Fiasco further elaborated about this track in an interview with Orange UK
: "The chatter that goes behind the scenes, either in the music business or the [hip-hop] community or whatever, they'll be like, 'Yeah he doesn't represent the streets,' or 'He's too soft' or 'He's too lyrical' or 'He needs to make music that the common man can understand.' There's a lot of people that understand my music, I just took a shot back at the people who are always like 'You're not winning awards, you gotta make music like this.' I'm like 'Nah, I like making music like this. I don't need to dumb it down.'"
