This was Brooklyn rapper Phresher's breakthrough single. He recalled to Genius
"It was one of them ratchet days in the studio. Real ratchet day in the studio. I'm real excited. I had a nice day at the club. I recorded that song in the morning, too. Like 7 o'clock in the morning. I'm fresh out the club. That's one of them 10-bottle-popping days. I went in the studio and I just told the engineer, 'Yo. This is gonna be one of them ratchet ones, man.' I was just excited as f--k, man. Just 'Wait A Minute,' yo. And I started wildin'! I thought it was a cool record. Every four bars, I kept going 'Wait!' That's what took it to another level."
