want


    Logic told Billboard magazine that though Kanye West is a persona hero, "I'm going to stand up and say what you will not for the culture."
  • The track features verses by Chuck D, the frontman of the Long Island political hip-hop sextet Public Enemy and Black Thought, MC of the Philadelphia-based hip-hop group The Roots.
  • Chucago beatmaker No I.D. raps the outro. No I.D., is best known for his production work with the likes of Common and Jay-Z and is one of Kanye West's earliest collaborators. Logic tweeted: "Can we just take a moment to point out the fact that NO ID @cocaine80s is rapping on my album 4 the first time in 20 years What?! Like what?"
