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.
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
