Songfacts®:

  • Debuted live at the Grassroots Festival on July 21, 2015, this track is split into two parts. The first half finds Mac Miller promising to give his mother grandkids; the second finds him reflecting on getting his first hundred grand.

    Miller told Rap Genius: "My mom never bugs me for grandkids, she's like 'take your time.'"
  • The first half of the track was produced by New York-based record producer Sha Money X, while Pittsburgh knob twiddler Jeremy "Big Jerm" Kulousek handled the second.
  • During the post hook, Miller flips P. Diddy and the Bad Boy Family 's 2001 single, "Bad Boys For Life." He said: "There's multiple writers on 'Bad Boy For Life' so we had to clear it with everybody. I think Puffy's cool with it, 'cause he cleared it."

    "I wanted to talk to him about it, there wasn't a conversation," he added. "I would've had it, but he must've been cool with it."
