Songfacts®:

  • This finds Ludacris talking about his father's alcoholism. He explained to Vibe: "The reason I wanted to finally do that is because I felt like it's bigger than myself, bigger than my father. There are people out there that can relate - [I want] to encourage those individuals to spend as much time with your parents as you possibly can. Because one day they might be gone."
  • The song features a vocal contribution by Monica. The songstress has a family connection with Ludacris through her mother's second marriage to Reverend Edward Best, a Methodist minister who is the rapper's uncle.
