Queens, New York-based producer Pi'erre Bourne supplied the beat. A regular supplier of Carti's instrumentations, this was one of their first collaborations. Carti said:
"My producer, I met him, and he made the beat. I felt like I had something to prove. He was so excited to work with me, and I was so excited to work with him. He was coming with it, so I had to come with it, too.
The vibes. Probably three in the morning, just had to say some real s--t. I freestyled my s--t, so it probably took me like two times in the booth. Come up with the some s--t, I just be saying some s--t. Repeat the same s--t. It was a hit."
