    The rest of Money Man's rhymes are from the mind of a street hustler as he raps about drugs, sex, wealth, and haters.
  • Atlanta producer Nflated came up with the bass-heavy beat. Nflated has supplied the instrumental to several of Money Man's other songs, including the Epidemic track "Courtesy."
