Songfacts®:

  • This track was produced by Evan "Chuck Inglish" Ingersoll, who is a member of the American Hip-Hop group, The Cool Kids. He is generally known for his quick beatpad instrumentals and Mac introduces him here on his first verse when he spits: "Told Chuck I had a couple raps, so we kicked the drums." ('The drums' are a reference to the bass.)
  • Los Angeles rapper Quincy "Schoolboy Q" Hanley spits the third verse. The Black Hippy MC and Mac are good friends. They spend a lot of time jesting with each other and exchanging mock-insults via Twitter and Vine. Miller told RapFix Live host Sway Calloway about his relationship with Q. "We have Vine wars and go at it," he said. "He's one of the best in the business as far as clowning go."
  • The IllRoots-directed video finds Mac and Schoolboy lounging around, eating chicken wings and drinking 40s. The director added various post-production effects such as Miller's 40 changing colors as he pours it.
