Songfacts®:

  • Miller starts this Wally West and ID Labs produced track by spitting, "Sometimes I wonder who the f--- I am," before going on to ponder his place in the world. "I feel like in a lot of people's lives, at a certain point, you kind of just look in the mirror and try and think about who I am as a person and what am I supposed to do here, what am I doin' with my time," he explained to MTV News.
  • The song features a contribution from Lil Wayne. Miller explained to MTV News that he got Weezy on this track as it has a special meaning to him. "This song is a real meaningful song to me, man, and I wanted to make sure I got Wayne on something that was heartfelt," he said. "I got him on a record that I was saying something and not just talkin' sh--, so this record right here really kinda deals with a question that I've been goin' through in my own head."
