Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single by American rapper Mac Miller off his second studio album Watching Movies With the Sound Off. The song was premiered on Mac Miller's reality show Mac Miller & the Most Dope Family and made available on iTunes on April 23, 2013.
  • The song title stands for "Somebody Do Somethin'" Miller's lighthearted rhymes for this tune are mainly free-associative, with no real meaning behind them.
  • The song was produced by Flying Lotus, whose real name is Steve Ellison. The Californian experimental multi-genre music producer and musician is the nephew of pianist Alice Coltrane, who is the late wife of legendary jazz saxophonist John Coltrane.
  • The Rex Arrow-directed video finds Mac as a super hero battling his nemesis, who is played by former child actor Corey Feldman. Miller was feeling under the weather during its filming. "I was really, really sick the whole time. It's a little blurry for me for what actually happened," he told MTV News.
