Doughty took the song title from a headline from a newspaper that he saw some guy reading across from him on the subway.
The song is built around a killer banjo riff. Doughty explained to Billboard magazine: "Good Goose, my producer, and I put the song together around a banjo part that I improvised. He just happened to have a banjo in the studio, which is weird, considering he's a hip-hop guy. He looped it, put it over a beat, and I sang fragments and phrases from my notebook."
